Overview

Damavand Expedition | North Face 

This is Damavand‘s most challenging track and requires some experience. It’s quite steep in some parts and involves clambering. The wind is usually strong on Damavand’s north face so it is also much colder than the south face. In May and June, there is often snow and ice. There are two shelters along this route at 4,000 meters and then at 4,700 meters.

Damavand Climb – Northern Track

Damavand ascent from the north face is the steepest and most difficult track among the four main routes of Damavand.

 

General Information

Climbing to Damavand summit from the north face is usually done in groups in the form of a 2 day or 2.5 day program, with the first day or night moving from Tehran to Nandal village and driving with 4×4 to 2900 m. We reach the Sang-e Bozorg camp at an altitude of about 3000 meters. From here, the backpacks are handed over to the mules that have already been coordinated in the village to the first shelter (4,000 Shelter, alt: 3850 m) or to the second shelter (5,000 Shelter, alt: 4800m).

Ascent from the starting point to the first refuge takes about 5 hours on average, from there to the second refuge about 2.5 hours and from the second refuge to the summit about 6 hours.
