Lar National Park is a protected area on the foot of massive Mt Damavand (5610 m) with many impressive summits of Central Alborz Mountain range over 4000m. Officially it is in two provinces of Tehran and Mazandaran. Lar is one of the preserved areas of Iran with watery and mountainous ecosystem only 70 km far from north east of the capital. The National Park of Lar is as big as 30,000 hectares and doesn't have any residential area in or around it. During the summer when the National Park opens for local tribes, you see semi nomadic shepherds from the desert areas further south take their herds to graze in the summer months. You may also see some Persian tribes making KOOCH (move to high altitude and cooler places in the hot season) in the park territory. Because of different ecosystems and ecology, different species live in this park such as birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians and aquatics (brown bear, viper, partridge, gamma and red-spotted trout). This area is also used for beekeeping considering the various plants it has. The park opens from May to Mid- August and then is closed for the entire year. The best time to visit is beginning of May to the end of June when the area’s grassland is covered with wild flowers. All domestic visitors need a permit to visit the park. Foreign visitors also need entrance permit and some extra paperwork. In order to obtain a written permit for foreigners from the Environment Department in Tehran, we will need some time as it is bureaucratic and time consuming.
