Climbing Damavand, considering other climbing tours you have had so far, will be an exhilarating experience. Climbing the highest volcanic mountain in the Middle East will be something you will never forget. Damavand is basically a walk-up, so we recommend preventing altitude sickness (such as dizziness, headaches, nausea, and swollen fingers), and it's best to climb Damavand not so quickly. If you're up for experiencing more adventures by Climbing Damavand Mountain in 7 days, keep up with Iran Adventure Tours.

Damavand is not considered a technical peak, except for 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 many people on the route, and this path also has more suitable shelters offering mules to carry your bags to the last shelter. The most significant thing you'll need to climb Damavand is motivation and physical fitness. We suggest you only start with one or two climbs above 4,000 meters before climbing Damavand. For example, the Tochal peak would be an excellent start for preparing beforehand.

When you reach the third shelter, there is some breathtaking scenery before your eyes. So don't forget to bring your photography equipment to capture these magnificent sights and moments of a memorable adventure. On your left will be Lar Dam Lake, a light blue glistering scenery, a sea of clouds beneath your feet, the shadow of Damavand Mountain on the ground, and the dreamiest of all, the highest waterfall in Asia. Believe it or not, this waterfall is known as an Ice waterfall. In general, the temperature in this area reaches above zero for only a few hours at noon, even during summertime, and then only a little water flows and then freezes again. At last, reaching the peak, you can see the mesmerizing scene of the Caspian Sea and the northern forests of Iran.

What better way to finish your adventure than a splash around in a swim-friendly waterfall. This is literally the best way to overcome your exhaustion after long hours of climbing. Descending the Damavand Mountain while crossing the vast green Lar plain and visiting the wonderful waterfall is the sweetest memory that you can live through. You will be delighted by the sense of accomplishment you achieve after a long, challenging trek by the end of the 7 days of Climbing Damavand Mountain on the Iran Adventure Tour.
