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.

  • If you travel to Iran and stop, you must nolder to Darbanb Street. It is located to the north of the city about 5 km from the center easily accessible with a taxi. It is a universe of restaurants and tea shops placed at the foot of the mountain between waterfalls where you can eat or drink more recommended at night. Each of the venues is delicately decorated with a multitude of flowers. It is also a good place to breathe fresh air and forget about the heat of the city. Definitely one of the most popular places in Teheran.

  • Great! Nature in a big city like Tehran. Freshness and air more breathable than the center of course. Try especially the different fruit preparations you find along the way. Finally if you like to taste everything
