fantastic place for resting and enjoy nature
Sep 2020
Valasht is a sweetwater lake and ofcourse a fantastic place for resting and enjoy nature, . the water is clear and you can see fish and frog babies obviously.
in some months of year you can go boat driving.
there are 2 way to this lake; one from Chaloos road( Marzan abad) and one from Kelardasht. try not to go from second one, because the road is full of stone and soil, and this way may make you uncomfortable.

Maybe the lake is not as lush as you thought.

Maybe the lake is not as lush as you thought.
But it is a pristine place and a quiet place.
Be careful about security.

Quiet, unknown, great scenery
Apr 2018 • Friends
the truth is Iranians choose the north of country very often as a destination, and it really gets crowded during their holidays. but this Valasht Lake is one of those places they don't know very well. so it is quiet and you can feel free to enjoy the scenery. it has a long way going up and down the mountains, of course with great scenery, and then at the bottom of the mountain you will reach this beauty.
I recommend it to hose who visit the north of Iran, not to those far away from it. if you visit Tehran, you can also pay a visit to the north.
Good Luck

wonder to recommend
Jun 2018 • Family
i draw at least around 30 minutes in a road without asphalt & road sign to reach to the lake . based on some local instructions, after around 10 minutes driving from Kelardasht we reached Kaleenoo ( the village which the lake road starts from the main and asphalt road) . too bad access road without any road sign , without any safety accessories like as guard rail ,... leads you to the Lake . after around 30 minuets driving in a sever condition you see the Lake . in respect to the slope of the road which is not standar and what i mentioned above visiting of the lake is not recommended in a rainy day or in the witer by no way . its a pretty small lake with numerous visitors in a hot day . there was no watch in the lake and whole area for the girls and boys who liked to spend time together ( which is not normal in my country ) . unfortunately there were only limited food services or facilities like as boating to enjoy your visit of the lake .
in my idea Valasht is not a must to do for foreigners but for the Iranians who are interested in nature it may be an enjoyable day tour ,.

Nice place to see if you want to go outside Tehran. the road and tunnels were good experiences. We rent a good home with relatively good price. we heared about even better homes with part of the beach included, where you can enjoy swimming with your family privately.

When I visited this place I was disappointed for sure. Plastic bags and poops right next to the water. It used to be nice.

NOT SAFE
Jun 2016
it is a beautiful point to visit but you can not find a clean and reliable food or drink, at winter is hard to get there without 4WD and at summer time is too hot specially for old people and children,there is no services like lifeguard or even a good parking for car, i don't offer specially for foreigners.

Amazing Place but needs to provide better roads
Jul 2016 • Family
This place is like heaven between mountains and really it was difficult to reach as we were family with small children those who got borring from the road specially it was mountain un asphalted roads which made it difficult but at the end when we reached the lake everything changed about thinking.

Very beutiful clean lake with few services available like boats, shops for tea and for snacks. unfortunatly, the people there shooting the prices very high and this was not acceptable at all.

at the returning road, please dont take the shortest way which is really short but very tough specially if you dont have 4WD car.

our driver (mini bus) tried to make the raise of the bus around 20 minutes and got to make it very difficulty.
