Mount Alam-Kouh (4,850m) offers breathtaking views of everything around it. And it has an ideal location, as it is only a 3 or 4 hour drive from Tehran, located in between this stunning city and the Caspian sea.

This city with great historical, and cultural significance, is an adventure on its own. But for you, it will only be one stop in this amazing journey.
