Damavand Camp 2 Base Refuge

The Official Website of the Mount Damavand Guides

Damavand Campsites - Base Camp Shelter

Also called Base Camp, Goosfand Sar (sheepfold) or Modque

Base camp is a mountain camping site located at altitude 3040 masl and is the summer starting point for trekking to Damavand Summit. In this area there is a small mountain shelter or refuge, a mosque called Saheb Zaman (or Saheb al Zaman) and a sheepfold!

In summer and climbing season, strong cars like 4WD Jeeps and land rovers transfer climbers and their equipments to this campsite. It is possible to find some water, food and drink here, but it is recommend to bring and use your own staff and also you may find mule and porter to carry your equipments to the last campsite called Camp3 Bargah Sevom.

Important Note
This campsite is not a suitable place for accommodation and acclimatization in summer and crowded climbing season because it is too crowded, noisy and too dirty, it is full of people, cars... See Also Warning.

Due to heavy snowfall in winter the gravel road is blocked and cars can not reach this place, so the starting point in winter is gravel road junction (GPS Landmark No5) or somewhere closed to that point. Remeber in cold seasons this area is almost remote and resticted, so it is not crowded and you may use the shelter/refuge or the mosque. More in Damawand Camp2 Base FAQ.

How to go to Camp2 Base

From the first Camp either Polour or Reyneh> Transfer by Car>Camp2 Base.
If you are going to start and leave the camp1 early morning, it is suggested to book a car in advance the day before your kick off. It usually takes about one hour to the area by car.

For camp1 Polour or Reyneh you can ask for a car to take you to Base Camp (Gusfandsara), remember most part of the road is gravel and it may not completely be useable in spring and winter and cars may not be able to go all the way, you may consider this gravel road "as far as car can go". The car for this part could be any strong 4WD car such as landrovers, Jeeps and mini trucks.

- Try to use landrover, Jeep and 4WD patrol cars.
- If you are more that two persons do not use mini trucks.
