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.

Scaling Damavand from south route is not a technical climb. It just needs good health and stamina as well as ability to trek in altitudes.
