Filband, a village hidden in clouds

Filband, a village in north of Iran in Mazandaran province, is all in clouds! It is so cold most of the times that nobody would live there, except when the weather gets warmer during spring and summer. I took a visit there two years ago, just the same time as now (Facebook reminded me that!). So I thought it might be good sharing what I experienced there in beautiful village of Filband.

Welcome to Filband

It is not that easy reaching to Filband. Road is not flat and straight, and you need to make sure you have a good car to take you there. There are some tours available that can take you there and return back in a day for a reasonable price. So it is wise to try those tours. Filband is cold most of times, so make sure bring warm cloth.

Walk around and enjoy! If you are lucky, you can experience different situation. For me, I could just lost in clouds, and also see village from above, surrounding by beautiful clouds. Perhaps you should bring your own food and drinks, cause it is most unlikely you find a shop to buy things (There are shops around, but they might be close). There is a prayers area available as well, where you can fill up your water bottle for rest of your journey. Locals say this water has some medical benefits and can enhance your bones!
