Shemshak, Tehran

4.2
#3 of 6 in Outdoors in Tehran
Enjoy yourself in the snow at Shemshak, a ski resort perched almost 3,050 m (10,000 ft) above sea level. Forming part of the Alborz mountain range, the site welcomes adventure-lovers and snow sports enthusiasts in a quiet, secluded area. Take one of the two ski lifts as far up the mountain as you dare, then ski or snowboard down either of the two main slopes. Although the resort caters mainly to more experienced skiers, it offers something to ensure that everyone has a good time. You can even go skiing at night, thanks to the resort's lighting facilities.

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.
