One of the beautiful trekking routes in the nature of Iran is trekking from Zanjan heights to Rudkhan Castle in Gilan
I have already mentioned one of these trails on the “Abbar Zanjan to Masuleh Gilan, A good route for Trekking In Iran“.
Here I describe another these routes. Walking from the heights of Abbar village in Zanjan province to the forest of Rudkhan Castle (Qaleh Rudkhan) in Gilan province with a length of about thirty-five kilometers usually takes two to three days.
The best season for this trekking tour is during the summer. Usually the nomads of this region come to these areas from the middle of June.
We camp on the way in the summers of these region to spend the night .Summers are places in the highlands that due to lower temperature, in spring and summer are used by ranchers, nomads or locals, but in autumn and winter are deserted. .
Numerous summers in Gilan province are located in the forested heights of this province. The summers generally have open space and wide landscapes and are covered with natural pastures and grass. nomadic huts and free horses and flocks of sheep are attractive attractions of these summers.
