Most of Iran’s climbing tour designed for famous mountains like Damavand, Alam kuh or Zard Kuh mountains and most of travellers looking for trekking routes in the guide books or search in the internet to find recommended hiking tours. In the other hand, there are always plenty of adventurous hikers looks for new destinations that other travellers they don't go. This tailor made itinerary is designed for who would like to go on off the beaten track out of the tourist area. Even for local climbers its not a popular route for mountaineering. Another advantage of this exciting hiking is the short distance with the Capital and its one of the nearest mountain region outside of Tehran (50 km from downtown). On this trip, we will send you to Dasht-e-Havij ( Gor chal plain ) at 2600 m above sea level that is located in heart of Alborz Mountains. This area is our base camp and its a vast field surrounded by 5 challenging peaks with different height. (Parsoon peak 3150 m, Saka peak 3270 m, Siah Riz 3290 m, Rizan 3530 m and Atashkooh 3730 m ). On early May, the camp area will be covered by different type of plants and flowers. We will have plan to ascend 3 of those peaks; As the path and difficulty of each peak is different, we will find the best peak according to the group fithness. Your mountain guide will help you to make the best decision on the first night in the camp. But we have chosen 3 of them and wrote it in our daily itinerary. In all of the peaks, we have speactaculare view of many mountains in central Alborz and massive mount Damavand as well. There is no technical climing for this trip and all of travellers with good physical fithness can join the tour. The grade of this trip is moderate in late spring to early autumn (April – November) and for the rest of the year would be challenging. Also we have to cross some rivers for a couple of times and that would be a good to be prepared with extra cloths and trekking sandal for this trip. We will have camping in Dasht-e-Havij and supply all of the camping stuff and gears and sleeping arranegment as well.

Dasht-e-Havij (Havij means Carrot) or Gor chal plain at altitude of 2400 m is one of the most famous attractions in Afjeh village situated in Glanduak, Lavasanat area. There are different historic narations about its name which indicates that the most part of this vast land was planted Carrot but you will find no trace of that any more. Gor Chal in old Persian means fire place, the combination of two words; Gor means fire and chal means place. It is told it’s named that because it was hot comparing to the surrounded places which is so cold and pleasant but there is no record for this assertion. During Safavid dynasty, it was an important hunting area with some beautiful cascades called Passchoobak, Saboosetan, Charand and lots of maple trees and of course fruit trees then ends to Lar National park. Along the path at the end of the valley near the rocky wall the remains of Safavid Caravansaries are obvious. There is an old bath dated back to Safavid era which the rural people still use that. Qajar dynasty also used this path to get to Lar National Park as countryside.
