|From Amol, Mazandaran to Tehran|
On the way to Tehran, we stopped at a village to view the famous snow capped Mt. Damavand from a distance. Located about 50km from Tehran, Mt.Damavand (5,610m) is a dormant volcano with the highest peak in Iran and Middle East. Due to foggy weather, the peak was not clearly visible but it was nice to have a glance. Approaching Sanandaj, Kurdistan, we began to see vast mountain range and green landscapes and the panoramic view of Sanandaj from the hill top is just superb.
