Most travelers visiting Iran and Tehran have no chance to see the countryside while there is 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 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 the sea level and is covered by mountains of Central Alburz.  
There is hiking activity considered on the route between villages. The untouched landscape, river, sounds and colors of nature in a non-touristic area makes this trekking route a special one. 
While the first day is a short walk around the village, the second day would consist of around 6-8 hours hiking up to 400- 500 m. On the trekking route, we will cross the river and waterfall. 
We can perform this tour for the whole year and depending on the season, you will see different scenes and beauties of the nature. 
Trekking route is flexible depending on the weather situation. In spring, the village is covered by many different plants and flowers and more water flows in the rivers. Temperature in the night is a little cold but day temperature is pleasant.
In summer when Tehran is really hot, the temperature of the village is enjoyable because of the mountains around which makes it perfect for trekking. 
In autumn weather is a bit colder and color of nature changes making one of the best seasons for trekking between villages. 
Although temperature in winter is cold but still has its own beauties. The village and mountainous areas are so quiet, suitable for those who wish to escape from Tehran for a couple of days and experience a short hiking in Central Alburz. If you are travelling in winter be ready for very cold weather and freezing nights. We can provide some equipment for you in the winter time if you inform us in advance. 
For those interested, the best time for trekking is April to end of November.
