Darband, Tehran
(4.3/5 based on 500+ 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.

  • There isn't much to do in Tehran, then a visit to Darband you can do, but don't expect much. If you eat meat skewers fateveli Cook very well. I ate one a bit undercooked and I ruined my vacation. A week of diarrhea!

  • near the see and a big arabian hookah and a dizi ( Iranian traditional food ) this was all the trafic worth and one place to go if i go back to iran 
  • Wandering around this part of the city, especially on a Friday, is a delicious way to soak up the art of living in Iran. Walk mainly frequented by... Iranian tourists. Plan a jacket as the temperatures are cooler than in downtown and watch out for the distance, sometimes longer that they seem.
