Standing 66 km north-east of capital,
Mount Damavand is visible from Tehran in clear weathers. Its 5671-m
peak is the highest point in the country. Also
the fact that mount Damavand is the highest volcano in Asia, puts
its name in the seven volcanic summits' list! So, scaling
Damavand is a must to realize your dream of summitting all highest
volcanoes of seven continents. If you wish to ascend this beautiful
and conic shape stratovolcano, we offer you the classic south
route as the most guaranteed way up to the peak.
South route is the most common route up Damavand. It is accessible
by some 2 or 3 hours drive from Tehran via Haraz road. Two camp
sites at 3000 m (Goosfand sara) and 4150 m (Bargah sevom) are
there in the route, where mules and porters will carry all of
your equipment up to 4150 m hut .
Starting from Tehran, we will follow the south route and spend enough
time for acclimatization to access the summit easily.
Also spending last day in Tehran will provide you a chance to explore the capital
in a brief tour.
