Hediyeh Raissi: "This time, our pursuit isn't for mere escape or survival; it is an expedition to rediscover the profound bond with the soul of the mountains."

Discovering the allure of tradition and sustainability woven into every corner of this ancient cave-turned-hotel! Embracing the essence of environmental activism and the artistic touch of hurufiyya, this space blends villagecore charm with interactive experiences. The rich hues of red and black carpets contrast beautifully against earthy tones of light brown and green, echoing eco-friendly craftsmanship. Transporting guests to a serene Danube School ambiance, this unique abode merges history with modernity, offering a one-of-a-kind stay.

The name "Peak Houshang" has its roots in Persian culture. "Houshang" refers to an ancient Persian king, part of the mythological history in Iran, particularly associated with the Pishdadian dynasty. Houshang is considered the grandfather of Keyumars, the first human in Iranian mythology, and is known for his wisdom and strength. The term "Peak" refers to the summit or topmost point, and when combined with "Houshang," it symbolizes an elevated or prominent position associated with the name of this legendary figure from Persian lore.
