Ways to Climb Binalud Mountian

South Dace: which includes three climbing routes. 1- Yal Do-Kohi, 2- Yal Garde, and 3- Suzani Path.

Do-Kohi Mountain Path: This ridge is located in the northwest direction of Do Shahid Shelter and continues through the pass between Zargaran Peak and Binalud Peak. With its gentle slope, this ridge allows the climber to reach the summit slowly and continuously. Mountaineers usually use this ridge for winter climb because they are safe from the danger of avalanches on the way to this ridge. Along the way, there are several springs from which the required water can be supplied.

Yal Garde Path: This route is the fastest way to reach the peak. This route leads directly to the peak and makes the climber reach the peak in a shorter distance than other routes, and that is why most climbers use this route for fast ascents. Garde is located between the ridge of two mountains and the needles and stands out on the north side of the shelter of Do-Shahid. At the beginning of this ridge, there is a permanent spring where the dear mountaineers can drink the water they need during this climb. After taking the water, we reach the peak after 2.5 hours. The end of this ridge is the place of avalanches in winter, and dear climbers should be cautious when climbing this ridge in winter.

Suzani Path: There is a third route through Janpanah Do Shahid, which is known as Suzani route. To climb through this route, you have to traverse towards Janpanah Modares and then change the route towards the falls when you reach the refuge. This route is one of the most technical and exciting ways to climb Binalud Peak. The shelter of Modares can also be seen from the ridge of Do-Shahid and its height is 2900 meters. It is necessary to remember that in this route, climbers must be aware of climbing techniques and because the climber has to pass stone passages along the route, for this reason, this route has a particular excitement and attraction and entices many enthusiasts.

Each of the climbing routes that were announced nowadays, with the effort of the climbers, has a shelter that helps the climbers a lot on the way, to the shelter of the Do-Shahid, in order to climb the peak, one must go to the villages of Soumea and Aishabad, both of which are 15 kilometers away. They are located north of Neyshabur, and they are located on both sides of the Mirabad river. It is possible to reach these villages from Neyshabur in 20 minutes. After passing through these villages, follow the road that reaches the river, and then continue on the opposite side of the river.

After two and a half hours, you will reach an area called Kemer Kandol, and after 5 minutes, you will reach a crossroads called Ketri crossroads, which is separated from the left side of the river. Here, you have the possibility to drive to this crossroads to speed up the program and save energy. After 1.5 hours of walking in Ketri Valley, you will reach a garden located on the slopes of Ras. We continue on the path that is located on the mountain. After about 40 minutes, we will reach the ridge. From this point, you can see the shelter of Do-Shahid. Of course, the weather conditions must be suitable to see it. After walking, we will reach the Neh spring, which can be considered the first camp for climbers in winter climbs. By continuing the path, we will reach Zereshk Zar, and after standing on the ridge leading to the shelter, after 20 minutes, we will reach the shelter of Do-Shahid.
