We will stay in Shemshak village on 2700m (last village before base camp of Kolon Bastak Mountain). This attitude will prepare you physically and mentally for climbing.
Next day morning, with a short transfer, we start ascending to the MT Kolon Bastak peak (4250m). On this trekking route many of Central Alborz Mountains are visible. The summit will give you a good view of Shah Alborz, Tochal (3960 m) and Seechal in the south; Damavand, Kholeno area, Sarakchal (4210m), Abak… in the east; Naz, Kahar, Takht-e-Soleiman massif in the west and the middle part of central Alborz ridge lines with impressive Azadkuh (4400m) in the north. We will have a good view of Dizin, Shemshak and Darband Sar ski resorts as well. After one day rest, we will drive to Damavand base camp and from there we will get on a 4×4 towards the second camp. From here we start ascending to the 3rd camp with 4250 m altitude (Bargah Sevom). The next day is acclimatization day for the PEAK, we will hike up around 5000m and back to our camp. On this night, we sleep early to be prepared for summit day which is the hardest and longest day. On the last day after climbing to the peak, we will descend to the base camp and from there will drive to Larijan hot spring spa before driving back to Tehran.
In this program, you will have enough time to relax, socialize with locals and take photos of the majestic volcano from vintage points. Once on Damavand summit, you will experience the highest point of the Iranian plateau and the Middle East.
