Description:

Alamut Castle is a spectacular four hour’s drive through the mountains from Qazvin and located near the village of Gazorkhan. The trail up to Alamut is quite hard, but the views from the fortress are quite something. Archaeologists have restored the castle, and there are interpretive signs in both English and Farsi. Alamut Castle was initially built in the ninth century at an elevation over 6,800 feet. It was constructed in such a way that it only had one accessible entrance that wound its way around the cliff, making the fortress challenging to conquer. But in 1090 A.D., a man named Hassan-i Sabbah was able to do just that.
