Tehran: Winter Sun

Modern and traditional, secular and religious, rich and poor

If you can get far enough out of the city to see the sun (note the ski resorts), there are few better places in the world to fully enjoy and experience the natural beauty of winter sun than Tehran. Whilst mainland Tehran may have its views somewhat obscured by the intense smog, the mountains of the Alborz provide the perfect setting to sit and watch the beautiful winter sun rise and set in true tranquillity.
