Route Description

Please refer to the Detailed Map of Central Alborz for the below discussion. Having the 1:50 000 map (See the “Maps” section of Introduction to Central Alborz) can add much more detail. You will need Sheet “6362 II Baladeh” for Lehra Saddle and Sheet “6462 III Nomar” for the Lehra Peaks & the Nomar Village.


All distances are per my GPS.

The village of Nomar is also known as Nomarostagh.


At the village of Nomar (2150 m), the stream splits. The W/NW branch goes up the slopes of the 3888 m Nazer Peak. The Southwestern branch is known as Daryook. A 4WD road follows the Daryook branch 3.5 Km to end at a place where a foot bridge crosses the stream. Hike or drive this road and then cross to the left (southeastern) side of the stream. Follow the trail less than 2 kilometers to reach a flat grassy plateau known as “Daryook Plain” (2350 m) where the stream makes many branches. The western branch is known as “Paniri” River and goes toward the Shekar Leghas Peak. You will need to follow the southern branch and will have to cross the branch to its west side. This can be done fairly easily but will get you wet above your knees.

Follow the well-established trail to a place called “Chehel Cheshmeh” (2800 m) where water pours down the side of the mountain onto the trail. At around 2950 m you will reach another relatively flat area. Kaoon Peak will be directly in front of you to the west and the Lehra Peaks will be visible as rocky summits to the south. Lehra Pass sits between the Kaoon and Lehra Peaks. Do not mistake the other saddle between Kaoon and Siyaroo Peaks for Lehra Saddle. Follow the trail to reach the 3650 m Lehra Saddle where Dokhaharan and its neighbors come into view.

From Lehra Saddle you can follow any path up the southern slopes of the Lehra Peaks to access their summits.
