Hello to all from Iran! Today our group started climbing to the peak of Tochal (3960m). We went to the Elburs mountain range, 900 km long, where both Tochal and Demavend are located. In 3.5 hours we reached the Shirpalla Refuge at an altitude of 2800 meters. The route passed along a picturesque path, the upper part of which is the Via Ferrata.

We were comfortably accommodated in the shelter and walked a little up. Tomorrow we will have a hard day - about 5-6 hours to the top of Tochal, then 5-6 hours down to Tehran.

In the evening, we watched a film about Russia at the refuge and went to bed early.
