Mount Damavand Base Camp

The second campsite of Damavand is located at altitude 3040 meters above sea level. It has various names such as Camp 2, Base Camp, Goosfand Sara and Mosque. Damavand Base Camp is the summer starting point for the south route. In this area there is a small shelter, a mosque (called Saheb Al Zaman Mosque) and a sheepfold (called Goosfand Sara ye Ehsan). Unfortunately Goosfand Sara is not an ideal place for camping and tenting in summer season because it is too crowded, very noisy and dirty.

damavand-acclimatization

Damavand Acclimatization

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.

Difficulty of Damavand Mountain

Volcano Damavand is well-known for its mild trekking ridges.
