Central and Western Alborz Tour
Food and Drinks
Stars to beauty of tour :
General fitness needed : Beginner to Professional
Altitude in 1 day : 700 to 1500 m
Number of summits : around 5 classical tours to many professional ski tours .
The amazing Alborz massif stands just less than 2 to 3 hours of drive from Tehran . From wonderful summits close to ski slopes to the higher and less touchable one all together makes a unique complex for Ski touring . Alborz range is on higher latitude which means the quality of snow is normally wonderful till end of March and even later on higher summits . Another advantage of this area is possibility to organize from easy tours to very advanced and hard days . The smaller summits ( around 3000 to 3500 meters high ) to the higher ones ( Alamkouh 4850m ) all available to give you an unforgettable ride .
