  • Hike steep in places but short. Don't expect too much, there's not much if not silence and panoramic views. Take water, especially if it's hot!

  • Actually, the view from the top doesn't offer a great panorama, the city appears chaotic and essentially modern. Though the visit worth, the Zoroastrian Temple perched on the Hill has a charm. Of course the usual isn't for everyone and it is better to have walking shoes

  • If you are young and fit can do this mini excursion without too much effort. You take the bus 29 from Sheykh Bahaei (15,000 Rials, you pay the driver, women must rise behind). After 20 minutes it pops up a small hill on the left to climb, cost 150,000 Rials).
