Hey there. There is no direct connection, so you'd need to take a car or bus to Rasht, and from there maybe find a driver or bus. Masouleh is prettty isolated so better off going in the afternoon, staying until the evening... More

I agree, it is like mission impossile ;-) You have to omit some cities because you are on the roads so many hours and you cannot enjoy your destinations. Qazvin,Rasht and Anzali in 1 day?? Bam and Kerman in 1 day?? Sanandaj Kermanshah and Hamadan?? You should omit atleast 2-3 cities. Hossein

Hi there is no direct bus from Kashan to Masule, you should go to Tehran from Kashan and from there go to Rasht and then to Masule, the taxi from central Tehran to Masule if you hire it completely will cost you about 50~80 dollars(you see great difference and you should bargain!) and the time will be 4:30~6 hours in a normal traffic with a short rest.
