Damavand Fake Summit

The Official Website of the Mount Damavand Guides Iran

False Peak of Mt Damawand (at 5400m)

Damavand summit is not visible while looking to the top at at Camp3 Bargah sevom, instead you can see a fake peak which is located at altitude 5400 m. This fake peak is called Sang Mosalasi and it is just 270 meters below the real peak, about an hour to the top. This impersonating peak is a big boulder which looks like a pyramid.

When ascending the South route of the mountain from 3rd camp, you can not see the real summit until you pass the virtual summit and reach the sulphuric area. Remember Damawand has a big crater and not a single rocky peak!

In a clear weather when reaching the fake peak you will see the Volcano's crater and volcanic fumarolic activity which releases a great amount of hot gases and you will smell sulphuric smokes. The area between the fake and real summit has a mild slope with easy climbing grade, and is called the Dangrous Zone.
