Take the cable car to the top station. On the way there and back great views over Tehran. A very nice shopping/food area at the base of the cable car station. A bus runs regularly from the car park to this area although many walk the distance up and down hill. The top of the mountain is about 3,100 metres... More

Reaching the last station takes about 1 hour,The Last Station is located at high altitude,over the clouds!so that there is not any view of tehran just you can see clouds and blue sky! The big disadvantage of lift is that the... More

A memorable trip to the snow clod mountains and 'Wow', what a wonderful place to visit. The telecabin rides were just amazing and so cheap for the experience. Felt a little scary at times but was worth it. A must visit irrespective of the time you are in Tehran. Go for it.

If you are young and like snow, ski, and winter activity, then this is the right place for you. Many young, old people visit this place for meeting and more.

Here in Tehran it is warm but by the car cable you reach Tochal mount and is cold and full of snow. You can enjoy hot brake fast in 5th or 7th station. In 7th station there is a nice hotel that can be reach only by car cable and the by seat cable.

Best time to visit the mountain would be during Dec-early feb when there will be snow all over. If you want to go hiking there is a separate route but for others we can get a rope car pass at the foothills itself for 3,50,000 IRR (all stages). Advise is to reach the foothill around 8am. The whole journey would... More

On top of the mountains in Tehran at 4000m elevation, there is this amazing hotel and skiing resort that is perfect for a day trip. Even if you are not into skiing just taking the cabin ride up is truly stunning, bit make sure you do go on a day that Tehran is not polluted ( which is almost never)... More
