This year Nowrooz falls on March 21. I read in LP that 10 days around this date should be avoided as most tourist facilities like transport and hotels are overcrowded and more expensive. Apparently a very bad time to travel. What exact would be the dates to avoid?

like u said, 21 march. 21 march + 10 days = 31 march. i was in iran during this time. it was a bad time. u really get nothing done. in fact u get stuck in iran during NoRuz. look at this link, they are counting down.

In total agreement with wouterr........ avoid it like the plague! Its is difficult to find hotels, roads are busy, everywhere you want to visit is packed and NOTHING gets done at all!

Go in April!

Enjoy though, its fab!
