Damavand Difficulty and Climbing Grade

In summer seasin the difficulty of Mt Damavand 5671 m in Iran is almost the same as Mount Kilimanjaro 5892 m in Tanzania and Mount Everest Base Camp 5380 m in the Himalayans Range. But in winter and cold condition it is very difficult and it is quite different story and it should be compared to 7000 meters peaks or more. Visit also Damavand Weather Forcast.

Mt Damawand is well-known for its mild slops, summer climbing to this summit is technically easy but physically moderate and climbers should be fit enough to try it. The main challenge of the ascend is acclimatization and the weather.

Remember the ascend should be done only in a correct timing and in a suitable weather, otherwise it is very tough and risky in a bad weather condition and off-season. Visit also Damavand Forum.
