Right to the north of Tehran, in the Shemiranat district, you can wear your jacket, cover your hands with gloves and find yourself in the middle of a fairyland full of snow. Take a deep breath and look around to see how the powdery snow of Damavand mountain looks like a shield of protection as it was for the father of Rostam( a mythological character in Shahnameh called Zaal).
Passing the Tochal gate, you need to get to the “station 7” using a cable car or as Iranians call it, Telecabin. Looking at the crowded Tehran from above, you can feel the contrast between that dynamic city and this calming place while glittering snow on the ground creates an angelic atmosphere. Reaching Tochal ski resort and putting on the ski boots, you can get ready to push the poles in the ground and start skiing. When you are moving on the snow, you feel the adrenaline rush, in your veins and the desire in your heart. At this moment, the freezing weather seems negligible. However, nothing can double the magical feeling of this journey more than a hot bowl of delicious Persian soup.
You can find the Tochal Hotel, which is a wooden cabin covered with snow in the area. The warm ambiance of the cabin makes you forget the cold temperature outside. You can sit on colorful sofas, around a wooden table and enjoy hanging out with others. The hotel’s coffee shop would be a perfect place to make yourself warm with a Persian tea or Persian herbs as well. The dance of hanging snowflakes of the ceiling and comfortable wooden decoration of the cafe persuades you to stay longer. To have more fun during the Tochal Tour, you can use the game room inside the hotel and enjoy playing foosball and different board games.
The cozy suites of the hotel can guarantee a comfortable place to get rid of the exhaustion. Resting in colorful rooms with large windows can give you the option of having an awesome view of the snowy landscape. Standing at 3850 meters height, Tochal is one of the highest ski resorts in the world. The wonderful location of Tochal makes it easy to access Tehran, so you would not spend a lot of time in the car to get there, and you can have more fun.
