    This is a historical castle about 1400 years old and is built on the top of the mountain. From the beginning till gate is about 1200 steps , 400 meters height and 4km of hiking in a beautiful jungle. To reach highest point of the castle you need to go up 50meters height and a few more steps that has a fascinating view. After all it worths trying.

    Yes, there are a lot of stairs (1000 steps actually) but trust me, it totally worth going all the way up, because up there lay a beautiful historical castle you can not believe. Also going up, the route is amazing and filled with trees. It's just fantastic!

    It's the best place that I have ever seen in my life in Iran. After having traveled to most of touristic places in North Iran I could strongly recommend everyone to see this amazing attraction for at least one time in their life. Superbe
