Located in the Alborz Mountains to the north east of Tehran, Darabad, is now attached to Greater Tehran. Darabad is mostly used as the starting point for hiking the southern slopes of Alborz, especially in the summer.
Today, Darabad, is home to one of Iran’s most famous museums for natural history called the Nature and Wildlife Museum of Iran.
Definitely worth a look if you are in Tehran and looking for an interesting place to visit.
