Iraj Maani and Mahmoud Hashemi in Gasherbrum

The story of Atour Adventure’s foundations…

Our story started when 15 years of friendship between Iraj Maani and Mahmoud Hashemi entered a new phase. When friends became business partners as well. Mahmoud and Iraj have been mountaineers from early age; it did not take them long to become best friends. As the time passed, they became more and more famous in the mountaineering world of Iran. The fame was intensified with the successful ascends of some +8000m mountains. Now, many people referred to them and asked them to guide their tours. That, made the two of them thinking, why not turn this to a business. They knew all there was about Iran’s mountains as well as skiing and mountaineering in them. With this knowledge, they grew their business day by day. And here we are now. An incoming/outgoing travel agency active in adventure tourism and focusing on trekking, skiing, cycling, and desert safari.
