Remember reaching Alam Kooh and hiking in the area highly depends on trekking season, weather condition and Iran holidays. To go to Alam-Kuh you must pass Chalous road and for Damavand you should pass the Haraz road. The mentioned roads are the only ways to these mountains. Two narrow mountainous and very busy main roads which pass through Alborz Range and connect Tehran to the Caspian Sea in north of Iran.
On Iranian weekends (Thursday/Friday) and during the Iran holidays there are heavy traffic jam on these roads. To ease the movement of the cars the roads are turned to one way direction by police in the peak of traffic jams. Generally speaking the best starting day is Saturday to avoid traffic problems and also to avoid the Mountain Crowd.
