Start your Iran trekking adventure with a hike through Tehran’s northern mountains. Start with scenic Darband (1,700 m AMSL). From there, hike 1 hour to Pas-e Qaleh (2,800 m AMSL). Rest and grab a snack from the local cafe. Hike another 2 hours to Shirpala Shelter (2,750 m AMSL). After a short break, hike 3 more hours to the Summit of Mt. Tochal (3,960 m AMSL). After enjoying the view, get on the Tochal Cable Car 7th Station and ride the cable car back to Velenjak. Head to Tehran for the night.
In the morning, head for the famed Alamut Valley, a mix of Patagonia, Switzerland, and Outback Australia. The valley is home to the remains of the Castles of the Assassins, the medieval world’s most feared religious cult. Hike towards Gazorkhan Village for Alamut Castle (2,100 m AMSL), the home of the legendary leader of the Assassins, Hassan Sabbah. Explore his famed library, garden, and training grounds. Finish the night with a trip to the nearby scenic Ovan Lake. Rest in a local homestay for the night.
Head towards Razmian Village of Shahrud Valley for Lambsar Castle, another major stronghold of the Assassins. The military approach of the Assassins involved establishing multiple strongholds within hostile territories, scattered geographically throughout Persia and Syria. They would strike their targets in public then retreat to their local bases. Alamut & Shahrud Valleys served as safe retreats when other strongholds had fallen. Hike through the area and rest in a local homestay for the night.
Return to modernity in the morning as you head back towards Tehran. Get some much-needed rest and exchange stories with some local guests. Tehran is a massive metropolis, with jaw-dropping architecture, extensive museums, and a lively food scene. Don’t let the day go by without exploring some of the attractions near your accommodation. Prepare for tomorrow’s ascent to Damavand.
In the morning, drive 2 hours to the Polour Base Camp (2,400 m AMSL), located in a quiet village situated on the Haraz River. After enjoying breakfast with scenic views, get everything ready for a 5 hours hike deep within Lar National Park towards Damavand Camp 2 or Goosfand-Sara (3,000 m AMSL), the first base camp on the way to the peak of Mt. Damavand. One of Iran’s many protected areas, the park boasts pristine forests, breathtaking rugged mountains, and an incredibly rich ecosystem. It's also a perfect place for birdwatching and wildlife photography. Spend the night in Goosfand-Sara.
After a heart breakfast, begin the ascent from Damavand Camp 2 or Goosfand-Sara (3,000 m AMSL) to Damavand Camp 3 or Bargahe Sevom (4,200 m AMSL). The hike will take a little more than 3 hours.

You can hike as high as 4,900m AMSL to prepare yourself for tomorrow’s finale. Spend the night in Camp 3.
Today is the day to conquer the Summit of Mt. Damavand (5,600 m AMSL), the highest volcanic mountain in Asia.

In the morning, drive 4 hours towards the sand dunes of Maranjab Desert, one of many tough terrains caravans had to cross. Drive to nearby Kashan, the birthplace of “kashi” or modern tiles.

In the morning, stop by Abyaneh Village. Characterized by a peculiar reddish hue, the village is one of the oldest in Iran.

Marvel at Sheykh Lotfollah Mosque’s mesmerizing dome, Shah Mosque’s enchanting courtyard, & Ali Qapu Palace’s view. You can also visit Chehel-sotun Palace, the royal Safavid reception for foreign dignitaries and ambassadors. At night, you can go for a night hike in Sofeh Mountain Park (2,250 m AMSL) and enjoy the panoramic views.
