mount Touchal
Touchal (height 3962 meters) is located just in north of Tehran and is popular for Tehran clibmers. They can claim this hight only in a half a day and eat their lunch at home because Tele-cabin is available for return to Tehran from 3700 meters height. An this level there is a five star hotel with full accommodation for rest, open 4 seasons.

8 months of skiing is possible. For climbing this mountain there are 10 well known ways. First of all and oldest way is from Tajrish and Darband that is the most beautiful way to get to the Shirpala shelter and Amiri (Siah Sang) hut and Touchal summit. It takes about 6 to 8 hours for semi professionals climber to reach the peak. On this route, climbers have to face some rocky and stony paths for the first 2 hr of climbing and then Shirpala shelter appears.

In this place you can rest and eat breakfast. Inside the shelter there is some accommodation for staying the night and a restaurant with light food.
