Damavand Acclimatization

The Official Website of The Mt Damawand Guides Iran

Acclimatization Mount Damawand Iran

In general terms 5 days program is quite good and gives you enough time to acclimate for Mount Damavand Iran. But it is possible to discuss more about itinerary when we know more details about arrival to Iran and the arrival time to the first camp, ie if you arrive to Camp1 Polour late in the afternoon, you may need one extra day for acclimatization at this camp.
See also Q&A about Damavand Acclimatization in our Forum and Damavand Weather Forcast.

Important Note

We do not recommend to use Camp1 Reyneh as a starting point and Camp2 Base for acclimatization or accommodation any more especially in summer season.

Q- What kind of acclimatisation do you recommend for climbing Mt Damavand?
A- It is mainly dependent to your mountaineering experience at high altitude, training and physical fitness. Generally speaking for ordinarily mountaineers, sleeping one nigh at Camp1 Polour 2250m and one night at Camp3 Bargah Sevom 4250 could be good enough to attempt the peak 5671m. But if you are not quite sure about your adaptation to the high altitude, you may consider the second night rest at camp3 before the summit push.

Q- How much acclimatisation do we need to climb Damavand Iran?
A- Before we could talk in details about the amount of required time for your acclimatisation, we need some information about your team and your physical fitness such as:

What kind of mountains and what altitude have you climbed so far?
- When was your last successful attempt?
- Where and at what elevation above sea level do you live?
- Do you have any extra weight?
- Do you have any kind of sickness?
- How old are you?
- Do you have any daily/weekly training?
Please give any information which you think might be helpful in this regard.

Q- I am unfamiliar with the acclimatization needed for Damawand?
A- Could you give us some info about your physical fitness and climbing experience? If possible we recommend climbing mountains upto 4000 meters height and sleeping few nights there before trying Damawand..

Q- Is it true that “the faster you ascend the less chance the body has to acclimatize”?
A- Yes it is quite true, we usually suggest to ascend slowly.

Q- In a private tour package for Damavand and in a specified itinerary, in case we need an extra day for acclimatization, is it possible to arrange it?
A- No problem, we are flexible for extra days for acclimatization and bad weather.

Q- Would it be better to stay an extra day in Camp3 Bargah Sevom New Hut for more time to acclimatise?
A- If you feel that you need more time to adapt to the new environment; yes it is a good idea.

On the first day of our trip to Damavand Camp1 Polour and for better acclimatization, is it possible to have an easy trek to 3.000 m.a.s.l from the Camp1 Polour Hut?
If you are traveling from your country directly to the first camp, because you are tired and also due to jet lag, you need rest and sleep till about 11 am to 12 noon local time. You may have some easy trek after launch, do not make yourself too tired.

Q- Do you recommend any alternative program to acclimatize on another mountains prior to Damavand for one week duration?
A- Yes we may suggest different and more relaxing itinerary for more acclimatisation.

Q- Can you recommend any peaks close to the resort that we could do as daytrips?
(I’m planning a ski ascent of Mt Damavand, and I’m thinking that a good start would be to go to Dizin first for a couple of days skiing at the resort. Also I’m thinking that there might be some nice mountains very close to Dizin ski resort that we might start with just to get a little bit more acclimatization before Mount Damavand).
A- For acclimatization in other ski resorts around Tehran before attempting Mt Damavand pls visit Iran Ski Resorts.
