Mount Damavand in Winter

In winter season snow covers Damavand and the summit is snow-capped several months a year. But  in spring and autumn only the upper parts are white. Ice and snow remain on Damavand Glaciers on the north face all the year. This magnificent mountain is an excellent symmetrical cone volcano with a narrow summit. It looks like Mount Fuji (Fujiyama) in Japan. Damavand Mountain is located about 80 kilometers driving distance north-east of Tehran in the northern Persian plateau. This giant white summit and its beautiful cloud cap are the most fascinating sight of Iran mountains.

Shirpala is the name of a famous shelter in Alborz chain Mountain in the north part of Tehran. In the way to its summit, Tochal, you can see this shelter. Tochal has snowcap in most of the year.
In 1960, the Iranian Mountain Climbing Federation with the help of Boy Scout Association made this complicated multi-task shelter located in the height of 2750 meters. It has different facilities such as restaurants, snack bars and cubicles.
From Darband square there are two access roads to Shirpala, Passghale village (it means the way to a castle from behind the castle) and Abshar doghloo (it means a twin waterfall). The waterfall starts 50 meters below the shelter and it is so beautiful especially during the spring.

Shirpala Camp Photo Gallery by Jafar Sepehri

Passghale is the main route to many shelters, Tochal, Shirpala, Osun, Shervin and SpidKamar, all located in the mountains of north of Tehran. Different types of delicious breads are made in Passghale, especially the one which has milk, saffron, honey, dates, walnut and coconut mixed in its dough, and sesame seeds on its top.
The village has 3000 years history. During the excavations, there were found clay pots, coins, ornaments, jewels and many ancient memorials. Native people named the place ShahMiran castle.
Nowadays you can see ancient tombs there which their ages go back before Islam, which might belong to the Mithraism era. There was also a sculpture from Parthian (Ashkanian) dynasty. In the Second World War, Russian army occupied and destroyed the castle and the sculpture, and moved everything they found to Russia. About forty years ago the remaining part of the castle is replaced by a telesiage.
In ancient Iranian myth, Shirpalla and Passghale were places of the lord KeyGhobad (king Kovat). He became the emperor of Iran, king of the kings with the help of Rostam (the greatest Iranian hero).
Before Islam this area belonged to Mehran tribe which was one of the seventh most important families in the ancient Iran.

زبر کوه بودش کمینگاه شیر ----- پلا را بيافزوده مرد دلير
پلا را ز گوینده پهلوان ---- ---- کمینگاه شیران بسیار دان

شیرپلا نام یک پناهگاه کوهستانی در البرز مرکزی و شمال تهران است. این پناهگاه در سال 1339 و در ارتفاع 2750 متری از سطح دریا، و در راه اصلی قله توچال، ساخته شده است. این پناهگاه دارای امکاناتی همچون خوابگاه با ظرفیت 150 نفر ، لوله‌کشی آب، سرویس بهداشتی، برق، ، ناهارخوری و بوفه است. مسیرهای دستیابی به آن از سربند، روستای پس‌قلعه و آبشاردوقلو می‌گذرد. نیمه دوم راه توسط کابل، نرده، پله‌های فلزی و نردبان ایمن گشته است. مدت زمان صعود به آن بر حسب حرکت میانگین، در تابستان سه ساعت و از شیرپلا تا قله توچال معمولاً چهار ساعت راه است و جان‌پناه سنگ‌سیاه (امیری) در نیمه‌های راه قرار دارد.
آبشاردوقلو در ارتفاع ۲۷۰۰ متری از سطح دریا، از ذوب برف‌های رشته کوه البرز شکل می‌گیرد که در زیر پناهگاه شیرپلا در مسیر کوهستانی توچال قرار دارد. نام آن به دلیل دو شاخه شدن آبشار هنگام ریزش از ارتفاع است‌. ارتفاع تقریبی این آبشار، ۲۰ متر است‌. در سرمای زمستان که این آبشار یخ می‌زند، منظره‌ای چشم‌نواز و بی‌مانند به وجود می‌آورد که جز با دیدن، درک این همه زیبایی ممکن نیست. کمی بالاتر از آن و نزدیک به شیرپلا، آبشار پسنگ قرار دارد.
این مسیر در چهار فصل بسیار زیباست. تازه برگ‌های بهاری، خنکای تابستانی، رنگ‌های گوناگون پاییزی و برف سپید و یکدست زمستانی آن هرکدام بیش از دیگری روح‌نواز، دل‌انگیز و چشم‌گیر است. دهكده باستانی پس‌قلعه، با پيشينه‌ای بس کهن، در انتهاي منطقه ييلاقي سربند و دربند در دو كيلومتري شميران قرار گرفته است . اين دهكده، از سمت شرق به كوه‌هاي امامزاده قاسم (ع) ، و از غرب به كوه‌هاي دركه ، از سمت شمال به قله توچال و از جنوب به سربند و دربند محدود می‌شود. روستای کوهستانی پس‌قلعه مسیر اصلی پناه‌گاه‌ها، جان‌پناه‌ها، و دیدنی‌های کوهستان شمال تهران مانند شیرپلا، توچال، اسپیدکمر، شروین، اسون، آبشارسوتک و ... است که هرکدام گفتار جداگانه خود را می‌طلبند.‌ پیشینه اين دهكده زیبا به پيش از دوران اسلامی مي‌رسد. نشانه‌هاي برجای مانده از تمدن كهن ایرانی در پیرامون دهكده گواه روشن بر اين ادعا است. سفالینه‌های یافت شده در حفاری‌ها، آرامگاه‌های باستانی پیش از اسلام در انتهاي آبادي به طرف بند يخچال در كنار چنار قديمي، آثار تا چندی پیش باقي مانده در مكان کنونی تله‌سي‌يژ از محل شاه‌نشين قصر شاه‌ميران، از پادشاهان ايرانی پس از اسلام، و نام‌ها و پسوندهایی مانند شيرزادخان، شيردره‌اي، دیزگران، داراب و … كه بر اماكن پیرامون دهكده نهاده شده است تاريخ باستاني اين روستا را به ژرفای تاریخ کهن ایران‌زمین و دوران اساطیری مي‌رساند .
به گفته اهالي دهكده ، در ارتفاعات كوه پس‌قلعه سنگ، مکان کنونی ايستگاه تله‌سیژ، کتیبه‌اي وجود داشته بوده كه روس‌ها در زمان جنگ جهاني دوم متن آن را كه به زبان پهلوی اشکانی بوده ترجمه كردند سپس بخش‌هایی از آن را که سالم مانده بود با خود بردند. همچنین ایشان از وحشی‌گری روس‌ها نسبت به اهالی بی‌دفاع و همچنین ویران نمودن بازمانده‌های دژ پس‌قلعه جهت دستیابی به گنجینه‌ای افسانه‌ای، روایت‌های زیادی در سینه دارند. ريش سفيدان دهكده مي‌گويند : كيقباد نخستین پادشاه کیانی كه رستم ، جهان پهلوان بزرگ ايران تاج سلطنتي را بر سر او گذاشت و او را پادشاه ايران خواند در بند‌شاه‌نشين پس‌قلعه مي‌زيسته است.
