Which VPN ?

Whilst travelling in Iran you may need to use a VPN to access your Facebook, Twitter or Telegram etc.

Los 5 volcanes de Irán

Hay 5 cumbres volcánicas en Irán: Bazmán, Damavand, Sabalán, Sahand y Taftán. Todos estos volcanes tienen rutas de trekking y puedo organizar o guiar expediciones a todos ellos. Todos son estratovolcanes y están inactivos o extintos. 1. El Kuh-i-Bazmán se encuentra en la parte sureste de Irán, en la provincia de Sistán y Baluchestán. Tiene unos 3.490 metros de altura y se encuentra a 40 km al noroeste la ciudad de Bazmán (la ciudad grande más cercana es Iranshahr, al sur). La cumbre tiene un cráter de 500 metros de ancho y 150 metros de profundidad.
Es el punto de montaña menos accesible de Irán. Recibe fuertes nevadas en invierno. El área está habitada por nómadas baluchis que viven en negras tiendas de campaña.

This is a mistake as the banks will buy your foreign currency at a much lower state rate but will never sell you hard currency at that rate if you are left with the fast devaluing Iranian Rial, in fact the banks never sell hard currencies to anyone let alone foreigners so you lose out if you go to a bank! There are official bureau de changes where you can sell ( and only sometimes buy) your currency at the market rate. You can find them in most city centers as well as international airports. You do not need Iranian Rials to enter Iran, USD and Euros are readily exchangeable in Iran.
Update March 2020

The currency situation is very unstable at the moment. The US dollar has gone up from 42000 Rials to 1 USD in Spring 2019 to over 150000 Rials per 1 USD ( the euro being around 170.000 Rials per 1 euros at the time of this going to the press!!)

The advice is to exchange little by little.

Banks have resumed buying and selling currencies. T…
