With more than thousands of tourists who travel to Iran for Damavand Trek tours every year, this mountain is one of the most important tourist attractions in Iran.

A single and cone-shaped peak, located in the middle of the Alborz Mountains, between the Caspian Sea and the central desert of Iran.
The semi-extinct volcano lasts between 3 to 5 days to climb in the summertime which is the best season.

Although its hiking tours are very diverse, Damavand Trek & Alamkuh Climbing touring tour is one of the best and most attractive ones.

Damavand & Alamkuh Tour FAQ

Frequently asked questions and answers about Damavand Trek & Alamkuh Tour from Southern Route

In response, it should be said that both Damavand trek and Alamkuh climb are among the highest and most difficult mountains in Iran to climb. Certainly, Damavand will have its difficulties with higher altitudes. But considering that you climb Alamkooh first, you will definitely not have a problem with the height of Damavand.

As mentioned in Include Services, and considering the limitation of carrying weight by porters, each person is allowed to take 7-8 km of personal stuff. We will give you a duffle bag that has enough capacity for two-person stuff (15-16 kg) and it will carry up by porters. As our experience and considering don’t need to take any food/water in the luggage, 7-8 kg is enough allowed weight including clothes, sleeping bag, personal stuff.

Of course, in both Alamkuh & Damavand base camps, the guest houses, or local houses that we choose for the team to stay, there are safe places for storing extra stuff like city clothes, shoes, etc.
However, it is recommended that to keep your passport, wallet, and valuables things with yourself during the trip.

You will have to pay for climbing permits. Damavand permit is 50 $ or Euros and the Alamkuh climbing permit is 30 $ or Euros. According to the new regulations, the tourist has to be present at Iran Mountaineering Federation Offices at Alamkuh & Damavand, show their passports and visas, pay the fee in cash, and get a climbing permit by themselves.

This money is spent on clearing the mountain and taking care of its environment. Certainly, if you do not get permits, it is not possible to climb the AlamKuh and Damavand!
