August 2016. I was in the new hut after Roodbarak, without guide or tour, and I was told that I had to pay a permit of 30$ or 1000000IRR to climb Alam kooh. After much discussion about this stupid discrimination (iranions pay NOTHING) and arguing about where was the money collected this way going to end, I paid under police calls threats.
My advice is, if you don't want to pay the fee, enter the valleys that lead to hesarchal (south slopes of alam kooh) or sarchal (to climb through the north face) without being seen, either very early in the morning when the guard sleeps or late in the night after 11pm. Be aware that if you come with your own car this means you are not going to be able to park inside the hut, as it is usual, but you can park after, even the path is not good and lots of goats and sheep will caress your car.
