Tochal Ski Resort – Tehran

Most travelers visit Iran for the historical sites and to experience rich traditions. However for the winter visitors, there is the opportunity of riding the longest gondola lift to one of the most famous Iranian’s ski resorts.

Tochal Telecabin, located in the north of Tehran, is said to have the longest gondola lift lines with a length of almost 7500 meters. The construction of this telecabin took place back in 1974 with cooperation with a French and Austrian company.

Even though this telecabin was originally built for reaching the ski resort at an altitude of more than 3740 meters, it was soon being used for other recreational activities on the mountain top as well. Besides the ski season, you can ride the gondola lift to the top to enjoy the view and watch the mountain climbers climbing their way up to the peak from the very early hours of the day.
