Ascending Gishar-Kuh Peak

Gishar-Kuh Peak View

Gishar-Kuh (1350m) is a conical peak spreading like a velvet corrugated skirt against the backdrop of Ghasem-Abad. Standing on top of the mountain provides a perfect view of the sea shore, all the way from Kelachay to Ramsar.

The name “Gishar” refers to the similarity between the mountain and the long Ghasem-Abadi skirts. The girls who wore these skirts were called “Gishe” in local language.

The duration of Gishar-Kuh trekking is 9 hours. Moving from Gileboom, the first stop is in Chale-Sara where we take a short rest. Rural cottages and natural springs are scattered along the way from Chale-Sara to Fin-Deh. Walking eastward on the ridge along a meandering path we reach a subsidiary peak first and then Gishar-Kuh peak. The slope eventually gets steeper from Fin-Deh to the peak. The weather is usually foggy in the spring and autumn. Mesmerizing moss-covered trees, humped cows and wild brown and white mushrooms are some attractions of the trek. The peak is conical in shape and is covered with beautiful tall trees.
