You should take a four-wheel-drive from the agency which I put the picture of its card here to reach you on the foot of the Babak's Castle's mountain then you have to walk and go for climbing about 1:30 hours to reach the castle, when you want to come back, it's better to call the driver to come for picking you up.

We booked a taxi ride to this place at our guesthouse in Tabriz. It took us around two hours and a half to get there by taxi; once we got to the base of the hill, we started the walk up and it took us one hour and a half to get to the castle. It's a rough climb, but totally worth it, as the views of the castle and from the castle are really beautiful. At the base, where there is a parking lot, you will find a shop selling water and some other drinks, but no food. There is also a public toilet near the parking lot.

One of my best experiences in Iran (even though I had many).
As a 28-year old in fairly average/good shape, I found it to be a difficult trip. The weather was very hot since it was in the middle of July and there's not really anything to buy once you get there. Luckily we had brought soooo much water and we had just enough. I also recommend wearing hiking boots or really solid shoes. I wore sandals and it was not a good idea. I fell once and was close numerous times. It was amazing though - once we actually reached the top there were locals yelling out / singing poetry and some were playing instruments while walking down. The atmosphere was unbelievable.

We made a tour in the North of Iran organized by Nasser, who works in the Tourist Information Centre of Tabriz. We had a wonderful day. The (hike to) the Babak Castle is amazing and the views are really impressive! We recommend it to everyone!
