The road becomes dangerous because due the narrowness and the mountainous terrain. The road is difficult and it’s a nightmare in the wet or dark (or both). The surface of the road is asphalt, and chains or snow tyres can be required anytime. Approaching from Karaj to the south, the road initially leads through jagged cliffs, then on the north side of the range through endless old-growth beech forests that wolves, lynxes and bears all call home. Then, at last, the Caspian Sea appears on the horizon.
