Hike across scenic waterfalls and streams at Darband, a popular getaway near Tehran. A starting point for trekking into Mount Tochal overlooking the capital city, this picturesque town perched 1,700 m (5,577 ft) above sea level features a cemetery with tombs of a number of important Iranian cultural figures from the late 19th and early 20th century. At the trailhead you'll find many small cafes and food stands, where locals come to socialize. The Darband River passes through the village; look for the spot where you can sit right over a waterfall. Those wanting to skip the hike can take a chairlift.

  • I took my partner who is originally from Tehran and I had spoken as a trendy place and hipster chic. MAH ... Do not comment. Certainly is a curious place that maybe you wouldn't expect in a city overpopulated and polluted, basically a dirt path that climbs climbs up on until they give in because theoretically arrive at 2500 meters almost like the Stelvio but here is a trail of sand and limestone. On Thursday and Friday nights from 9:00 pm until the 1:00 is full of Bohemian people in their thirties and forties. The up-Iranian middle class. During the day empty and bleak.

Where to stay in Tehran

The northern districts of Tehran possess a more suburban, cosmopolitan feel, and a more spacious form, with a number of accommodations geared towards international tourism. Luxury hotels with pools overlooking the parks sit alongside some more basic and humble offerings, usually located on the lesser side streets. The southern districts offer a livelier experience, where guesthouses, hostels, and simple hotels line the confusing bundle of winding streets. Of course, some areas of the south open up a little, and here you'll find a good number of standard and mid-range hotels with varying levels of amenities.
