Booking Damavand Camps

Update 8 June 2017 - Unfortunately at the moment we have no clear answer for foreign mountaineers for how to book Damavand camps! Already Iran Mountain Federation has stopped the former reservation system and intends to make an online registration for Damavand Camps. But we are not sure when and how they can manage it for foreigners!

Booking Damavand Camps

Update 4 July 2016 - In Crowded Season it is very difficult to book a private room at Damavand campsites, especially for Camp 3 New Hut. At the moment there is no specified contact for booking the camps. Generally Damavand tour operators refer directly to Camp 1 Polour and make the reservation. If you do not have any Iranian tour operator then you may refer to Polour resort in person and do the booking if available.

Private Rooms

The common way is to do the reservation by tour organizers (and not by individuals). To make sure about your place you may pay deposit in advance to your tour agency few months before starting the trek and they do the reservation (if available). In none crowded season they work on the base of first come first served!

Public Rooms (Dorm)

There is no booking system for public rooms (dorms) in Camp 1 Polour Resort and also for Camp 3 New Hut. They work all season simply on the base of first come first served!
