Why locals love it

Every weekend thousands of people go to the north mountains of Tehran, which you can reach from more than 5 or 6 individual entrances from north west of Tehran to the north east, there are different routes easy or hard to climb, there is a telecabin in Tochal, and rock climbing on others... whatever you expect of a hiking you can find it there.

Why you should visit it

In every route you can find lots of restaurants and cafes in the beginning by 20 min walking, then it depends on you wanna go up and have a real day of hiking or just chill on the restaurants down the hill.

Special tip

For just walking on a road beside the mountains and a little exercise, choose Tochal – it's easy and there is no special equipment or shoes needed...

In the north of Tehran you can see high peaks, such as Darabad, Kolakchal, Darband, and the highest peak that is Touchal (3964 mt)for get this peak you should climb about 5-6 hrs, but if you are not climber it is not important for you there is Telecabin and use of this is very great and wonderful. From over the Tochal you see all over the capital of Iran. Tehran

Mountaining is alleays full of joy, and will get better if juxtoposed to fun activities like telecabin riding or walking up the stony streets on which lots of colorful stores and places are placed. Tehran Northern mountains can be visited through several neighbourhoods each holding their special features, but the mutual gift of them all would be the cool clean weather different from the Tehran city itself, and the happy pleasant atmosphere that one can get in through meeting other spirited people.
