An amazing drive from Tehran all the way to the ski lift station. A drive I will never forget with snow covered mountains gaining on your mind mile after mile and the amazing sight of modern hotels amongst more traditional ones and loads of tea and hubbly shops to stop at.

A short drive from Tehran brings you to a ski resort that will make yyou think you landed in Switzerland. Good runs, cable cars,,and nice apres-ski. Fall & Spring travelers enjoy a hike.
