Alamut valley is more famous for the Assassins Castles but I think the most rewarding thing to do in the Alamut valley is the nature and exploring the traditional rural villages and cultures.

Alamut hostel is a nice place where you can have access to all Alamut sight seeings including the Lake Ovan , Alamut Castle,Andej Canyon and etc…

Alamut hostel is run by a family ,
actually it’s a family business where you can find tradi tional foods and traditional style of the house ,very warm people .
Hossein is a decent guy and knowledgeable of the area he can also answer all your travel questions .
