Camp 1 Reyneh
Mt Damavand South Route Campsites
Reineh hut is the oldest Mt Damavand campsite, it was build in 1939 and reconstructed in 1969, since then there has been no major changes in this building, this small old camp is located in Reyneh Town and it was the only main mountain resort in the area for many years before the construction of Camp 1 Polour in Polour Village in 2004. In recent years among Iranian climbers and foreign tourists, Reineh hut has lost its popularity to the new hut.
If you want to go to Damavand from north of Iran, either from Mazandaran or Gilan or province, you may use the Reineh as your starting point to the south route, but if you travel through capital Tehran, you have a better option and you are recommended to use Polour Hut which is much better place and a shortcut to the Base Camp.
