Alamkuh is second highest peak in Iran. as high as Mont blanc, north face is vertical and only possible to climb in some routs, but south routs are long and far.

Itinerary

Arrive to country and getting familiar to atmosphere and culture and sightseeing in Tehran, including Golestan Palace & Grand Bazaar. Also we will have a chance to have a look from above to this large scale city in Milad tower in afterrnoon.
Our mountain part starts in Taleghan valley, which is 150km drive west by Tehran. Direct drive to accommodation place and having a short hike in afternoon would be our plan for today
In morning after an hour drive to the end of Parachan valley our first trekking day will start. Its gonna be long, but path is passing nice view of river and rocks. our destination is a flat area in 3400m to set first camp.
For reaching base camp in "Hesarchal", our approach is "Hezarcham" pass. Its about 4000 Meter and connecting to big valley. This use to be only possible approach to Alamkuh. Thanks to less snow and new roads in Tangelu from north east. On our way to base camp we will summit Lashgarak 4200m.
On previous day we had magnificent view of more than 30 peaks higher than 4000m. In this day we try two of them. the ones with shorter rout to access. "Gardonkuh" and "Setare" are in same direction and will give us a chance to look to another valley.
Today will start by twilight for us. Alam kuh with 4850m height, is second highest peak in Iran. Mostly known for its big wall in north face. A vertical granite wall for more than 800m. our plan is to trek from south rout to summit.
Hopefully after a successive try, would be wonderful to break on Caspian sea coasts, It demands a trek down to north east valley in "Hesarchal" and drive for 70km on dirt road and paved one. luckily in afternoon we celebrate together on coastline.
Alburz Range placed as a long and high barrier between Caspian sea and central plateau of Iran. But to cross it to reach Tehran we choose on of famous routs, road 59, or Chalus road. Ascending to 2600 via tunnels and zigzag paths and representing colorful trees and landscapes. Getting ready for flight back to home.
