fantastic view
Sep. 2019
The remains of Alamut castle is located in the northwest of Qazvin province and close to Gazer Khan Village. Hasan Sabah, the propagator of Shiite Ismaili, chose this area for his activities during Seljuk period.
The castle was captured by Mongolia Hulaku Khan in 654 AH and its library was burnt and transformed into a prison.

it is suggested to choose a professional driver, the road is full of hairpin turns.

The Alamut Castle offers some great views across the Alamut Valley, they are renovating parts of the castle, but already a very worthwhile place to visit

worth taking time to step up the stairs to the sumit
May 2019 • Friends
yes it worth going there but should not be the only visit in alamut! I met many tourists who just came there to visit the castle only , but it is a big mistake! before the castle I visited several places which worth more! I had a tour guide friend who gave me good tips and also he drove me the places! His name is Farzad who has a page as Alamut eagle over here on trip advisor!

Alamut fortress and its amazing view on tge summit
May 2019 • Friends
It took one hour and half from Qazvin to Alamut. The road itself is beautiful with mountain scenaries. It takes 20 minutes to step up thr stairs and you are supposed to buy ticket. The view of ghazor khan village and horizon from the summit is perfect. You must know that it is not the only point in alamut if you have thr plan to go there. My guide took me to some amazing lesser known places in alamut. Not bad to contact him if you are going to have a trip to alamut. He is helpful to travekets and speaks fluent english:

Fantastic view
May 2019 • Couples
It is definitely worth climbing up the 500 steps to this castle for the views. The walk was relatively easy though you can hire a donkey or a horse. The castle itself is in ruins but the unfortunate feature is the scaffolding that has been put up to give access. There are also rusty tin roofs covering much of the structure making photography almost impossible.

Great Tour with Vahid
Apr. 2019 • Solo
I did a day trip to Alamut valley incuding Alamut castle with Vahid (WhatsApp +989122814150) and had a blast! The nature in the valley, the canyons and the views from the castle are absolutely stunning! Vahid showed me all the good places, stopped whenever I wanted to take some photos and we I was also served very delicious home cooked lunch at a family that runs a guesthouse and restaurant next to the castle. Vahid also explained a lot about the history of the castle and the region as I didn't have much time to do any reseach in advance. He's a really funny and knowledgeable guide and he even helped me out to plan my onward journey the next day and helped me catch the right bus from the highway to Tabriz, I highly recommend him!!

Breathtaking views
Mar. 2019 • Couples
Breathtaking views from the top of the Hasan Sabah fortress ... 1300 steps up. Make sure you have good hiking shoes as it can be very slippery ( we had lots of snow end of March) and the hike up and down is not as easy as it looks. The castle is not in very good shape and has scaffolding all around but it is still worth going up. Across the castle is your best option for overnight: Alamut tourism guest house ( +982833719289, use whatsapp to call). It also offers lunch if you are only travelling thru. It is basic but great location and helpful host family.

Very steep climb. It is under repair. Alamut valley is beautiful. After the climb we had lunch at a local restaurant and then a guide showed us around the valley.
