OUR SKIING TRIP
Tochal is both Tehran’s first ski resort and also the closest one to the capital city. With 3,700 meters high, Tochal is also considered the highest ski resort in the country. This is while Tochal Peak itself has an altitude of nearly 4,000 meters, making an ideal destination for mountain climbers as well.
Located in northern Tehran, Tochal Ski Resort is easily accessible via Velenjak or Tajrish Square. Once there, just hop on the gondola lift and enjoy the view until the last stop.
The resort only accepts skiers from 6:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. as everyone must leave the resort by 3 p.m.
Unlike Dizin or other ski resorts, Tochal’s piste is not very long and enjoys a mild slope which makes it an ideal place for amateur skiers or even those new to the sport.
The resort also has a hotel and a restaurant, making it possible to stay overnight. Two lines of chairlifts and few lines of small-scale lifts are among other facilities of the Tochal resort.
While off-piste skiing is forbidden for safety reasons on the south side (facing Tehran), experiencing an-hour long gondola ride to one of the highest peaks of Tehran which would give you an unparalleled view of the city is something you don’t want to miss.
