Route 8 daagse rondreis Iran: Mt Damavand Ascent

Mount Damavand, (5671m) towers over the barren and rugged slopes of the Elburz mountain chain in Iran and presents a compelling challenge for fit trekkers. Just 45 miles northeast of Tehran, and dominating the skyline, Mt Damavand's great height and classic volcanic shape grant it dominating presence. Snow-capped year round, it endures harsh winters but moderate summers. Though active, the volcano hasn’t erupted in modern times and is said to be in its final stages before becoming dormant. Nonetheless, warm mineral springs at its base and the absence of extensive glaciers are evidence of continuing internal activity. Though not technical, it is a tough climb to the summit but with a panoramic view of fertile mountains and valleys and sea to the north and barren deserts to the south it is also a very rewarding one.
