Visitor Reviews of Mount Damavand
Behzad Karimmaslak from Iran writes:
I have climbed to Damavand summit from all four main routes but I prescribed for mountaineers that they want to climb for the first time to any route they must have a coach or a very experienced man in his / her team and have accommodated with physical readiness then start to climbing as example 'the eastern route' have the most climbing distance and also in foggy climates the most danger is to be thrown off to 'Yakhar valley'. 'The northern route' program it is better to reach '5000 Shelter'. The end shelter in the first time and have enough water and also have crampon for transferring the glassier. The western route has the most slope and danger of throwing rocks and needs the most physical readiness at the end. 'The southern route' has the most visitors/climbers so it needs preparations to reserve a bed via net.
