Thermal Springs
Abe Garm Larijan Thermal Springs or Hot Springs
There are some thermal springs and spa mainly at the base of Volcano Damavand with therapeutic qualities. These hot springs are indication of a Volcanic Activity and heat near the surface of the earth .
There is no recorded historic eruptions for Damavand Volcano and is believed to be an extinct volcano, but fumaroles (gas and steam vents) near the Summit crater and hot springs on the flanks suggest that a hot magma body is present beneath the earth and still there is a minor and continuing activity.

The sulphorous fumaroles which still emit gases at the top and the thermal hot springs in the valleys testify to a remaining heat source, indicates that Damavand Volcano is a dormant volcano rather than an extinct one.

The most important of these thermal springs are in Abe garm Larijan Town, with public spa baths and small pools for public use. Larijan spa is in the district of Larijan on the south face of the mountain. The mineral hot water from these spring are useful in the treatment of chronic wounds, and skin diseases.

If you have spared time, specially after your climb to the mountain, it is a good idea to go to Abe Garm Larijan Town just 5 km from Camp 1 Reyneh and use the benefit of mineral hot water springs or spend a night there. Take a bath in the basin of hot minaral water and forget all about the exhaustion of your hard climb very fast , and of course , dont forget the persian chelo kabab afterward !
