Introduction to Alam Kuh Trekking Tour

Alam Kuh, located in Alborz mountain range, is the second highest summit in Iran with 4850 meters of altitude. 

Known as the Alps of Iran, the region of Alam Kuh has several steep summits with more than 3000 to 4000 meters of altitude. Its permanent glaciers and snowfields enable mountaineers to do all kinds of activities. 

This region, called Takht e Soleyman , contains more than 40 summits with more than 4000 meters of altitude with the highest  being Alam-Kuh ( 4850 meters high ). 

Although Mount Damavand, being the most prominent peak in Iran, has overshadowed AlamKuh , this magnificent summit has a lot to offer to those enthusiastic about  mountains and trekking.

It is possible to conquer Alam Kuh in only 2 to 3 days through the southern face where the route is a normal trekking route. In addition, it’s also possible to conquer the nearby summits and enjoy the beautiful landscape they have. 

The 500 meters high granite wall in the northern face of AlamKuh , known as Alam-Kuh big wall, is one of the attractions of this beautiful summit . Mountaineers from all around the world such as France, Italy, Poland and etc. have opened routes in this wall. Each route is named after the nationality of the groups of mountaineers that opened it.

The technical route of Alam Kuh begins at the northern face and goes through the big wall. This route offers professional mountain climbers the opportunity to do mountain pitch climbing on the big wall.  In addition, intense climbing activities in more than 4300 meters of altitude increase the joy of conquering Alam-Kuh summit. 

Climbing AlamKuh can also help the acclimatization process and allow mountaineers to enjoy conquering Mount Damavand better, as they’ve already been in 4850 meters of altitude. Thus, many choose AlamKuh as an acclimatization phase for climbing Mount Damavand. 

Climbing twin highest peaks of Iran is possible by purchasing our package.

Additional Information

Acclimatization and Preparation:

Our acclimatization program is resulted from years of experience in guiding various types of people through their hike and is set to be suitable for people living in locations that are near sea level high. But even people who haven’t experienced more than 3000m of height won’t have any issues during their journey.

Our Guides:

Our guides are qualified mountain climbers with years of experience in leading tours and a history of conquering 7000/8000 meter high peaks in Himalia mountain range in their resume.

In addition to their experience and thorough knowledge of mountain routes, our guides have taken multiple courses in rescuing and first aid to assure our fellow mountain climbers’ safety throughout the trek.

Adventure of a Lifetime Been dreaming about visiting Iran and climbing my first 5 thousander for quite some time. I knew it was just a matter of time and finding the right people to help us turning our dream into reality. And then we found them: Cheetah Adventure team.First of all, thanks to Ali, the head of the team, who helped us with our visa and organised our trip. He was patient enough to answer all our questions prior the trip.Deep respect to Ashkan and Mehrdad our mountain guides. Without their tips and assistance our team wouldn't be able to summit Damavand (5610m) so easily. So even if you are an experienced hiker, do not attempt to climb this giant without these people. They do know the mountain, more than anyone.Thanks to Mohammad and Mehrdad who guided us in concrete jungles of Tehran and Isfahan. Showing us the most important and amazing sights, leading us through narrow passages in bazaars, introducing us the tastiest local dishes. Last but not least, I'm extremely grateful to our skillful and experienced drivers. They were life- savers, for sure.Going Back? Definitely! Iran has so much to offer! See you in Persian Gulf ... Let's see what's in the depth of the crystal clear waters...

CLIMB OF DAMAVAND AND 1-DAY TOUR IN TEHRAN CONTACTED CHEETAH ADVENTURES TO ORGANISE A GUIDED CLIMP OF MOUNT DAMAVAND, ON JUNE 2023. COMMUNICATION WAS EFFICIENT AND ORGANIZATION WAS VERY PROFFESSIONAL. VISA WAS ISSUED QUICKLY AND THE TRANSPORT / CLIMB SCHEDULE WAS AS AGREED. FRIENDLY PEOPLE, ADAPTABLE TO THE SITUATIONS , WITH THE RIGHT LEVEL OF FLEXIBILITY, AS AND WHEN NEEDED. LAST DAY WAS DEDICATED TO A WELL ORGANISED GUIDED TOUR OF TEHRAN. I WAS LEFT WITH VERY POSITIVE IMPRESSIONS. SPECIAL THANKS TO ALI (CHEETAH ADVENTURES CEO), ASHKAN (MY MOUNTAIN GUIDE) AND SABER (MY TEHRAN TOUR GUIDE). MAY GOD HELP AND PROTECT YOU ALL.

Best weekend in Iran We wanted to thank Ali and Mehdad for their hospitality, professionalism, loyalty to their work and awesome memories. First of all Ali helped us to get a visa in a matter of two days, which is crazy fast. Without getting any money in advance because there was a problem with transactions from our side. He did it based on pure trust. Then already in a country we accidentally left our passports in Teheran, cause of the hotel’s policy, they take your passport while you stay there, and after being checked out walking around in different city, we remembered about such a tiny thing like your passport being left out in another country, Ali helped to resolve this problem too. Which we were really grateful for. Besides all the views and all the history. It was top-notch. The most memorable trip abroad so far, thank you guys for everything. We’re hoping to come back and will try to repeat the adventure with you. Sorry for the delayed review. Hope to see you soon ???? Jane and Kseniia

Iranian culture trip Our trip to Iran could not have been better prepared and organized. My husband and I traveled with our 6 year old daughter for the last 3 weeks during a time of change in Iran. As part of our family has a US passport, we had great support by Ali to make sure our Visas are processed accordingly. It was not easy but it all worked out with Ali’s help.Ali and his guides Farid and Mousse took great care of us and were very knowledgeable about the history and places we visited. We did not feel as normal tourists on this trip but we were treated as friends and family throughout the entire time of our trip. The Iranian people are warm, welcoming and extremely friendly. They are proud of their heritage, their long world history and the normal people on the streets are just beautiful - inside out!Obviously, change is going to happen in Iran. We listened to the peoples stories, wishes, dreams and desires. They are all ready for the world to embrace them and take them in as equal partners and friends. Our heart is with the Iranian people.

Damavand 4 trek I had a pleasure to do 4-day Damavand trek with Ali. From the beginning we had good communication, everything was clear and on time. The equipement was provided and things well organised, the pace well adjusted. Ali is very experienced climber and helpful with sharing his knowledge about mountains and Iran itself, which made the whole expierience very natural and personal. Couldn't recommend it more
