About Us
1 Feb 2011, Updated by Sherppa.

Safety is our first priority and main concern.
We have been climbing about 30 years and over 20 years our main focus has been Mt Damavand guiding. It would be no exaggeration to say that this experience has led MDG to become the primary choice for Damavand climbing, mountaineering and hiking trekking.

Mount Damavand Guide is an energetic NGO group of Iranian mountain guides that has been formed by mountaineers who were among the pioneers of organising climbing and trekking expeditions for foreign climbers and incoming tours. MDG was founded in 1990 as a nationally based mountaineering club by members of the Azad Moutaineering Group of Iran.

We have a team of highly trained and qualified guides, which are guarantee of safety and quality days on the mountains. Our guides are senior mountain guides and the most experienced in the country, members of 100 Damavand Club, and Iran Mountain Federation.

We are based in Tehran and operate all season in the Alborz and Zagros Mountain Ranges. Each year we take many foreign groups and individual climbers to Damavand summit and share our experience to give them the best chance of success.

We offer quality tours covering a variety of outdoor activities, from complete beginner summer hiking, ideal for newcomers, up to most advanced winter climbing and alpine style experiences.

Think Less Climb More!
We are a friendly team who prefer to be on mountains and in campsite instead of sitting in a physical office.
With 24 consecutive climbs to Mt Damavand summit in 2007, we have the first rank of ascends for a single year to this mountain.
