Do you know where dwellers from Teheran and around like to go to ski, or have an afternoon hookah? Maybe it sounds unbelievable but the place is really the same in both cases – Tochal. This monumental mountain is accessible via cable car or on your own foot. There are not many tourist, given the picture media have created about this country. At least, you can fully enjoy the nature here.
I have seen a lot – huge Buddha statues on Sri Lanka, beautiful temples in Thailand and Laos, monumental medieval cathedrals across Europe… But Iran is just breathtaking. We start our journey in the former capital located in the center of the country.
Iran is still largely an unknown place to many travelers. People who have been there usually agree the country is very hospitable and safe. So, lets take a look at the city that would just suck you in and won’t let go.
Last time we didn’t mention one place worth travelling to. The Alborz mountain range raises next to the city. The most popular mountain there is Tochal which lures people of the city to spend free time there and rest from the noisy big city life.
