Zardkuh Tent

  • Overview

The program includes ascending parts of Zard-Kuh mountains that are in return part of the Zagros mountain range. Zard-Kuh area is known for having some “almost leveled” mountains that have possibility for trekking. There are two usual programs for trekking in this area. In the package that is presented here, all the overnight stays are in tent. Therefore, it is suitable for mountaineers that wouldn’t mind staying in tents with no access to shower or technology. In this package the mountaineers start from Cherry pass and then continue to Robat Bala, Algeh Bala, Dareh Shoo, Zardkuh pass and at the end Kouhrang dam. Then they would drive back to Isfahan and then Tehran. Most of the overnight stays would be in tent. The cultural city tours can be extended to include other cities as well. Besides the drive back to Tehran can be replaced with domestic flight, or the departing flight can be arranged to leave from Isfahan.
