    Discover one of the best options for ski touring in the incredible Iran…

    Mt Damavand is located in the heart of the Alborz mountains, more precisely on the southern coast of Caspian Sea. It’s a huge volcano with 5671 meters high and it’s considered the highest of Asia.

    I propose here a 8-day program during while we will discover this amazing summit and also enjoy the beauties surrounding it such as mountains valleys and forests. Further, we will rest in a house family firstly then in refuges before our ascent and lastly in a hotel in Tehran.

    Skiers that want to participate in this experience, must have some knowledge about technical skills and experience in varied terrain. Additionally, it’s important to be in excellent physical condition.

    I like very much bringing my clients and friends to Mt Damavand because:

    – It’s a unique and great spot for ski lovers, where you can improve your skiing and climb abilities

    – During the ascent we’ll have the opportunity to enjoy the incredible nature that this country offers;

    – The program is really well organised. As a certified mountain guide, I’ll bring all my mountain experience to accompany you in this expedition. What is more, we’ll have the chance to be guide also by a local guide.

    If you are considering this trip for other dates, it could be a great option! I can organised it! The only requirement is to be a minimum of 5 participants.

    So if you have any interest about this program, don’t hesitate in getting in touch with me. We’ll have the time to discuss about it and offer to you a program which meet your expectations. It will be my pleasure to be your guide and help you to discover such a beautiful place!

    I was disappointed. I was slower than the rest of the group reaching Tete Rousse, and the guide discouraged me from going to Gouter. I had a slight ankle sprain the day before which slowed my ascent. I recovered 95% the day after. My complaint: when I decided to go for a second guided attempt, at a slower pace, I received no help in securing a guide, or a reservation at Gouter. The online reservation showed fully booked both for Rousse and Gouter. But I know that there were lots of empty bunks at Rousse, and I suspect the same at Gouter. I received sympathy, but only as a formality. Initially I had sought a single dedicated guide, but I was encouraged to join a group. I did not get a choice.I should have known better, I knew my pace would be a bit slower, but I counted on your support and understanding. I got neither. I was on my own with no help.
