More Tips

- During Damavand Mountaineering if you have any question, try to find and ask your question to an English speaking mountaineer.

- If you travel from the capital city Tehran, the safest and the most reliable starting point either for the West or for the classic South route of Damavand is Camp1 Polour Hut.

- During summer and peak season for climbing, most mountain camps and huts such as Camp 3 Bargah Sevom old shelter and Camp3 New Hut shared saloon are crowded and too noisy, so for your comfort and privacy and to enjoy your hike it is much better to use a tent (not around camp2), or book and use a private rooms in the Camp 3 New Hut.

Camp Reservation and Booking

Unfortunately in summer, there is not an easy or a proper way to book the huts in advance in the high season, either by email or telephone, specially for the Camp 1 Polour Hut and Camp 3 New Hut private rooms. It is only possible to do it by good connections just a couple of days in advance!!! Damavand Ski Touring.

About Camp 2 Base (Goosfand Sara)
Camp 2 Base Goosfand Sara also called the Mosque is the most crowded campsite in the area in summer. We do not advise to use it in summer, because it is too crowded, dirty and noisy.
