Hike across scenic waterfalls and streams at Darband, a popular getaway near Tehran. A starting point for trekking into Mount Tochal overlooking the capital city, this picturesque town perched 1,700 m (5,577 ft) above sea level features a cemetery with tombs of a number of important Iranian cultural figures from the late 19th and early 20th century.
