Additional Information

Damavnd Trekking Routes:

The southern route is the most well-known of all. This route for trekking mount Damavand is mostly chosen because of its facilities such as the hut located at 4200 meters, with electricity, toilets and beds available, and its ease, omitting the need for ropes and gears. However, other routes such as the northern and western ones are more difficult and there aren’t any suitable huts available. read more about Damavand Trekking Routes.

Damavand Weather condition:

June to September is the best time to conquer mount Damavand. During this period the weather is mostly good and snow/ rain scarcely falls. However, our guides are committed to checking the weather prior to each program. In case of an unpredicted bad weather extra days will be added to your Damavand tour. read more about Damavand’s weather conditions.

Damavand 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 Damavand 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 the Himalaya 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. read more about Cheetah-Adventures’ mountain guides.
