Mount Damavand may be little known outside its home nation of Iran but it is Asia’s highest volcanoe and therefore one of the Volcanic Seven Summits. It is a delightful challenge for mountaineers and is located north of Tehran, close to the Caspian Sea and dominates the Alborz mountain range. Damavand is with its near-symmetrical lines a beautiful and graceful volcanic peak that has lain dormant for 10,000 years. On reaching the crater rim you walk around it to the true summit and it is possible to walk into the crater. It is technically easy but demands a good level of fitness. Adventure Peaks has operated four previously successful expeditions to Mount Damavand.
Departure from the UK is now on a late Friday evening flight from London or Manchester.
