Damavand is famous among climbers for ascending to the peak, but it has some offerings to explorers as well. It is the highest peak in the Middle East and second highest volcanic in Asia (after Kunlun volcano in Tibet). Damavand is an active volcano with 16 climbing routes. Each of these 16 routes would offer different views and attractions from its peak and surrounding area. On and around this vast mountain, there are different villages and nomads living. These people live with this mountain and their lives would be nothing without the generous offerings of this mountain. These locals breed ships and goats and make honey from bees. In fact, getting to know more about the lifestyle of these people is one of the main highlights of this trip. For those who are in love of nature, there are different flora and fauna to see and enjoy. On this trip the main focus would be on the south face of the mountain to discover its attractions and socialize with people living there. We will visit two villages of Nava & Shahandasht along with visiting Larijan and its hot spring spas. You will also enjoy half a day 4×4 driving to the second camp (3000m).


Day 1: Drive from Tehran to Larijan, sightseeing and photography Nava & Shahandasht

Early morning (around 6 A.M), you will be picked up from your hotel driving to the south face of Damavand. It will take about 2 hours.
