How to Get to Dizin Ski Resort?
There are two ways to go to Dizin: the lower road through Karaj which is about 124 km and takes about 2.30 hours but it is the safest way and the upper road to pass through Shemshak resort directly to Dizin which is the shorter road about 72 km but as this road is very steep sometimes it is closed due to heavy snow. So first of all we highly recommended to go with the tour, another option is to take a taxi (always available). The tird option is to go by early morning bus which leaves Tehran around 5.00 AM and goes there from the shorter road.
