Darband, Tehran

4.3
#1 of 17 in Historic Sites in Tehran
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.

  • Walk and great restaurants and super way to go. It moves up the mountains always in the North of Tehran and then runs into the mountains in. Restaurants are built in the mountains.

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.
