This is a tight interesting itinerary covering Alamut Valley and villages around which is perfect for people not having much time to spend for trekking. In these two days you will be hiking from Garmarud to Yuj passing through amazing, different landscapes. The hiking route chosen for this tour is not a general road used by many people; it is a special trekking route with maximum beauty and visibility.
The journey starts from Tehran towards Alamut Valley. We have a one day exploring tour to the castle of assassins and will stay one night there. Trekking to the Caspian would be the next activity which will require two days trekking to reach the hinterland. When we arrive to the Caspian sea we will travel back to Tehran by VIP bus from Tonekabon town.
In this tour we have tried to use the services of local people and their facilities as much as possible so ethically part of the income generated would go to them increasing their quality of life.
