The North

In the north of Tehran towers a mountain called Tochal which is part of the Alborz mountain range. It has an altitude of roughly 4.000 m and can be seen from almost everywhere in the city. During most part of the year the peak is covered with snow.
The Alborz mountains stretch over a huge distance from the borders of Armenia and Turkey in the Nortwest to Turkmenistan and Afghanistan in the Northeast. 

I make friends easily at the workshop and one of them takes me in his car on a trip to the Caspian Sea. On our way to the sea we cross the Alborz mountains which are desertic in the south and get greener and greener on our way north. The landscape is extremely beautiful and fascinating.
