Ski and Mountain Tours
The topography of Iran consists of rugged mountainous rims surrounding high interior basins. The two major ranges of Zagros and Alborz, as well as other minor ranges and isolated mountains, contain over 3,000 peaks exceeding the altitude of 4,000 meters. Mount Dmavand, standing at 5,671meters above sea level, is the highest summit.
Such abundance of high mountain peaks conveniently provides suitable grounds for variety of climbing or skiing activities.
Technically experienced climbers can try their skills on the glaciers of Mount Damavand and the big wall of Alam-Kouh, 4,850 meters, while there are alternative routes suitable for hikers of all level and strength.
In winter the slopes of Zarad-Kouh, 4,221 meters, offers excellent powder to the back country skier and through April to May its meadows covered with wild flower beds are pasture to the nomad herds and a very popular destination for outdoor enthusiasts.
