Binalood mountain range is located at the eastern end of the eastern Alborz Mountain, geographically between the cities of Mashhad and Neyshabur. The highest peak of this mountain range is about 3320 meters above sea level.
Mountaineers and nature lovers who plan to go to Mashhad and Imam Reza pilgrimage after a mountaineering, usually start their ascent from the southern slopes of Binalood near Neishabour city. Then, by climbing the eastern slopes of the mountain, after a one-and-a-half-day trek, they descend from the northeastern slopes of Binalood, and after reaching the villages of Zoshk, Jagharq, and Torqabeh, ride in public vehicles for coming Mashhad.
But this time our ascent to Binalood Peak was through the northern slope of this mountain range, through Ferizi village and Sib valley. There are two shelters along this route.
Sib (Apple) Valley is a scenic valley full of gardens and trees that was the beginning of our ascent and trek to Binalood Peak. To reach Sib Valley, it is necessary to have a guide or use GPS, because there are several intersections in this way that you will easily go the wrong way.
