Damavand Expedition Iran

Steeped in mythology the iconic peak of Mount Damavand has also been peppered into Persian Ptry and literature as a symbol of the resistance to foreign rule. Its majestic volcanic form rises steeply from the Central Alborz mountain range and whilst it is coated in snow during the winter it is an achievable peak for walkers and climbers during the summer season. Following some time to acclimatise in the mountains above Tehran we head to the south side of the mountain. Ascending the peak with good acclimatisation and staying at the climbers hut before our summit push we hope to reach the volcanic rim at sunrise. An easy descent of the volcanic scree is a welcome respite from the rigours of summit day, before returning to Tehran.
