How can you get there?

The best way to go there from Tehran is taking a direct flight but most of the people prefer train which is much cheaper. We suggest you take the road to Semnan then continue your way towards Mashhad to visit more nice landscapes.

Remember that this journey takes 10 hours if you decide to take the car.


As one the largest cities in Iran, Mashhad seems to be an expensive city but as the main religious city in Iran is one the cheapest places you can enjoy most.

What to wear?

In summer you may experience very hot weather but in other seasons especially in winter the cold dry weather shows you real hard circumstances.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100 certain. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
