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.
