Acclimatization for Damavand

Generally speaking 5 days itinerary is very good for Mount Damavand, but we can discuss more about itinerary when we know more details about arrival to Iran and the arrival time to the first camp, ie if you arrive to Camp1 Polour late in the afternoon, you may need one extra day for acclimatization at this camp.

Q- What kind of acclimatisation do you recommend for climbing Mt Damavand Iran?
A- It is mainly dependent to your mountaineering experience in high altitude, training and physical fitness. Generally speaking for ordinarily mountaineers, sleeping one nigh at Camp1 Polour 2250m and one night at Camp3 Bargah Sevom 4250 could be good enough to attempt the peak 5671m. But if you are not quite sure about your adaptation to the high altitude, you may consider the second night rest at camp3 before the summit push.

Important Note
We do not recommend to use Camp1 Reyneh as a starting point and Camp2 Base for acclimatization or accommodation any more especially in summer season. Sea also Warning.
