Physical Fitness Climb Damavand



Physical fitness and physical preparation to climb Damavand

A very good physical fitness is required to climb to the summit of Damavand Mountain 5671 meters and an ordinary physical fitness is necessary to ascend to the Camp3 4250 meters.

Any of the following sport activities or a combination of them are useful to get ready for ascend to Mt Damavand peak.

The best places to do these exercises, if you have any access, are mountains and hills.
- Regular mount climbing, once to twice a week.
- Walking for 2 hours 3 times a week.
- Running (slowly) for 1 to 2 hours twice a week.
- It is a good idea to sleep few nights at high altitude for acclimatization (above 3000m, if possible).

These physical preparations are also very helpful to get fit for the climb.
- Cycling for 2 hours twice a week
- Swimming for 2 hour twice a week.
