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.
