After a warm lunch, introductions with your fellow explorers, and leaving your extra equipment (city clothes, suitcase, etc) in the hostel it’s time to meet the mountain itself! An acclimatization hike awaits, leading you to wildflowers. Breathe in the crisp mountain air, your senses awakened by the symphony of nature. As you reach a slightly higher point, Damavand unfolds its grandeur before you, a giant guarding the horizon.

As described in the tour itinerary, the group will set up the camp at Goosfandsara and spend overnight there at a tent camp.

There are some local rooms at Goosfandsara that are not clean and comfortable enough, so not recommended.

To provide the most comfortable sleep for our clients, sometimes we offer them to trek up to 3000 m and back to the hostel in the town to have a better rest and recovery.

Day/Night 2 Accommodation

Mount Damavand Camp 2 & Alborz Mountains viewThere is a good refuge and an old metal Bivouac at 4250 m altitude next to many good and flattened campsites. Normally we offer sleeping at a tent camp because they will be too busy and noisy from July to the middle of September.

On the other hand, the Damavand trek before normal season is really cold. So it is recommended to sleep at the hut dorm (shared rooms) instead of camping outside. So April & May till the middle of June and later than September, we will try to book hut rooms for our groups.

Of course, everything will be depending on your booking date/time and the capacity of the hut. Earlier booking, more chance of availability of sleeping in the hut.

 

Day/Night 3 Accommodation

The summit day in the 4-day Damavand trek tour is the longest and most difficult day of the tour. based on this, we considered that the group sleep in a tent camp or hut dorm (stay at 4250 m altitude).

In some cases, depending on the group’s fitnesses and readiness after climbing the summit and back to the camp, weather conditions, availability of transport down luggage by mules, and most importantly, the capacity of the hostel, we may have a chance to decent to the town and sleep more comfortably in our lovely Damavand hostel.

So if possible, the group will descend on the 3rd day after climbing the summit and sleep in the hostel.

Damavand Trek 4-Day Tour Map (Southern Route)

You can see the Damavand trek tour map above, which is designed for a 4-day tour from the southern route. In this map, routes are separated by different colors. For better understanding, you can click on the map to see it in a bigger size.

When it comes to the Damavand trek tour, the most famous and most common route is the southern route.
A beautiful path, and of course accessible, with suitable places for a campsite, a good shelter, public baths and a water spring next to the camp.

The start point of the Damavand trek tour is from the southern route by Rineh town or Polour village. To reach this point, you have to go north from Tehran through the mountain road of Haraz, and after 2-3 hours you will reach this town/village. To climb Damavand, tourists must pay $50 to the Iran Mountaineering Federation and receive a climbing permit.

As you can see in the Damavand trek map from the south route, we will transfer our group to Rineh first, and after resting, changing clothes, and leaving extra stuff in the Damavand Hostel, our trekking to this beautiful peak will begin.

The first day starts with a light trek to the foothills of Damavand and up to an approximate height of 3000 meters, on the second day we will climb to the shelter of Bargah Som at an altitude of 4250 meters, and on the third day, we will climb to the Damavand peak.

FAQ in 4 Day Damavand Trek Tour

You can find all frequently asked questions (FAQ) and answers about the Damavand trek tour from the southern route & all about this tour are answered below…

If you can not find your questions answered in the tour details or below list of FAQs below, please do not hesitate to contact us and ask anything that comes to your mind regarding Damavand trekking tours.

Mount Damavand is 5610 m high (tall). There are 5671 m or else written somewhere, but that’s not trustworthy! In 2008 a group of scientists from the Iran Geology Association did a measurement project on Damavand and the exact altitude was 5609.10 m. Read more about Damavand’s height here.

The answer is simple and complicated! You can climb Mount Damavand for 2 to 5 days. Some professional sky runners do it even in 24 hours, but it’s not recommended. The best and safest could be climbing in 5 days from Tehran to Tehran.

This is a fully guided tour from Tehran to Tehran, including all meals, accommodation in mountain shelters, and professional guidance throughout the trek.

The climbing season for Damavand is from mid-June to mid-September. Booking in advance is recommended, especially during peak season.

Depending on your booking time and availability, you’ll be staying in a mountain hut with dormitory-style bunk beds or a two-person tent camp. Also as described in the tour itinerary, you may sleep one night at Damavand hostel in Rineh town.

No, all meals are included in the tour. You’ll only need to carry water for the day’s hike (typically 1.5 to 2 liters) as refills will be provided at camps.

Due to the high altitude and cold temperatures, showering is not recommended. Basic freshening up with wipes is possible. But you can take a shower at the Damavand hostel, before or after the Damavand trek.

We will provide a detailed packing list upon booking to ensure you have everything you need for a safe and comfortable trek. You can also see the Damavand equipment list in the Damavand Climbing Guide article.
