Trip Notes

Deviating from this itinerary is sometimes unpreventable due to weather conditions, seasonal changes, frequency of visits to a village or for any other factor which may influence our travel times and schedules. Furthermore, this is a tight itinerary and sometimes we must skip a place or two depending on the local conditions.

This trip consists of two parts; Ski touring, exercising and acclimatization program through Dobrar Mountain Ridgeline around 4000 m & ski touring-mountaineering in Mt Damavand 5610 m. It has been designed to take advantage of exceptional deep powder skiing during the late winter and early spring months in a couple of Mountains around 4000 m and massive Mt Damavand. During this period, snow is quite stable and there is a little chance of avalanche. This program is ideal for people who have previous experience in randonee or telemark skiing. The days spent are quite vigorous engaged both uphill and downhill skiing. So we expect our clients to be quite fit and capable of handling various snow conditions that one will inevitably encounter on such trips. There is also the matter of climbing Iran’s highest peaks and then skiing down to double the fun.

Damavand with 5610 meters altitude (according to the latest estimates) is the highest mountain in Iran and western Asia. It is also the highest volcanic cone-shaped peak in Asia.  Its volcanic activity has been in the geological past and there is no human historical record of any known activity, so it is considered as a non-active former volcano. As a former volcano it is endowed with many natural gifts due to its past. Hot and cold springs abound on her slopes and the surrounding land. There are sizable areas on its slopes that are covered with sulfur and still active enough to give off that special sulfur odor. There are relatively large glaciers, frozen waterfalls, gas and steam wells. Because of many deep valleys and high slopes surrounding it, the region harbors a great variety of vegetation and wildlife. There are great vistas where one can take in some quiet moments and gaze at beautiful panoramas, while standing in the heart of this remarkable mountain.
It is located in the Central Alborz Mountain chain and has at least 16 recognized routes for ascending to its peak. There is a long and colorful history of numerous ascends. Some has become quite mythical in their colorful accounts, courageous deeds and tragic ends. The mountain itself is the subject of many mythical and folkloric tales. In the spring the slopes are covered by green pastures and wild flowers. From the peak, one can see quite some distance. To the north there are the waters of the Caspian Sea, to the west there are the waters of Lar reservoir and the sprawling city of Tehran. To the south one can gaze into the vastness of the desert which is called Dashte Kavir. A truly remarkable and memorable climb on a unique mountain.
