The trail map here is not complete. It goes higher that the Kolakchal shelter, but stops somewhere before the summit. Just to let you know, if you're going to use it for tracking of your hike.

روز اول مسیر کوهستانی و در این فصل با افتاب شدید روز دوم و سوم‌ با مه و مسیر جنگلی شب دوم هوا نسبتا سرد بود شب گراز و شاغال داره پیمایش سطح متوسطی بود با کوله سنگین به حرف های محلی ها گوش ندید و به مسیرتون ادامه بدین امکان طی کردن مسیر با دوچرخه هم داره فقط روز اخر باید مسیرتون رو عوض کنید شاد پیروز باشید.

It’s rare to have such a high and beautiful mountain right next to a major city. I’ve hiked mt tochal more than 20 times and it never gets boring!

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.

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.
