    I tried to climb Damavand peak in 29-30 July 2023 with two friends.
    But in 4650 m I had some notification from our leader about the level of my blood oxygen and unfortunately I had to come back to Bargahe 3.

    I am so happy to say that my friend had a successful climb to the highest peak in Middle East "Beautiful Damavand"
    I wish in near future have success to climb to this Peak also to other people who have a wish like this.

    دوستان سلام
    ما سوم مرداد ماه سال گذشته 99 شب بارگاه سوم دماوند خوابیدیم که صبح زود بریم قله و آهسته آهسته شب باران شروع شد وگفتیم خوب اشکالی نداره و باران مسئله ای نیست اما صبح تا بلند شدیم وهوا کمی روشن شد دیدیم که برف اومده و مشخص شد که از حدود صد متر بالاتر کاملا سفید پوش شده و مه سنگین و خلاصه با امکانات معمولی عملا صعود بسیار مشکل یا ناممکن بود
    همنوردان عزیز آب و هوای دماوند بسیار متغیره ومیتواند یک روز گرم آفتابی در ارتفاعات به هوای سرد و برف و بورانی و طاقت فرسا و خطرناک تبدیل شود
    همیشه همه امکانات ضروری را با خود بهمراه داشته باشید

    شاد و موفق باشید
    بهروز هاشمیان

    Hello friends

    We slept on the 3rd of August last year, in the third camp of Damavand, to go to the summit early in the morning, and slowly the night started to rain, and we said that it was okay and the rain was not a problem, but when we got up in the morning, from about one hundred meters above, it was completely covered with thick fog, in short, with normal facilities, it was practically very difficult or impossible to climb.
    Dear fellow travelers, the climate of Damavand is very changeable and a hot sunny day in the highlands can turn into cold, snow, stormy, exhausting and dangerous weather.
    Always have all the necessary equipment with you

    Be happy and successful
    Behrooz Hashemian

    Good evening Nasir,

    We are planing to reach the Damavand mid of May 2017
    Is it possible to reach the top Of Damavand in May without crampons?

    Is it credible to go from Teheran- Berga Camp 3 in one day, of then your advice is to reach Goosfan Sara from Tehran 1rst day-Goosfan-Berga on second day et last day for the final ascent?

    Do you recommend some contact with local guide?

    Thanks in advance for your answer!

    How To Climb Damavand from the north rout?
    This is ideal for ordinary mountaineers with ordinary climbing skills and common gears during Jun and July and suitable weather condition, where there is little snow on the mountain and the weather is relatively mild.
    Damavand Itinerary from the north rout
    Day 1: Transfer from your hotel in Tehran to Nandal Resort ,drive away from tunnel 7 and 8 Haraz road -20 km away from Haraz road .
    Day 2: Take cars from Nandal to Sang Bozorg-meaning the big stone- by Mr Hamid Salehi 09119147065 and take a horse by horse man-mr Majid Ghorbannezhad-to camp 1 at 4000 altitude,after a short rest climb to camp 2 at 5000 altitude and Acclimatise.

    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.

    Dear Mountaineers;
    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.

    Dear all Visitors,

    Mount DAMAVAND is the highest peak of Iran; we call it “The Roof of Iran”. There are 4 normal routes to climb Damavand:
    1-South route
    2-Northern east route
    3-West route
    4-North route

    The easiest route to access the peak is the “south route”.
    If you need more information please don’t hesitate to send me an email.

    Best Regards
    Erfan Fekri
