India to UK in 90 Days – Iran Chapter – Gilan Province & Military Coup

I By:   I 4 months ago I   0 COMMENTS I   Iran I   , , , , Next up was Gilan province.I got to know about this place during my stay in 7 hostels in Tehran.It's always good to seek some recommendations from the locals apart from your own planning.From Qazvin,i rode to Rasht.I stayed in Masal for the night,it's a small town with few stay options but pleasant weather.I had to talk about weather every time as south Iran was so uncool and unreasonably hot to me.There are some very nice trails in this region,will keep you busy for a day or two at least.

India to UK in 90 Days – Iran Chapter – Damavand & Alam Kuh

I By:   I 4 months ago I   2 Comments I   Iran I   , , , , , , , , As i repeat one or many times that northern Iran is heaven for motorcyclists.You have to witness the photos to believe it.Trail to Mount Damavand was quite fun and it ends at one point from where you have to trek to reach the summit.I camped for the night as the weather was cloudy and it did rained during the night.It was cold a bit and i had quite some difficulty to keep my toes warm. To my disappointment weather was not clear next day as well and i could get only this much glimpse of the highest peak in Iran and the middle east. READ MORE

India to UK in 90 Days – Iran Chapter – Isfahan

I By:   I 5 months ago I   0 COMMENTS I   Iran I   , , , , , , , , , , , While you are in Shiraz,don't miss the Shirazi sweet dish.While i was at it,i almost forgot to take a photo to tease you guys.I reached Isfahan from shiraz with no photo breaks as me and my single cylinder 390 cc partner were burning due to the immense heat on the way.I settled in Amir Kabir hostel which is economical,recommended and comes up with complimentary morning breakfast.

India to UK in 90 Days – Iran Chapter – Shiraz

I By:   I 5 months ago I   0 COMMENTS I   Iran I   , , , , With enough time spent for history and food which i was able to score during the evening times only,i moved towards Shiraz with slight diversion to Meybod to visit the mud castle ruins.I love castles,forts,history and beer. Wherever i go,i find myself indulged in either of those. Houses in small cities of Iran are made up of mud and unbaked brick.The mud and unbaked brick are the perfect resistance.In the cold season the absorbed temperature serve as an insulation which protect the inside air from being effected by the chilly winter desert climate.During hot season the absorbed temperature, mud and unbaked bricks strongly resist the incessant sun rays.

India to UK in 90 Days – Iran Chapter – Yazd

I By:   I 5 months ago I   0 COMMENTS I   Iran I   , , , , , As my bike gets released from the Bandar Abbas port,I run towards north as it was hot and humid as hell.Even for an Indian who lives through 40 degree Celsius in summers.North Iran is where most of the fun lies apart from the tourist cities Yazd,Shiraz and Esfahan which are must visit for the people who admire architecture as much as offroad trails. While i compare everything with my country,roads and infrastructure was pretty good.People were very welcoming and free water and food was a surprise where ever i stopped.Most of the Irani people still know India by Hindustan.First stop over was in Yazd, temperature was still high but manageable to some extent.I got myself into a hotel near Jame mosque so that i can easily slip and slide to the nearby tourist places.While i couldn't stick to my original agenda of the trip as alcohol is banned in Iran,i found so...

India to UK in 90 Days – Iran Chapter – Landing In Tehran

I By:   I 5 months ago I   0 COMMENTS I   Iran I   , , , , , As i landed in Tehran to kick start my 90 days roadtrip from Iran to UK,I was filled with excitement and slight fear of the unknown.It was Ramadan and the entire country was in fasting mood.As i steer through the streets during the day no food shops appeared to be open,it took some time for me to get used to it.Also water cannot be drank openly in the public,you have to find a corner to gulp few drops of H2O.It get's difficult to resist for other people if you do that in Public,so i would say that's fair enough :) My bike had already arrived in Bandar Abbas,but the agent advised that it will take a week or so to get it cleared from customs.Add few days more due to Ramadan Holidays.With no other choice left,i decided to backpack the major cities of Iran where tourist like me find refugee to go and admire the most happening places of all.While i was in Tehr...
