Alamut Hiking Tour
Alamut is situated in the south face of Alborz Mountain Range, surrounded by the plain of Qazvin in the south and the densely forested slopes of Mazandaran province in the north. Moving from Qazvin to Alamut, you pass through hills and curvatures that are the significant themes of this spectacular area’s natural composition. Two great castles of the Ismailites, Lambsar and Alamut, along with Meymun Diz and Nevizar Shah Castles are amongst the wonders of this area, belonging to Hassan-e -Sabbah and his cult of the Assassins who ruled this area for over two centuries. The ancient Castle of Alamut has been described by Marco Polo, and that’s one of the reasons why it has always been attracting lots of tourists from all around the world.
On your journey toward the beautiful Lake of Evan, at the height of 3710m, you cross the country of Pichebon, at the height of 2800 m. Then you will move to the north from Alamut Valley for two days, you reach the coastal line of the Caspian Sea, through the col of 3000. This marks the end of your trip during which you can enjoy the eye-catching beauties of both the north and the south of Alborz Mountain Range. And you go back Tehran via amazing Chaloos road.
