This trip is one of the toughest mountain biking adventures created by Adventure Iran for whom would like to have a challenging active mountain biking near Tehran, the capital. It’s designed for professional mountain bikers with good physical fitness who have previous experience in different mountains. This trip is a two day exciting adventure starting from Tehran. The location of the mountain is in in Lavasanat district, which is located in the heart of Alborz Mountains. Lavasan is in the center of Lavasanat and the office of Caravan Kooch (Adventure Iran) is in Lavasan town as well. Lavasanat is a countryside district located in northeast of Tehran. The first day plan is mountain biking from Lavasan up to the base camp on the mountain. We have around 1000m ascending to reach the camp place (2700 m). We also pass a couple of villages on the way and we have a few stops to rest and photography. We have an amazing night in the camp with an unforgettable night in a place surrounded by five high altitude mountains from 3000m up to 4000m. The next day plan is to climb to the summit. There is a single trail up to the peak but we have to carry our own bike up to the top. For summit day, we have to ascend 450m. After a short rest in the Parsoon peak, we have an amazing downhill around 1500m back to Lavasan. Depending on the weather situation and the team fitness, there is another detour road back to Lavasan through another single track route to extend the day. If we do detour, we can cross a small forest to reach a lake and will enjoy the beautiful landscape and it might be possible to swim in the lake if the weather permits. On this trip, Adventure Iran will provide all the camping equipment and sleeping bags as well as mountain bikes, helmet and flat tire kit. We will run this tour from April to November covering three different seasons. Each season has its own beauty. If you are travelling in autumn or early spring please bring your warm fleece and rain cover as it might rain or snow during those seasons. Also, if you would like to extend this trip please get in touch.
