Natural features in Tehran are special in their own way. Tehran is the capital and economic center of Iran and at first glance, nature tourism in the most urban part of Iran may seem difficult. A city that has swallowed all the surrounding villages and gardens over the last two hundred years with unseemly development and many assume there is no natural attraction site left to explore here.
It seems unbelievable that near this very Tehran, where life is moving at an insane pace, lands with clean air and refreshing weather still exist, and places that construction hasn’t polluted their atmosphere have survived.
By saying the word nature, different scenes such as mountains, deserts, plains, rivers, forests, or lakes appear in your mind. Based on that, the city of Tehran has a strange location and it stands almost at the golden point between the deserts, the mountains, and the forests in the center of the country. Alborz range mountains a strong wall in the north of this city and beyond it, spectacular Hyrcanian forests of northern Iran can be seen, and on the other hand, with a short distance, the most amazing deserts of Iran shine in the sun.
