The Real Adventure to Damavand

4 Day Trekking Damavand North-East Route Tour

From € 548

The north-east route to ascend Damavand is the longest approach to the summit. The height of the starting point known as Goosfand Sara is 2800 meters high, which is the lowest starting point compared to the other three ascent route. In exchange, the slope for this route is gentler than the northern and western approaches in most parts. Also, due to being near eastern and north mountain glaciers, we’ll see a range of beautiful sceneries in front of us as we ascend. Therefore, diversity is at the heart of this trail. Walking in a massive field, climbing rocks, traversing from the bottom of ice sheets, or trekking on a steep slope is all among the many experiences we’ll have on our ascent to the summit.

The accommodations are set in a way that we spend the first night at a foothill village in a local house and two nights at the tents in a shelter located at 4360 meters height. Moreover, this plan for the accommodation helps with acclimatization for a joyful trekking experience.

We’ll pack our summit bags early in the morning and get on the dirt road to the starting point of our trekking route. Then, we can give our backpacks to the porters to carry up with mules at the starting point popular as “Goosfand Sara.” It’s located at 2800 meters height. After 5 hours of trekking, we’ll get to Takht-e Fereydoun shelter at 4360 meters height. Then we’ll walk through a beautiful green field and set up our camp next to the shelter. After some rest and eating lunch, we’ll hike up to 4700 meters height for acclimatization. We’ll take in the joy for a while and get back to our camp after some rest.

After having lunch and a little bit of rest, we climb to about 4700 meters to acclimatize, enjoy the view a little bit and return to the camp before sunset. Then we will have dinner and get ready for bed.

From the north-eastern ridge, we’ll get to the northern crest, which smells like the sulfur vapor. That is a sign of celebration. We are standing at the highest point of the middle east, which will bring an indescribable joy to our hearts.  After snapping some memorable photos and some rest, we’ll slowly take the same route to descend back to our shelter. Ascending to the summit will become a memory to tell stories about for a lifetime. Afterward, we’ll get some rest after eating at the shelter.
