Trekking is one of the most amazing activities in Iran Tours. You will Love the experience of walking and trekking among the villages, mountains, and deserts of IRAN.
The Dasht-e Lut desert, one of the Earth’s hottest and driest places, is a (hardy) trekker’s dream, with incredible rock formations, sand dunes, salt plains, and the Valley of Meteorites – imposing landscapes that enchanted Marco Polo and, 700 years later, Wilfred Thesiger.
The Alamut geographic region is a region in Iran including western and eastern parts on the western edge of the Alborz range, between the dry and barren plain of Qazvin in the south and the densely forested slopes of the Mazandaran province in the north.
Alamut was a mountain fortress located in the Alamut region in the south Caspian province of Deylam near the roudbar region in Iran.
Between 1090 and 1256, under the leadership of Hasan-e Sabbah, Alamut became the site of intense activity for the Shi’a Nizari Ismailis, functioning as the headquarters of their state, which consisted of a series of unconnected strategic strongholds scattered throughout Persia and Syria, surrounded by huge swathes of hostile territory (the Seljuq empire).
Today, it lies in ruins, but because of its historical significance, it is being developed by the Iranian government as a tourist destination. The ancient fort of Hassan Sabah, Alamut Castle, according to many British tourists who refer to it in their travelogue, is about the size of a small village on the outskirts of London or Sheffield.
Alamut Castle has an area of 20,000 square meters, at an altitude of 2,000 meters above sea level. Many tourists, in their articles and travelogues, have described the fort of Alamut as a tilted rock cliff, which rests on a steep mountain slope of 70 degrees.
The fort’s two-part architecture, with an east-west organization, is made of solid walls that, tilted to the right, follow the topography of the red, brown, and rocky mountain rocks. The water from the castle is also supplied from the mountain springs and with a clayey plumbing system it comes from springs like the Chalder well into the castle.
This fortified fort at Alamut Heights has only one access road to the eastern side of the castle. The path to the castle takes you to a zigzag climber who is himself a complete natural hiker and hiker. Alamut itself means the Eagle’s Nest because it is a tall castle.
If you have a question about how many stairs there are in Alamut Castle, you have to climb more than 300 stone steps to get there, though locals have prepared horses and donkeys to help you along the way. So do not travel without craving fitness.
