The difficulty of the hikes is medium to high, so if you are not an experienced hiker or do not know the surroundings very well, it is highly recommended to hire a local guide. It is also recommended for visitors to wear hiking boots and comfortable clothes as some of the surfaces can be slippery and uneven.

The Ghalat mountains are about 30 kilometres away from the city of Shiraz. After a long day of hiking, the small city of Ghalat is a nice place to relax and enjoy typical Iranian tea. The small town with quaint brick houses is very welcoming to tourists, and you can have breathtaking views of the mountains in the background. Spending the night can also be a nice option if you are looking to admire the clear night sky away from city light pollution.
