Damavand Acclimatization

In technical terms it is not difficult to trekk to Mount Damavand in summer season. But physically it is a hard climb. The major difficulties are Damavand Weather, sulfur smokes and the acclimatization. The fact is that the air gets thinner with less oxygen as you go higher. To increase your chance of success and to lower the risk of AMS and also to enjoy a safe trek to this magnificent mountain it is essential to have a proper acclimatization for this giant volcano. The best mountain resorts to acclimatize for those who intend to trek from south route are Camp 1 Polour Hut at 2250 m and Camp3 Bargah New Hut at 4250 m.
