Originally just coming for the Ali-Sadr Caves we ended up going on a trip with the owners of our guest house Amanday Hostel to a village and lake nearby and also climbed the local mountains Alvand and Kalaghlaneh.

We started the hike before sunrise on a Friday (their day off) and climbed up two the first two shelters with lots of locals. Higher up the amount of people got less but still we had great company and help to climb the last meters of both peaks!
