Trip Notes

An exotic and exciting mountain biking trip covering central Alborz and terminating at the Caspian Sea. The starting point is full of scenes and completely untouched regions in the mountains only three hours from the capital city of Tehran. Passing a unique high altitude region peaks between 2000 m to 3300 m would be enough to see many attractions in the heart of the Alborz Mountains. At this height and on clear days you will see some of the most famous and important mountains in IRAN on Alborz mountain ranges like Mt Damavnd (5610 m), Mt Alam Koh (4850 m),  Mt Khole No (4390 m), Azad Kooh (4360 m), Mt Kolon Bastak (4160 m), and more.  On the way will come across traditional villages, farmlands and mountain springs. Depending on time of the year we will have the opportunity to stop and mingle with the travelling nomads, shepherds, farmers, in an area that not many local or overseas travelers get to see or experience. The terrain is different. Depending on the region and altitude we will ride on the quiet back roads, single tracks, off roads but most of your time you will spend riding on dirt tracks through the mountains and forests. In one part of the program, we will descend from an area where there is no existing road or track, we will carry our bikes for a short distance and then find tracks that have been left behind by animals or streams having to negotiate through rocks and bolder.
There are a variety of animals, wild or domestic that we will hope to see through the trip. We will be staying with the locals where you will experience the local cuisine and friendly hospitality. The biking will finish in popular city by the Caspian Sea, where you will get the chance to cool down with a swim in the Caspian Sea. On our way to Tehran from the sea we will have a mineral hot spring spa. In Tehran we have one day city tour before departure back to home.
