  • The castle of Assassins is in itself an exceptional location, with a beautiful view of the Valley. Worth it, even if the taxi from Qazvin is not given (including about € 50 for a private taxi). Advice for those who would like to do a trek in the corner (for example cross towards the Caspian from Garmaroud): it's very beautiful and quite physical, but you'll pay full price because trek organizers, findable on the internet, are in monopoly and a State of mind not very friendly of the type "take it or leave it". So expect an invoice salt (for the country of course) for very rustic conditions. After doing so I would advise instead to do a trek elsewhere (the Iran no lack of mountains) because Alamut Valley undergoes a 'Lonely planet effect' which makes it a tourist trap. Enjoy your stay!
