Damavand Ascend Tour South Route
9 Days & 8 Nights
This is a C Grade Damavand mountain climbing trip ( south route ). we can also shorten this package for those who wish to climb just Damavand in 4 Days.With this tour, we offer you not just a volcano but an emblematic volcano – perfect cone shape, beautiful, mighty, majestic – Damavand!
With its 5671 m. it is not only the highest peak in Iran, but also the highest volcano in Asia! Climbing a volcano is much more exiting than climbing a peak. Shrouded in myths and legends, volcanoes have always been subject of admiration and fear. Swarming up the steep lava slopes, making your way through sulfur vapors and mineral springs, glaciers and iced waterfalls towards the gurgling crater, which gives out heavy smokes, one boldly enters the territory of gods and nature’s elements with devastating might.
