Damavand Base Camp is the summer starting point for the south route. In this area there is a small shelter, a mosque (called Saheb Al Zaman Mosque) and a sheepfold (called Goosfand Sara ye Ehsan). Unfortunately Goosfand Sara is not an ideal place for camping and tenting in summer season because it is too crowded, very noisy and dirty.

damavand-acclimatization

Damavand Acclimatization

In summer trekking to Damavand  is not difficult in technical terms. But physically it is a hard climb. The main difficulties are Damavand Weather, sulfur smokes and the acclimatization. The air gets thinner with less oxygen as you gain altitude. To increase the chance of success and lower the risk of AMS and to enjoy a safe hike to this giant volcano it is necessary to have a proper acclimatization for this mountain. The best campsites to acclimatize for those who intend to trek from south route are Camp 1 Polour Hut at 2250 m and Camp3 Bargah New Hut at 4250 m.

damavand-difficulty

Difficulty of Damavand Mountain

Volcano Damavand is well-known for its mild trekking ridges. Ascending this 5671 meters (18,605 feet) gigantic volcano is technically moderate but physically it is a tough ascend and requires a very good physical fitness. The major trekking difficulties are Damavand Weather, acclimatization and the sulfur smokes. Challenging Damavand in summer is similar to Mt Kilimanjaro in Tanzania and Mt Everest Base Camp. But Damavand Winter Climb is a quite different story, it is very difficult and may be compared to 7000 meters summits or higher.
