Desert trekking and desert excursions

The northern portion of Iran is covered with thick rain forests known as Shomal or Iran’s Jungles. The eastern portions of the nation are mainly desert basins, including Iran’s biggest desert, the Dasht-e Kavir, in the north-central part of the country, and the Dasht-e Lut, in the east, as well as several salt lakes. There’s also the Center Desert, which, as its name implies, is found in the central parts of the country. Rain clouds cannot reach these areas because the mountain ranges are too high.

Desert tracking, camel riding, bicycle riding, and 4×4 driving trips are just a few of the activities available in the desert.

There are certain camping spots accessible in some arid areas. Na’in and Kashan are the best places to go for low-cost desert excursions.

Ski

Around Tehran, there are five ski slopes. They may be found in the towns of Dizin, Darbandsar, Tochal, and Shemshak.

The Dizin piste, located north of Tehran and accessible during the winter months through Chalous Road or Fasham Road, is the longest.

Shemshak has a more professional slope that is utilized for national and international competitions.

The ski slopes near Tehran can all be reached by car in around 1-2 hours.
