Visitor Reviews of Mount Damavand

K from Iran writes:

Hi,

Our team bozboz-e-ghandi, consisting two person (me, the head and S, the follower) reached the summit at 12:45 on Saturday August the 30, 2014.
I think Damavand is a holly place and as you all know there are too many stories about men who came down from or went to Damavand and rescued this land (Fereydoun, Arash, ....) so I thought I should go there at least once in my life and now I am very proud of this.

I should state here that this site was a great help and I used the information about weather forecast.
