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.
