Best Camping Spots in Iran

What’s better for changing somebody’s mood than a reuniting camping trip back to where we all crave so much; nature. As refreshing and self-reviving as that might sound, camping trips in Iran are not made for everybody and anyone who buys an Osprey Ariel Backpack and stuff it with the essential camping gears is not going to have the time of their life; a small misstep or bead of wrongly interpreted geographical information can end in a camper being chased by a roaring bear through the never-ending jungle in the north or a climber finding themselves drinking from a shallow spring while a brown mountain wolf is curiously looking down on them and thinking to himself, that’s a juicy breakfast for me and my entire horde. For this reason, and for you not to wind up in a near-death experience, we have gathered a list of the best camping spots in Iran widely approved and popular that pose no threats to outdoor adventurists.
Camping in Iran is free and legal and exceptionally fun, particularly for blue-eyed blond-hair tourists in Iran who receive the best services and Persian hospitality.

These guys are professionals and that’s what makes bus rides in Iran an unbelievable example worldwide.

Chalus Road; The Ace of Iranian Mountain Roads

Chalus Road or “Jade Chalus” or any other transit route to the north of Iran, or how Iranian call it “Shomal”, are not just candy-twist steep paths and highways through the long stream of Alborz mountains isolating the north of the country from the rest of it, they are green pathways to scarcely touched Persian (Iranian) heavens with traffic jams over the holidays that could make you feel the hell that was prophesied in the Great Testimony and Jesus warned us all about.
