Or it’s better to ask, where is Dizin at first? Dizin is a place in Karaj city, Alborz province where is one of the most important ski resort in the middle east which turned this place to a popular place in the world. This resort is placed in distance of 74 kilometers to Karaj city. If we want to tell you more accurate, it’s located on 123 kilometers of Tehran-Chalus Road.

Dizin ski resort is one of those places that prove you shouldn’t wait for spring and summer to have fun but it’s possible to be in autumn and winter and enjoy or be happy.
If you get away from Tehran only several kilometers you can’t get back any more. You can take the path to Dizin and get to some where white covered which for us, town residents who in best situation can see, fewer than one hand’s fingers snow in town, can be a very delightful place.
If the path of Shemshak-Dizin would be opened the way is half but most of the time it’s close because of the heavy snow falling on the road. So we introduce you the second and more functional path. You should take the Babaie Highway and then northern Lashkarak and turn to Fasham in Qushak dilemma.
