Damavand Acclimatization

In summer season trekking to Damavand peak is not difficult in technical terms. But physically it is a hard climb. The main challenges for this trek are Damavand Weather, sulfur smokes and acclimatization, the air gets thinner with less oxygen as you gain altitude. To increase the chance of success and lower the risk of AMS and to enjoy a safe trek to this peak it is necessary to get accustomed to this new environment. The best campsites to acclimatize for climbers who want to climb Damavand from south route are Camp 1 Polour Hut at 2250 masl and Camp3 Bargah New Hut at 4250 masl.
