TRIP HIGHLIGHTS & ITINERARY

In this expedition, we explore specific parts of East Alborz Mountain Range. We will see how high walls of Alborz divide the climate and culture between desert in the south and Hyrcanian jungles in the north which survived before the ice age. We will use abandoned and sneaky dirt roads and dry water paths and rivers which go more trough the deeper parts in nature and protected areas, to avoid the touristic areas and show our guests the real nature of Iran.
Badab-e Surt mineral spring, Khaled Nabi cemetery and the famous Hyrcanian jungles of Golestan province are the highlights of our journey

  • We will pass through the dry water lines and dirt roads to arrive at small desert microclimate with lots of natural colours and shapes on the ground.
  • We will get into the area where Turkmen lives with their famous horses
  • There is a high chance of seeing wildlife.

Travel Itinerary

DAY 1: IRON & SALT

Starting from Tehran, we heading to East direction. This road which is known by Firuz Kuh road takes us to the famous bridges of Veresk which build in World War II by Austrian engineer. It is 110 meters high and open since 1937 for trains. We will continue our route to cross the mountains through our sneaky routes and dirt roads to get on the highest balcony at 3000 meters elevation. When you stand on this 45KM ridge, you will realise how it keeps the clouds and jungles on one side and the desert on the other side. After lunch, we have to cross Parvar protected area before we arrive at unique spring of Badab-e Surt. After thousands of years combination of salty water and iron oxide water from two springs creates the unique scene of natural pool balconies in nice orange colour at the elevation of 1840M. After visiting this natural national heritage, we will set up our camp at the side of the forest in this area and prepare our dinner (local house accommodation is also possible upon request).


O/N Camping or local house

DAY 2: HYRACANIAN JUNGLES

After breakfast and last walk on the grassland around the spring, we will continue through the dry water lines and dirt roads to arrive at small desert microclimate with lots of natural colours and shapes on the ground. Then again by crossing one neck to the north direction, we will see how the climates change so quickly in this area. This diversity in climate also brings diversity to wildlife and human life and culture. By lunch, we will cross to Golestan province. We have many protected areas, wildlife reserve and national parks in this area.
Our experts will choose one of these sights depends on the month and the weather, which has a good view to the area so we can have our optional walk in the evening and the morning after. There is a high chance of seeing wildlife in these walks. We will do camping on nice view point by the evening (Local house accommodation is also possible upon request).


O/N Camping or local house

DAY 3: KHALED NABI AND TURKMEN LAND

After breakfast, we will cross the last ridge of mountains to arrive at the north side and get into the area where Turkmen lives with their famous horses. We will get into the heart of this region and drive up to the shrine of Khaled Nabi (which Turkmen believe him as a pre-Islamic prophet) to see this entire vast region in one panoramic view. We will have some walk in the cemetery next to the shrine to see the unique stones they use at the very ancient times. After watching the sunset from up there, we will drive down and stay with the locals in their local house tonight to enjoy their hospitality.


O/N Camping or Local house

DAY 4: OLD FAMOUS SILK ROAD

We will say goodbye to the locals and continue our route to the south and cross the jungles and mountains to the desert side. Again we will see how all of these climates could be as close as 20KM to each other. We will visit the Shrine of Bayazid Bastami which was a Persian Sufi known as “King of the Gnostics”.

Everything was arranged very efficiently. Nothing went wrong. Our guide, Mostafa Farhadi, was remarkable. Not only was he a brilliant driver, but his knowledge of the culture, history and contemporary life of Iran was amazing. He also had superb contacts in all the places we visited.

Most we enjoyed the landscape and wildlife we saw, it was just amazing and not comparable with nature we found in Germany and Europe, one of my greatest experiences! Second we enjoyed the kindness of you guys (Mehdi, Negin and her family, and the two houses we stayed) it was like meeting family and friends :)
