After spending the night in Takab in a memorable ‘basic’ hotel, we proceeded higher into the Alborz Mountains to the 1500-year-old Takhte e Soleyman fortress, spectacularly-located on a volcano crater rim. The surrounding snow fields, which included orchards beginning to blossom, made the place even more other-worldly than expected.
