Ski holidays in Iran
A winter holiday in Iran, not exactly the first thing that comes to mind thinking of this country in the Middle-East. Thanks to the diversity of the natural landscape, there are Sahara-like deserts on one side of the country and high mountain tops with large quantities of snow fall in other parts of the country. The ski resorts in Iran are located in the Alborz mountain range, north of the Iranian capital Tehran. The most of these ski resorts are within 1 / 2 hours drive of Tehran. Ski resort Tochal is closest, within 30km of Tehran, and ski resorts Dizin, Shemshak and Darbandsar are all within 50-70 km drive. Out of all of these resorts, Dizin is the biggest and most famous ski resort.
