Great strenuous hike. Not a lot of vegetation to see but a great workout. There are 4 trails to go, the easiest through Velenjak entrance. Start the hike no later than 4am regardless of the season. Non technical hike but ensure you have crampons for snow and ice in winter. Don’t hike in March and April since snow melt makes the trail super tricky. I recommend take the lift back down to save the knee pain.

on Mount Tochal Summit

The Recording GPS is all off due to Iranian Gov't's GPS scrambling in the area, but it was a beautiful day and a great hike. Not really too hard if you are okay with the altitude and heat. We did it in 2 days staying at the shelter as a prep/acclimation climb before summiting Mt. Damavand.

it's good if you dry land other than that is just an uphill.

I'm not sure why Kolak chal and tochal are labeled together as despite them merging at the top, they have separate entrances.. in any regards my review is for kolak chal , entering from niavaran.park jamshideyeh. it's a moderate to difficult trek , and the only reason I would give it the higher rating is because it has a very steep incline , almost all the way up (3.5km distance ,2.5km elevation) with very little to no rest (meaning it's pretty much up hill all the way) which not only kicks your butt on the way up but kicks your knees on the way down. nevertheless it was beautiful in autumn and once at top you can get some eggs, lentils or pinto beans to get charged up for the return downhill. make sure to get some cinnamon tea and rock candy, hits the spot in the cold weather!

I did this hike in May 2003 accompanied by a local guide in three days. The contrasts between the high alpine scenery at the top and the lush rice terraces near the Caspian sea were amazing. People you meet on the way were, with no execption, amazingly friendly. This is just one of many hikes and treks you can do in Iran.
