Join me on this 1 week trek across some of the most dazzling spots in Iran. And, reach the summit of Mount Alam-Kouh, the second highest peak in the country.

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. What’s more, a short flight from Europe, 5-6 hours, will take you to this wonderful place.

You can conquer the summit of Mount Alam-Kouh hiking. Hence, you don’t need any special preparation, or previous climbing experience. Moreover, our team of expert guides will follow you every step, making sure you are safe, while enjoying the whole experience. Also, they’ll make sure you get plenty of rest and time for acclimatization, every stage of the way until you reach the top of this colossal peak.

Then, the week is full of surprises, as you’ll visit many other beautiful spots. To begin with, you’ll get the chance to explore the hypnotizing city of Tehran. 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.

You’ll also visit some small towns on the way to Alam-Kouh, such as Roudbaraki. So you’ll get to learn about the local culture and even shop at a lovely bazaar. And, as for accommodation, you’ll be staying in echanthing mountain lodges,  and camping under a mesmerizing bed of stars.
