Of all the traditional and unspoiled mountain villages in the Caspian Province of Gilan, Masulé (Masuleh) is the most breathtakingly beautiful. It's a cool 1050m (3444ft) above sea level and, formed by several irregular levels of terraced cream houses, appears to have grown out of its surroundings.
There are few facilities here, but Masuleh's inspired setting makes it worth the effort to get here. Masuleh is 56km (35mi) from Rasht, which is six hours north-west by bus from Tehran. From Rasht, take a succession of shared taxis or charter your own.
