Itineraries Short
1 to 7 Days Itineraries for Mt. Damavand
Last Update 2 Feb 2011

We organize a wide range of quality tours for different climbing levels, from a single day up to 14 days, we are mainly focused on Damavand Mountain and support many travel agencies with our services and experienced guides. These are just samples of suggested itineraryies to show you how we handle the tours and are the most practical ones which have been tested and practiced successfully many times in our previous expeditions.

Let us know the exact logistic and support you need so we can discuss and finalize your itinerary and support you with the best possible services for your tailor-made trip and give an offer and estimation of your costs. Feel free to make changes and modification to an itinerary to best suit your programme, ie you may add an extra day to a package and reserve it for the second attempt to the summit in case of bad weather or team being too tired to continue.

In case you could make a trip shorter, you may spend the saved time in Larijan thermal spring, excursion to see the great Persian history in museums, Tehran Big Bazaar, National Treasure, Jewelry Museum and Darband Valley traditional restaurants or visit the King Palaces.
