Climbing Mt. Damavand (5671m) 3-4 days


Climb the Pearl of Persia, highest point of Middle East, one of Volcanic Seven Summits...


Itinerary (can be customized based on your request):

Day 1: Tehran to Southern Face of Damavand
Drive to Damavand south face second camp (Goosfand Sara) at 3000 m and trek up to third camp (Bargah Sevom) 4150m. (Total Walking Approx 5 hours. Ascent 1250m. ) dinner and overnight.

Day 2: Acclimatization day (optional)
Today has been set aside to help acclimatize prior to tomorrow’s attempt at the summit. You may choose to just relax around the camp and enjoy the expansive views, or you might like to take a walk to the nearby Abshar-e-Yakhi Waterfall. Located at some 5000m, the falls are reachable along the southern route to the summit and present a permanently frozen 7 meters high cascade, that even during the summer months fails to melt (due in no small part to the icy winds that whip across the mountain). Dinner and overnight.

Day 3: Summit Day! Hike to summit (5671m), then return to third camp
Today presents us with our most challenging day, as we attempt the climb to the summit. Starting early we hike up to the beginning of the ridge, before continuing on to the icefall located at some 5150m. The terrain is difficult, with loose rocks and scree and the weather can change at any time, so please be prepared for anything, even snowfalls in the height of summer. Some 500m below the summit we come across the aptly named ‘Sulphur Hill’ (Dood Kooh), where we can see the evidence of the mountain’s turbulent pass amongst the volcanic rock and sulphurous fumaroles rising up from the earth. Making the final ascent to the top we hope to reach the summit around midday, affording us an opportunity to enjoy something of the breathtaking views before the clouds cover the peaks (conditions permitting). From here we then begin the descent back down to our camp at third camp, a journey of some 3 hours that should bring us back to camp in time for dinner. Total Walking Approx 9 hours. Ascent/descent 1521m. Dinner and overnight.

Day 4: Descend mountain and drive back to Tehran
Descending back down to second camp (Goosfand Sara) this morning, we then rejoin our 4WD vehicle for the drive back to Polour, from where we continue back to Tehran. Stopping for lunch en route we aim to arrive back in Tehran late this afternoon. Total Walking Approx 5 hours. Descent 1250m.

Gears: You will be provided with a list of required gears.
