Day 1

From IKA airport to Damavand Camp 1

Early in the morning our guide will wait for us at the airport in Tehran (IKA airport). From the airport we will drive to the foot of Mount Damavand, where our Damavand trek will start. In Polour village we will obtain climbing permits and change car to off-road vehicle. We will continue driving to Gosfand Sara Camp, located at an altitude 3050 m.

Dinner and overnight stay in mountain shelter or tents.

Day 2

Climbing to Bargah Sevom Camp

Breakfast at the campsite. Then we pack our equipment, which mules will carry to Bargah Sevom Camp, located at an altitude 4200 m. After 4-5 hours we should reach the campsite. We will walk slowly to save our energy for a few more days.

Free afternoon. At the evening we will have dinner in the mountain shelter.

Overnight stay in tents or mountain shelter.

Day 3

Acclimatization on Mount Damavand

After breakfast at a shelter we will take our small backpacks and climb up till 4800-5000 m. There is no technical difficulty during this Damavand climbing, just can be steeper and colder than previous days. After acclimatization walk we will back to Bargah Sevom camp. There we will have dinner. Then we can rest and regenerate before Damavand summit push on the following day.

Day 4

Climbing to Damavand summit

Early morning, long before dawn, we will wake up, eat breakfast and we will start ascent to the Damavand top. Ascent can take 5-7 hours (depends on the weather condition and pace of the group). Still no technical difficulties, only sulphur gas escaping from mountain can make our Damavand trekking less pleasant.

When we reach the top of Damavand, we will have a break for taking photos. Afterwards we will start descent to the campsite at 4200 m.

Dinner and overnight stay at the Bargah Sevom Camp.

Day 5

Descent from Bargah Sevom camp and back to Tehran

We walk down to Polour village. On the way we can stop in Larijan, where famous thermal springs are. We can take a bath in hot mineral water to help our bodies forget about tiredness of the Damavand trek.

From Polour car will take us to Tehran, to the hotel.
