Iran Trekking Tours

Enjoy Climbing and Trekking in Middle-East’s Best Trekking Destination

Located on the Iranian Plateau, Iran is an ideal trekking destination. This vast country includes two major mountain ranges, Alborz(Elburz) and Zagros. The existence of several mountains with more than 4000 m of altitude as well as a few volcanos in these mountain ranges has turned Iran into a popular trekking tour destination. Furthermore, the peaks in Alborz and Zagros provide mountain climbers and nature enthusiasts with more opportunities in comparison with similar peaks in The Himalayas and The Alps.

Mountain Climbing in Iran

There are normal and technically easy Iran trekking tours available that give amateur mountain climbers the chance to enjoy trekking in Iran and climb its top mountains. In addition, trekking in Iran is safer as there is no risk of avalanches during summer and there aren’t any crevasses. However, trekking in Iran satisfies professional mountaineers as well. Those who have more experience and are better prepared can enjoy various activities such as Big Wall climbing, rock climbing, and ice climbing or choose technical Iran trekking routes to climb mountains in Iran. Both amateur and professional mountain climbers can choose from a variety of Iran trekking tours to climb the top three peaks in Iran: Mount Damavand, the most prominent peak in Iran, and the highest volcano in Asia, Alam Kuh and Mount Sabalan which is another volcano.

Iran Trekking Tour Reviews

TripAdvisor Reviews for Cheetah-Adventures Iran Trekking Tours

We had a special experience with Cheetah adventures, discovering Iran. These days modern companies HR is using “It’s all about people”. “The people make the difference” and for the first time, I have to tell, in Iran and with Cheetah guys, it makes the sense.

I am 46 years old and have been traveling for the last 25. I have to say that I was not even closely expecting to receive such a professional agency treatment like Cheetah Adventures. One of the best treatments in my life.

When we decided to visit Iran it was difficult to choose an agency. Cheetah Adventures was recommended to us by some friends and it turned out to be the best choice. The communication was very fast, easy, and prompt from the beginning. Thank you guys for answering all my questions (even the silly ones), for being so patient with our requests and the constantly changing number of our group, for writing so many e-mails and for the useful tips you gave us.
