It was an interesting and lively area for dinner time. Restaurants served mostly kebabs but it was the atmosphere that counted. Enchanting environment. Traditional setting.

Take metro line 1, go to terminal station Tajrish and then walk to Darband (40 minutes, uphill). Form Darband square keep walking up the stairs.

the place is good for mount climbing in very early mornings , after mount climbing you can have breakfast or extend your stay by walking around and eat lunch in fresh mountain air , you need to be careful about traffic jam

It's good place for camping, hiking and mountaineering, of you go in the top of its summit, you could see some shelters which made by mountaineers, during a valley you could see shops, birds and beautiful river.

Darband is a great place to go for a break from busy Tehran and go hiking. Interesting restaurants offer a place to relax on the way to the top. Enjoy the view when you get there.

One of the most beautiful attractions in Tehran, with diversified restaurants and cafes. Nice view of mountain and starting point of climbing. Fantastic shops are also good experience.

The idea of a climb into the hills with water tumbling around you surrounded by little cafes etc., all fell flat when we visited this area. Filth and dirt everywhere and the idea of eating anything in that environment was not an option. Sadly, what could be a lovely spot surrounded by the snow topped Alborz Mountains is ruined by...
