Safety instructions and common mistakes :

1 - Most of Young climbers and visitors try to walk fast and with max. Power, well, walking at your max. Ability is good but not in Damavand, This region has different features than your country, so keep some energy at the end of each stage NOT using all in your body in one action. In another hand having some energy for EMERGENCIES is a good idea rather than sorry.

2 - DO NOT GO to Summit immediatly after ICE WATERFALL, we strongly recommend you to avoid going to summit without one day acclimatization. The atmosphere of Damavand lead you and tempt visitors then they ignore safety recommendations, Let me be honest, YOU MAY DIE,, please be safe to have one more chance to visit other places in the world

3 - DO NOT TRUST YOUR ELECTRONIC DEVICES, Many lives lost just because they relied on their GPS devices. If you are supposed to hire locals or ask us to support you in this program, we appreciate your patience to follow orders from our guides EVEN it is opposite of your idea.

4 - Carrying GAS Cylinders in your luggage in International flights are prohibited and banned, we arrange how many Gas cylinders you need in different sizes for your satisfaction, 110gr, 230gr, 450gr.

5 - For staying in Mountain HUT, you should pay cash. Also prices of Water and food at New Hut of Damavand or other Huts are higher than city. About 3 to 4 times more.

6 - Have enough personal equipment and support like hiking sticks, mountain goggles, Gore-Tex wear, Crampon, and enough supply of nuts and high calorie meals.

there are more points that we share with our clients before starting any program.
