Damavand Danger Zone

Helpful info for Climbing Mount Damawand South Route Iran.

Mount Damawand Risky Zone

There is an area on the southern route of the Mt Damavand called the Danger Zone. It is the most risky part of the mountain during bad weather, poor visibility, snow, fog and cloudy condition. Danger Zone is located between the fake summit 5400m and the real peak 5670m.

It has a mild climbing slope, without rocks and signs, it looks like a desert with only a few guideposts which you can not find them in foggy and cloudy condition. In a good visibility it is not a difficult part of the mountain.

It is similar to the Bermuda Triangle!. But there is no mysterious or supernatural events there, just mountaineers are not able to find the right trail in this part when they return back from the summit in bad visibility. It looks like a one way road! you can ascend it easily, but you can not find your way back to Camp3.

The main cause of disaster in the area is bad weather and poor visibility. Even in conditions that make it difficult to see clearly without any particular equipment it is possible to climb to the top, but it isimpossile to find any sign, footprints and your way back to descend to the lower camps and you may finish with a bitter end.
