Darband, Tehran

(4.3/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
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. Using our international travel planner, Tehran attractions like Darband can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
