Introduction to Alam Kuh Climbing

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 Alam-Kuh , 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 Alam-Kuh , 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 Alam-Kuh 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 Alam-Kuh 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.

Testimonials

An unforgettable trip

We really had an amazing trip with Cheetah-Adventures in Iran. The Damavand is one of the most beautiful mountain I’ve ever climbed and the acclimatization was perfect thank to our guide. We really felt in good hands all over the ascension. After climbing the mountain and looking for a deserved relax, we ask for a touristic tour. The selection of the hotels, meals and tours were very well done and travel with our guide made Iran culture closer and magic… I’ m sure I’ll come back to Iran. I highly recommend traveling with Cheetah-Adventures.

ElenaSpainElena’s Review on TripAdvisor

One of the best treatments in my life.

I am 46 years old and have been travelling for the last 25. I have to say that I was not even closely expecting to receive such a professional agency treatment like Cheetah Adventures. One of the best treatments in my life.
The team is made of professional mountaineers, engineers, young managers. Everything was planned and executed just as it was agreed, and exceeding that as well.
Experienced mountaineers led us to conquer the Damavand peak (5671m) and feel all the time comfortable and with positive attitude.
The cultural trip accross Iran major cities is well organized, great accomodation, food, guide Ghazal, driver Mr. Azimi.
I strongly reccomend Ali, Mehrdad, Soroush and team to everybody wishing to visit on of the best places on earth, Iran.
Top service!
