Many travelers visiting Tehran miss the beauties of its countryside while there are great offerings around Tehran for adventure/cultural tourists. There are ski resorts, wildlife, protected areas, rock climbing opportunities, seasonal ice climbing and mountain biking areas around Tehran. It would be a good idea to escape Tehran and relax in the villages nearby for a couple of days. From the city, less than one hour drive will get you to the village that we have chosen for your journey. In this village you will experience fresh weather and calmness forgetting the pollution and noise of Tehran. The altitude of the village is around 2000 m from sea level and is covered by mountains of Central Alborz.

The itinerary is related to the season that you are travelling in. Each season has its own attractions, so as to enjoy the beauties of them trekking route is flexible depending on the weather.

In spring the village is covered by many trees, more water flows in the rivers and the flowers are blooming. Temperature at night time is a little cold while day temperature is pleasant.

In summer when Tehran is really hot, the weather of the village and mountains around are cool making them suitable for trekking. Higher altitudes will present us fresh air quality.

In autumn weather will be colder and the colour of the nature will change which making it a perfect season for trekking between villages.

Expect cold weather in winter but it’s still has own beauties. The village and mountains are so quiet and still suitable for short and long hiking. If you are visiting during winter, then be ready for very cold temperature and the night time would be freezing. 

There is hiking activity considered on the routes between villages. The untouched landscape, river, sounds and colours of nature in a non-touristic area makes this trekking route a special one.

The first day is arrival to the village, having some rest and adopting yourself to the altitude and atmosphere. On the second day, you will have a hiking day from a village to another village and we will ascend around 450m height takes approximately 8 hours to go and back. The third day is a tight one to climb to the summit. The mountains are attached to each other, the altitude is between 2950 m- 3000m (1200 meter above the village). It takes a whole day around 10 hours trek to climb up and return. At the end of the 3rd day we will go back to Tehran.

Day 2: Trekking between villages around

On this day we will have a short trekking between villages to get prepared for the next day’s long hiking. Today’s trekking would be a good acclimatization practice for those who live at sea level in their home town. After breakfast early morning, we will start trekking from the village. The chosen route is an interesting path close to river between mountains with many trees covering the way. We may see herds of sheep and their shepherds and guard dogs on this day. After a while we will stop at a point for a short rest. Then we will continue trekking through a canyon hiking up to 450 m. Around noon we will arrive to another village.

Day 3: Long trekking in Central Alborz protected areas & return to Tehran

We will rise up early in the morning at dusk. For this day a longer and tougher route has been chosen. We will go on the ridges to have a better view of the area. After drinking a fresh coffee we prepare our day pack and start trekking from the village. You will carry your packed lunch and breakfast and we will kick the road towards the top. There are a few mountains around the area which we will consider one of them for moderate trekking to reach the summit. The mountains are close to each other and if the weather is clear you can see Damavand Mountain. The altitude of the summit is between 3000-3200m, this means that we will hike up around 1200m from the starting point.
