MOUNT DAMAVAND TOUR – 8 DAYS

MOUNT DAMAVAND TOUR – 8 DAYS

About the tour

EXPEDITION TO DAMAVAND is intended for all those who want to conquer the highest peak in Iran – 5,610 m above sea level, and at the same time the highest peak in the Middle East. The expedition lasts 8 days, and the stay in the mountains itself – 5 days. The expedition requires average physical condition because we enter the camp without a load. Some of the luggage is carried by horses. However, we invite active people to this trekking, for whom several hours of hiking and (even!) a summit attack lasting several hours (over 1,400 meters up and over 1,400 meters down) will not be a problem.

The difficulty on this volcano is a smelly sulphur cloud floating around. The Damavand tour program includes a reserve day in case of bad weather. When you don’t need this day on the 5,000-meter peak, there will be time for an optional trip.
