What’s the Best Time for Hiking & Trekking Tours?

Take into consideration the fact that Iran climbing tours could take place in a variety of different regions. So, it’s always the “right time”! You can do it all year round. For instance, the south of Iran has a pleasant climate for hiking in winter. There are more accessible hiking trails and summits, such as the Homag Summit in the North of Bandar Abas.

Moreover, the best time for climbing most of the mountains in Iran like Damavand and Alam-Kuh is from early June to late August. This date varies depending on the climate each year. There have even been years where we were able to ascend the Damavand peak in October.

Winter ascends to Iran peaks are also possible. These ascend are suitable for professional and seasoned climbers as they need a high level of expertise as well as professional and adequate gear.

This one depends on your physical abilities and your level of expertise. If you don’t have experience in climbing 3000-meter mountains, then it’s better to choose mountains like Tochal, Kolun Bastan, and Sabalan. However, if you’re experienced in this matter and you’re in good shape, we would recommend damavand tour and Alam-Kuh. We’ve designed our tour packages based on our guides’ experiences. Also, they include acclimatization programs that will get you ready for ascending the peaks. If you need further information regarding our Iran trekking tours, please, don’t hesitate to contact us.

Yes, Iran’s mountains are not hard to ascend, and Damavand tour is no exception. Damavand and Alam-Kuh are the tallest mountains in Iran. And yet, they’re not hard to climb at all! Especially if you’re in good shape and properly acclimatized. Most mountaineers can climb these two, and if you can climb these, the others will be no trouble. However, it helps if you have experience in climbing 3 or 4 thousand meters’ mountains, but it’s not a necessity.

In climbing seasons, which is from June to August, there’s no need for professional gear. The basics will do: Trekking shoes, Backpack, Trekking pants and jacket, gloves and woolen hat, sunglasses, sleeping bag, headlamp, etc. However, in winter, you will need other gear based on the amount of snow and weather. Please visit our tour pages if you need more information regarding the equipment.

Some trekking routes are more accessible, and people can carry their gear. Some of the routes, like Damavand tour and Alam-Kuh, need assistance from porters. Therefore, they will help mountaineers take their equipment up the mountain.

If you don’t have a good schedule, then you might end up getting altitude sickness (AMS). However, we won’t let that happen! We’ve designed our tour packages for various weather conditions, and you can choose them based on your readiness and your experience. In case you have any doubts about our Iran trekking tours, do not hesitate to contact our mountain experts.
