Overview

Rock Climbing in Bande Yakhchal

Bande Yakhchal is located in North of Tehran and it has turned into an attracting place for rock climbers. Almost all practical classes like mountaineering, rock climbing, caving and rescue are being held in this area, in fact, it has become the rock climbing center for entire Iran. Let’s start our trip from Darband, an old area in foothills of Alborz mountain. Trekking from Sarband square, you’ll see lots of cafes and chic restaurants ready to host people and travellers, on both sides of the route. however, if you look at it from an eco-tourist’s point of view, it may not be a great attribute since the number of shops and cafes are increasing. Mounting may get somehow difficult in the route. So, it may not be suitable for people without physical fitness or mountaineering practices. Although if you want an easy trekking and richer nature without too many cafes on your way, Darakeh route is a better choice.

After about one hour, we’ll face a dilemma and the way on our right will lead us to Bande Yakhchal. There’s also a cafe available in case we need more rest. By passing the bridge on our right, we enter the main route of Bande Yakhchal. After a little walk, we see that the way leads us through a cafe, called “Baghcheh Camping”. Next, we get to an area consisting of some hills and covered by trees, which is a wonderful place to relax. Going ten minutes forward, on the top of the forest, we’ll get to a reviving natural spring. Drink and supply enough water in your bottles too as there won’t be any other water sources on the rest of the way. Climbing more from here, we will get to a vast area covered by large rocks. This region is called Bande Yakhchal.

 

Athletes who come to Bande Yakhchal, love this place so much that gave special names like Albert, Maryam, Kolahak and Chekmeh to its rocks. You will probably see some rock climbers, who are practicing on these rocks. In long distance, in front, a 200-meter mountain wall is visible. This wall is actually the last destination for professional rock climbers and they come to this region in order to defeat it. There’s also a shelter called Shervin on the left side of the wall. It’s very possible that all the big rocks in Bande Yakhchal already fell down from top of this mountain wall. You can relax for some time, consider the environment and enjoy the nature around you. Observing and asking about different rocks and plants will teach you a lot.

 

You could try rock climbing in case you have physical fitness and enough training for it. A sport which is a great option for adrenaline junkies. As you set your steps and grab stones with your hands, you’re determined to get to the final destination. It can be a good treatment for depression and brings lots of happiness. That’s why even in playgrounds there are artificial models of rock climbing for kids.  It also can control the blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes and increases body stamina. After a challenging and joyful day, we get back to Tehran with an exhausted body and a peaceful mind.

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!
