Qazvin province lies on the southern skirts of Alborz mountain. The Alamut region connects the green jungles of Mazandaran province to the north and the dry lands of southern Qazvin province. This mountainous and rich region is definitely the top natural attraction of Qazvin province. There are numerous sights in this region, some of which are well known among tourists (like the area surrounding the Alamut Castle). However, there are also some less famous sites in this region which are worth visiting if you are an outdoors fan.
