The Northern Route

Damavand Trekking Tours

At the north foothills of Mt Damavend, 120 km from Tehran, lies the village of Nandal. A few kilometeres further than this village we start our north face ascent of Mt Damavend at the altitude of 2900 m. On the north face we have two shelters at 4000 m and 4800 m. The last one is the highest shelter in Mt Damavend. So our acclimatization on this face progresses between these shelters. The north route is a little colder than the south route, because adjoin to Dobisel and Sioleh glacier. The north face is also steeper and less crowded than southern. So, if you want to enjoy a calm and quiet atmosphere in the mountain, we recommend you this route.

The Southern Route

The southern route is the most common route up Mount Damavend. It is accessible by some 2 or 3 hours drive from Tehran via Haraz road. Two camp sites at 3000 m (Goosfandsara) and 4150 m (Bargah Sevom) are there in the route. Starting from Tehran, we will stay one night in Goosfandsara Camp and another night in Bargah Sevom Camp. Also we will stay another day above 4000 m for acclimatization before summit push. We recommend the southern route as the easiest and most guaranteed route up to the peak.
