South Routes Physical difficulty

Alpine style trekking up to 1400 m vertical in a day. Climbs involving 1400 m+ of vertical climbing above 4000 meters. The south route is famous for its non-technical mild slopes, ascend to the peak is technically easy but physically moderate and this level demand that you should be fit enough and really in good shape, the main challenge is acclimatization and weather. There is 5 to 8 hours day-trek with big ascents and 3 to 4 hours descents. Preliminary trekking/mountaineering experience is a big advantage.

Note that during some days in the tour, you may personally carry your baggage, which is naturally an additional difficulty. No rock/ice climbing experience is needed in summer.

Changing weather conditions even in the middle of summer play an important role when trekking. In summer trekking, Damavand difficulty and climbing grade is similar to Mt Kilimanjaro in Tanzania and Mt Everest Base Camp in the Himalayan, but in winter condition it is a complete different story and it can be compared to a 7000 meters summit. Keep in mind that even in summer a successful climb is possible only in a good weather and correct timing. Off-season mountaineering specially in bad weather is very hard and dangerous.
