Damavand Campsites - First Camp Reineh

Reineh Hut is the first mountaineering resort made for Hiking Damavand Iran. It is located in Reyneh Town in Larijan district. It was built in 1939 and reconstructed in 1969. Since then there has been no major reconstruction in this building. Among the Damavand Camps, this small old camp was the main resort for climbers before Polour complex campsite was made in 2004. Reineh hut is losing its popularity among climbers rapidly in the recent years. Damawand Camp1 Reyneh FAQ.

If you travel from north of Iran, ie Gilan or Mazandaran province, you may use this camp. But if you travel from Tehran you have a better option and recommended to go to Camp 1 Polour Hut which is a much better place and a shortcut to Damavand Iran.
