Trekking, hiking and adventurous backpacking trips in Iran, are what the most of our guests looking for recently. In some of the trekking cases, it doesn’t make a big difference if you’re not a professional mountaineer and explorer, but the correct plan and guide definitely can make a change. Considering safety while adventuring and having fun at the same time, is the reason why Hi Tehran Tours” is peaky about designing tours and choosing its tour guides. Alamut or the valley of Assassins with its mysterious background has been a top choice for trekkers recently. Breathtaking diverse nature of Qazvin province along with ancient and historical sites have made this destination popular for both culture and history lovers and climbers. That’s why in this tour we have designed three different packages for both of these groups. The Qazvin city itself is one of the most amazing cities when it comes to culture and historical sites; Especially its unique Sa’d al-Saltaneh Carvansaray and Bazaar.
