Road 77, also known as the Haraz Road, is one of the most important roads from Tehran to the northern mountains of Iran, and the Iranian coast on the southern Caspian Sea.

Route[edit]

The road's route travels through Tehran Province and Mazandaran Province. It crosses the Alborz mountain range and then descends northwards down the Haraz River Valley.

The road is the shortest route from Tehran to the north ( 180 km) and in recent years some parts of the road has been widened and the safety has been improved. It passes through the towns of Amol and Rudehen.

Features[edit]

Haraz Road is the nearest road to Mount Damavand, the highest peak in Iran and Middle East.

Lar National Park, which Mount Damavand is within, is easily accessible from Road 77.
