Before attempting Damavand,the highest volcano in Asia, and the highest summit in the Middle East and the second highest volcano in the northern hemisphere, you should know all the necessary Information for ascending this mountain. Dear mountaineers have to be careful about a few tips: 1. acclimatization 2.Climb to summit at 5-6 AM during June - August 3.Because of sulfur gas at peak, have a vinegar mask with you 4. Get someone to guide you during your attempt 5. Honey and lemon drink can help you to be fresh and energetic while climbing 6. Keep your cam/cell phone warm to avoid discharging 7. Finally, have necessary gears.

Hi, I'm interested in a winter ascent on Damavand (end of March/beginning of April). I'd like to get in touch with local climbers for more information
Of course you've read about Damavand ascending. I want to add a few important notes. First, Try to ascend to Damavand from 3rd base, Bargah Sevvom, at 5- 6 AM then try not to have a large breakfast next, taking honey and lemon drink with you can give you enough energy and avoid you from hurting sulfur gas on top. At last, keep your cam or cellphone warm not to have the batteries discharged.
Faithfully Yours. Enjoy climbing.
Hello, Damavand is the highest peak of my country. It is very interesting to climb it. The best way to climb is a 3-day program. You had better reach the peak before noon because of gases containing sulphur. It is really a giant in comparison with other mountains. The normal route to climb is southern route starting from a place named in Farsi Goosfandsara.
Hello to all mountaineers.
This the highest mount in Iran and you can reach itt from Tehran. Amol road and after Abali zone you reach Polor, then when you sea the statue of a climber that's the way to turn. It continues without asphalt to Gosfand Sara, the base camp of Damavand with 3150 meters elevation. From there to another Camp Bargah 3, you should normally take 5 hours to climb. Then you are at 4150 meters elevation. With a suggestion for a rest; I think its better to camp there and go for the peak. Next morning, with 4.5 hour climb, you're on top of Iran.
Go for it
We are welcoming you buddies.
