Overview

Shir Kuh Climbing Tour

Shir kuh Mount tour starts in the early morning and you should get enough rest the night before in Yazd. It is also possible to sleep in the village beside Shirkuh mountain.

At 6:00, hiking starts in the foothills which are 2000 meters high. Of course, we will have some stops for breakfast and rest on the way. Climb normally, after 5 hours we should be at the shelter.

After getting some rest, we continue to conquer the summit in 2 hours. Congratulations you are 4000 meters above sea level.

After exploring this unique area, we will go back to the shelter. After some rest in the shelter, we continue our way to reach the same foothills, where the trip started from(Yazd tours). Normally we will reach there in the evening.

Later, we head back to Yazd.

The second possible plan can be climbing for two days. We will get the shelter around noon. Sleeping one night at the shelter, the next day we will conquer the summit. Then go back to the starting point.

However, both possibilities need physical readiness for hiking the mountain for 10-11 hours.

Excellent service and support Excellent Service ! i am surprised by the reactivity and the will to help and find quickly hotels, flights and solutions for me, even though the holiday season makes things challenging. Chatting through whatsapp made things super smooth and extremely easy. I was interacting with two people from TAP Persia, Rojin and Sohrab. They were just amazing ! They are the ones who reached out to me directly and interacted instantly with me day and night. Great job guys !I used earlier a different company but i was disappointed, i strongly recommend TAP Persia .Keep up the great work !

Fabulous agency - can't recommend more highly for travellers to Iran I decided to go to Iran at short notice and was only able to do so thanks to the exceptional service provided by TAP Persia.What further complicated was my ignorance of being in the middle of Nowruz and the impact that has on flight availabilities etc.In the first instance, that revolved around speedy obtainment of a visa as well as other aspects such as insurance and mah card via their great-value welcome pack.Thereafter, all of my accommodation, tour guides and transport between destinations was arranged by the beyond-wonderful Mahgol with tremendous efficiency, patience and responsiveness - I could not praise nor thank her enough.Communications are as good as can be.With my lack of Farsi and, more specifically, incomprehension of the alphabet, doing things in this manner was the only way to go.All of the guides - Fatemah, Amin, Fardin, Moji, Peyman and Masoud - were fantastic being passionate, knowledgeable, smarter-than-average bears and very nice people.Rasool, Mehrnoush and Sohrab in the office were also very helpful.I would say though that, to help them (especially) to try to draft your itinerary as much as possible before approaching them as this will save time i.e. places, days in each, hotel price-range then trust them to select the latter for you.

Great Service 🙂 TApersia accompanied us well on the way to our Iran visa. My wife's visa took 2 weeks longer than mine (German EU & I'm Swiss). Our questions were always answered quickly by the nice Mahgol via WhatsApp. We think she did her best for our visa processing. After a while, we were also asked how we were doing! Nice, support and promptness are at the highest level.

Solo Saudi female in <3 IRAN <3 10/10. It's hard for me to be succinct, but I will try. I am a Saudi who has been impressed, curious, and infatuated by Iranian culture(s), Iron Age history, Islamic & other religious histories, architecture, and geography for over 15 years. Yum, and food. I wanted initially to continue my Persian language study at Dehkhoda Institute, however student visas take much longer than other visas to process, and I would likely miss my class during the processing time. I was disheartened and scrambled through my Google bookmarks looking for old travel that I had saved over the years in my Iran folder. 😉 TAP Persia was bookmarked numerous times and I quickly applied for a tourist visa. Hey, I can still practice some Persian as a tourist, right? THE PROCESS WAS SO EASY. So smooth! Mahgol deserves all the praise and recognition for bringing relief to my anxious-self (because I had already long-ago booked my airline tickets and took time off work!), and she walked me through all the steps in a timely manner and with competence and grace. Even during the first week of Norouz and Ramadan, I got a friendly update and advice -- got my tourist visa within 5 or 6 days (the Ministry was closed for Ramarouz, but WOW that was still quick). I cried from happiness and surprise... Thank you thank you. I will be in Iran April to mid-May. Originally I just registered for TAP Persia welcome package + visa help, but now I'm pretty curious about signing up for one or 2 of their tours now. I am beyond impressed and excited. This travel company, Mahgol, & this team already made me feel safe and like I'm going home, and I imagine with their business practice, will prosper for many years down the road. Thank you so much. Someone please remind me to update this post with photos once I arrive to Iran <3

Iranvisum Ich habe mein Visa für den Iran über TAP Persia beantragt, da der normale Weg zu kompliziert war und sehr viele potentielle Fehler birgt. Ich kann den Service definitiv empfehlen. Alles ist sehr gut und detailliert beschrieben. Der Preis für diesen Service ist es in meinen Augen definitiv Wert. Auch der Kontakt nach der Beantragung über WhatsApp war sehr gut. Sehr freundlich und hilfreich.

winter hiking

We booked the tour in winter without really knowing what to expect. Based on our stay in the country and fitness level and on what we wanted to do in Iran. We slept in our sleeping bags, a really cool experience. Yazd barely had snow or rain so it was mostly chilly. Mahoud is a sociable guy and he knows a lot about the area and its history. Would definitely recommend him as a guide.

Yum Yum breakfast

Masoud was fantastic! I did a day tour with him. First, we had breakfast on the base of the mountain. The breakfast was simple and delicious. He brought some white wheat pounding that was really delicious. Masoud made the hike the right level, teaching about wildlife, and it was very fun! I’d love to come back again.

wonderful hiking experience

A dream came true. The one-day hiking/trekking trip in Yazd, surrounded by rocks and snowy mountains, sunsets, hiking, beautiful scenery, and great company. Masoud, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and funny and made sure everyone had a great time. I had never been on a hiking tour in a foreign country. Thanks to rasol’s guide and knowledge on the mountain. The scenery is breathtaking along the way to the top of lion mountain. we will definitely come back again and hopefully do a longer hike next time. BTW, we stayed at this shelter on top the night before and had a casual and delicious homemade meal too.

Spirtual tour

Visiting Zoroastrian sites was recommended to us by a friend, who actually had the tour with Tappersia. I had already arranged the hotel and the car to pick us up from the train station and rasol was more than willing to arrange the guide to explore the city from the hotel. I was fortunate enough to visit the Zorestran temple on a nice afternoon. The guy said the fire has been burning for centuries and during the ceremonies, it has not been turned off!!!!. We had to visit the fire from a distance but it was impressive enough. As we started the tour, he took us to the hill which many years ago left the bodies on top to be exposed to carrion birds. Later the day we came home cleaner and lighter and would definitely recommend this tour to anyone interested in taking part in spiritual experiences. Thank you
