This tour includes traversing the southern flank of eastern Alborz to the northern flank. The southern flank is limited by desert and the northern flank by some fanciful woods, so a range of diverse natural landscapes is remarkably displayed in this tour. Due to the presence of Turkmen nomads, desert, woods and being in the vicinity of Golestan National Park, this tour is worthy from the anthropologic, botanic, geologic and wild life points of view.
