Overview

Mountain Climbing in Rizan

The Rizan mountain with a height of 3533 meters is located in the North-East part of Tehran, Alborz province. Besides Rizan, four more peaks are alongside this mountain including Atash Kooh, Saka, Person, and Andar, which make an eye-catching range of mountain all together that looks like a wall. In order to get to this wall, you have to go to through Afje village. Afje is one of the villages of Lavasanat and it is located 5 km away from the North of Lavasan. Getting to this village is not easy but rather enjoyable because from a specific point, cars are not allowed to pass and you have to walk. As you get to the Havij plain, the unlimited beauty makes you blink your eyes a couple of times to make sure that you are not dreaming.

One of the most beautiful sites of Afje is the remarkable Havij plain or as locals call it, Gorchul. According to locals, The reason for this name is that this plain used to be a big field of carrot (havij). In order to get to the Rizan, you have to pass this magnificent plain. This plain is a peaceful and quiet place that gives you the opportunity to breathe the fresh air far from the noisy, crowded and polluted cities. The way to get to this peak is a little bit hard and it needs special equipment and skills of mountain climbing.

Each season offers its own special kind of beauty from the peak. However, the experts believe the most beautiful season for climbing and enjoying the marvelous view is winter. Although it needs warm clothes and extra equipment and it gets harder to get to the peak, the hardness vanishes as you get there and the enchanting beauties of plains make you forget how tired you are. You wish to sit there for hours and just enjoy the amazing landscape that nature shows you.

Words come short to explain the beauties and the fascinating views you get to see. It is simply a great experience for nature lovers and mountain climbers. Make sure to wear warm clothes in winter and have the primary equipment with you.

Mehr als zufrieden! Waren vor Corona im Iran und hatten anfangs Probleme mit dem Visum. Wenige Tage nachdem wir uns an TAP Persia gewendet hatten, hatten wir das Visum in der Hand. Auch bei anderen Fragen oder Problemen stand uns das Unternehmen schnell und freundlich zur Seite!Wir waren von TAP Persia mehr als begeistert und können deren Leistungen zu 100% weiterempfehlen!

Patient and informative. 5star tour guide. We were a group of 4.Thanks to our last moment schedule we had not booked a tour. Tappersia was kind enough to let the local tour guide know and he was very promptly arranged to meet us for the FREE ISFAHAN WALKING TOUR. Amin was the tour guide. He greeted us warmly as we entered Chehre Sotoon palace and what started there ended up with it being the most interesting walk of my life. He was patient with our queries and waited as our mixed group which had people from Spain and Argentina with us.... As info had to be translated for them to Spanish. A free walk in any part of the world usually lasts for an hour or two.... Not amin he would treat all our doubts and questions with respect and answer them.... Ended up with the free walk lasting more than half a day. Will go with 4/5 stars for Amin.

Beautiful city! Really enjoyed doing the walking tour in Isfahan with Samaneh! Her good English and in-depth knowledge in history and arts, not to mention her fun personality, made it a great experience for me 😉

Excellent and fast service I wanted to buy travel insurance from them but their payment system wasn't working so I used the chat functionality on their website, they got back to me within 15 min, they contacted me directly, sent me the insurance papers before I even paid and showed so much goodwill. I was really astonished by their fast response and great service!

Most relaxed holiday thanks to Tappersia We came to Iran in a troubled time so booked everything through Tappersia just so that we would feel a bit more secure but the experience was beyond expectations. I have never had a more relaxed holiday. Everything was already booked for us; we had a private car picking us up every time we changed places, offering tours and stops in between all this on a very affordable price and always being there for every question we had. Totally recommend!

Erfan was the best

I had a fantastic time on this climb; it was pushing my limit but I felt well afterward. Erfan, our guide, was professional and friendly. He took us to the top and we cooked some eggs on top. OMG! It was the best omelet I have ever had.
