Important

These programs are highly depended on Trekking Season, Weather and Iran Holidays.
To go to Alam Kouh you must pass the Chalous Road and for Mt Damavand you should pass the Haraz Road. These roads are the only access to the mentioned mountains. Narrow mountainous ways which passe through Alborz Mountain Range. In fact two very busy main roads which connect Tehran to the Caspian Sea in north of Iran. On Iranian weekends (Thursday/Friday) and during Iran holidays there are heavy traffic jam on these roads. To ease the movement of the cars the roads are turned to one way direction by police in the peak of traffic jams. In general terms the best starting day is Saturday to avoid traffic problems on the roads and also to avoid the Mountain Crowd.
