Detail:

Hiking in Iran would bring you an amazing experience.

Alborz Mountains have many routes for trekking. The northern part of the Alborz Mountains is covered with UNESCO Hyrcanian forests, which eventually ends up in the Caspian Sea.

There are many villages in the Alborz Mountains and there are many beautiful mountain routs between these villages. The most fascinating ones are the trekking routes from the south of the Alborz Mountains to the north. Trekking in these high altitudes is possible in spring, summer, and autumn. 

The most famous of these are trekking from Mazichal Valley to Roodbarak. Also, in the western part of the Alborz Mountains and close to the Caspian Sea, there are many amazing trails in the depths of the forest that flow through the forest villages and lakes. 

Due to the long duration of such programs, we can climb several peaks of the Alborz in addition to crossing the beautiful villages and beautiful Alborz in the middle of the route.

We have designed most of these routes from Tehran (the capital of Iran). We, ultimately, reach the Caspian Sea by crossing the vast alpine areas of Central Alborz and climbing several peaks of the area. If you would like to explore the pristine areas of Alborz Mountains and step into the amazing areas of this land and enjoy, we will serve you enthusiastically.
