IS THIS TOUR FOR ME?
These adventures involve ski-touring, trekking, cycling or rafting for up to 6 or 7 hours a day at a steady pace. You have to have a good level of fitness and be in good health. The majority of our moderately graded treks involve the carrying of a day pack only, though some may involve carrying a full pack. Be prepared for variable weather conditions.
Damavand southern route is not a technical climb. It just needs good health and stamina as well as ability to trek in altitudes.
