However, the magnificent view of Damavand Peak is probably the most beautiful landscape of Lar Park. Damavand Peak with, its breathtaking nature, is also a preservation area close to the capital. Just like Damavand, the short distance of Lar Park from Tehran has turned it into a popular destination for tourists. It is only seventy kilometers from Tehran. Many Different species of animals inhabit Lar National Park. They include goats, rams, wild goats, sheep, brown bears, tigers, wild cats, and golden eagles. Brown trout is one of the rarest species of fish that can be found in the park. The vegetation of Lar Park, on the other hand, is unique. If you travel there during the end of the spring, you will find there covered with Poppies and wildflowers. The

flower-covered plain, with mountains in the back, creates amazing views. One of the best views of the highest peaks of Iran can be seen from Lar Park.

The dam itself is not a part of the park and has turned into one of the promenade sites in recent years.
