In the morning we left Masuleh to head to Rudkhan Castle.
Rudkhan Castle is in the province of Gilan. Visiting the castle involves a very steep hike up the mountain. We were told by our guide that there are about 1,000 steps each way of the hike. It definitely was not easy but the view made it worth the traitorous hike. We started the hike at 8am therefore we were able to beat the crowd and the sun. I definitely recommend an early start.
On the way down we stopped by the local merchants that were selling delicious local tea and sweets.
It was definitely a major workout but totally worth it!
