Climbing Damavand, the highest volcanic mountain of the Middle East, with 5610 m height will be unforgettable for you among other climbing tours you have had so far. Damavand is basically a walk-up, so, It is recommended that in order to prevent altitude sickness (such as dizziness, headaches, nausea, and swollen fingers) it is best to climb Damavand not so quickly. Added to this technical aspect, is the fact that Climbing Damavand in 7 Days let you experience more adventures. 

Damavand is not considered as a technical peak, of course, except the northern slope route; it is more exhausting than technical. For example, its eastern slope is a very long route. The easiest and shortest route is the southern slope of the peak. There are often a lot of people on the route, it has suitable shelters offering mule to carry your bags to the last shelter.

The most significant thing you'll need to climb Damavand is motivation and physical fitness. We highly recommend that you start with one or two climbs above 4,000 meters before climbing Damavand. For example, the Tochal peak would be very suitable for preparing to go to Damavand.

When you reach the third shelter, there is some breathtaking sceneries in front of you: Lar Dam Lake on the left, a sea of clouds under your feet, the shadow of Damavand Mountain on the ground, and the most beautiful, the highest waterfall in Asia. A waterfall is known as the Ice waterfall. It is not more than ten meters high, but it is located at an altitude of five thousand meters. In general, the temperature in that area, even in summer, reaches above zero for only a few hours at noon, and a little water flows and then freezes again. And finally, reaching the peak, you can see the amazing scene of the Caspian Sea and northern forests of Iran.

Descending the mountain while crossing the amazing Lar plain and visiting the wonderful waterfall is truly captivating. As an adventurer, you would probably like to go for a swim in a swim-friendly waterfall and overcome your exhaustion after long hours of climbing.
