Darband area

By: Z.Parvinzade

Darband was some time ago a town near Tajrish, Shemiran, and is presently an area inside Tehran's city limits. It is the start of an exceptionally well-known climbing trail into the Alborz mountain Tochal, which towers over Tehran. A seat lift is likewise accessible for those not inspired by climbing.

The Persian word (دربند Darband) implies passage or entryway (dar) of the mountain (band, a variety of vand and fand, which means mountain).

Darband is the place numerous Iranian goliaths of workmanship and culture, for example, Iraj Mirza, Mohammad Taghi Bahar, Forough Farrokhzad, Abolhasan Saba, Ruhollah Khaleghi, Rahi Moayeri, and Darvish-khan are covered (Zahir o-dowleh burial ground).

Darband Area: The first choice of recreational tourism

Darband has a reasonable atmosphere lasting through the year and sees overwhelming snowfall consistently.

The underlying begin of the trail at Darband is around 250 meters in length and is dabbed with various little bistros and eateries. These are very well known and are occupied in the nights, as local people and vacationers alike visit the numerous hooka lounges (privately called ghavekhane sonnati) along the trail.

“Dinner in the mountains !”

A nice restaurant in the north of tehran , a bit of a walk up hill but worth the climb! Fresh air of the mountains is refreshing . Along the walk up the hill many fruit vendor have got their stall there beautifully lit up with lots of great fruits to taste. And local Iranian goodies tastefully decorated worth a try! The vendors would offer free goodies to taste the Iranian delicacies. The restaurant is very beautifully done up and the food was super ,super ,super! Worth a visit in the mountains and worth an experience of Iranian hospitality !
