Tochal Mountain Climbing
In this 1 day tour, you will be hiking all the way to the peak of Tochal mountain. We start our hike from Darband in Tehran and hike all the way to one of the most famous mountain shelters in the country, Shirpala. On our way, we will also pass the beautiful mountain village of Pas-e Qaleh village. While camping at the Shirpala shelter at 2800m altitude, you will enjoy your dinner with an astonishing view of the city of Tehran. There are numerous rooms plus a number of restaurants and cafes surrounding the shelter.
After that, we will hike towards our last stop, Amiri shelter, before ascending to the peak. After a short break in Amiri shelter, we will be ready to conquer the 3964m peak of Tochal. You will admire nature’s beauty while passing by waterfalls, fountains and scenic views on our hike to the peak. Tochal is mostly dry and warm in Summer. However, in Winter it is usually covered with heavy snows and the temperature can fall as low as -30 centigrade.
On our way back we will also visit Bam-e Tehran, the famous mountain park in the north of Tehran which is also a quite nice place to observe the urban life. Our final stop before finishing our tour will be a visit to the Sa’dabad Complex, the massive palace built and inhabited by Qajar and Pahlavi kings.
