“A chill place to get feeling of the good old days of Iran”

I have visited the mountainous regions of Iran since childhood and dizin is one my favorites. I prefer to make it a day trip as the accommodation is limited and bit pricey. But as a foreigner visiting its worth a night stay to chill with Iranians there. What nice to do is a trip from tehran to north (caspian coast) and on the way stop at dizin for a day or two. Going there with tour is recommended as roads can be dangerous during heavy snowfall and even 4WDs can suffer.
