Iran North West Tour (10 Days)
Tehran, Masuleh, Caspian Sea, Gorgan, Turkmen Nomad Region
Day 1 Tehran – Check-in to your hotel. Exploring the city will be started in the afternoon.
Day 2 Masouleh Masouleh is a breathtakingly beautiful village located 1050m above sea level in the Talesh Mountains. Masuleh does not allow any motor vehicles to enter due to its unique layout. It is the only village with such a strict prohibition in Iran. However, the small streets and many stairs simply make it impossible for vehicles to enter. Houses are built on the steep slopes of the mountains meaning that the streets are built on top of the flat roofs of the lower houses
Day 3 Caspian Sea / Ramsar – Arriving at the Caspian Sea make our base the popular sea resort of Ramsar. It has the highest level of natural radioactivity in the world due to the presence of radioactive hot springs.
Day 4 Caspian Sea / Ramsar – An excursion to Javaherdeh village near to Alborz mountains gives us some spectacular views of the region.
Day 5 Gorgan – Leaving the sea coast, we drive to the town of Gorgan where the green Alborz Mountains stoop to meet the north eastern steppe.
Day 6 Turkmen Nomad region – we are going to visit the local sights of this Turkmen Nomad area and if we’re lucky enough, we will be invited to spend one night in traditional nomadic yurts.
Day 7 Tehran and Depart – A short flight from Gorgan takes you back to Tehran where you are free to depart in the afternoon.
