Summary

Summary  
We have designed this trip for hikers who would like to have long trekking in remote areas. This trip is one of our special trekking tours through the depth and breadth of Alborz mountain range and through a fascinating slice of Persian history. Passing many villages in the heart of Alborz, meeting local people and views of mountains make this journey a different one. This is a memorable trip not only because of its physical beauty and the variety of landscape encountered but also because of crossing paths with history and myth some of which have acquired world renown. We start from Tehran with one day exploring tour of the valley of assassin in the Alamut valley. Then we continue to an amazing huge canyon to visit the castle of assassins. Following an old historical Hashashin trail from Alamut valley will lead us to Mt Alam kuh. In this tour we will have 5 trekking days before reaching to Rood-Barak and Kelardasht, a village 50 km south of the Caspian Sea. There will be an optional ascend to Mt. Alam kuh (4850 m) from Hesarchal camp in the last day of trekking. The journey will finish in Tehran.
