Mount Damavand is a stratovolcano and the highest summit of Iran whose last eruption was 5350 BCE.
This summit is generally trekked via the southern route starting from Goosfandsara (2900 m) and nights in Bargah Sevom refuge (4200 m), where good logistical support exists in the high season between June until October.
The north eastern and northern routes are less crowded and are ascended via Nandal or any other village close by.
If you want something exceptional you should try the 11-12 day trek through Laar National Park all the way to the summit of Damavand. For details please drop us a line. We would like to keep it pristine and un-crowded!
