Why Trek Iran's Highest Peak?

We love a wild card and figured 8 intense days in Iran should fit the bill! What do you say to notch up some unique cultural insights where the guidebooks rarely go as you take a leisurely jaunt and Trek Iran's Highest Peak!

Okay, so it may be a little more than a leisurely jaunt - these out-of-this-world adventures are rated in terms of Physical Difficulty, Technical Difficulty, and Culture Shock. This tour tops the scale on all three counts!

Stunning Cloud formation over Mount Damavand

Your guide is a sprightly chap called Daniel. He’s part journalist, part photographer, part mountain goat and famed as a specialist in some of the most culturally challenging places on earth. His enthusiasm and expertise will guarantee you keep â€śpumping out the vertical meters”, as he casually puts it.

Think Like Rocky Running those Stairs!

To get the blood pumping Mount Damavand presents 5,610 metres of wild terrain. Its peak is your goal and you’ll have to acclimatise swiftly in preparation for a sunrise summit push, although we hope you’re not literally being pushed by Daniel!

On your way to the top, as you near the top third of the volcano, the trail gets steeper, snowier and colder and you're guide, Daniel gets distinctly more chilled as he reminds you the reggae mentality will take you the farthest: take it easy and slow.

Climbers taking a group photo at the summit

Along the way, you’ll encounter towering golden-domed mosques, hardy local shepherds will be on hand to sell you fresh goats cheese amongst their mountainous home - a landscape steeped in Persian mythology and folklore.

The descent requires real endurance but a natural thermal spa awaits your tired limbs, a treat from Mother Nature herself to reward your efforts.

Trek Iran's highest peak

While your body absorbs precious minerals, get a taste of the craziest city in Iran - the buzzing city of Tehran with its wonderfully hospitable inhabitants will be awaiting your tall mountaineering tales.
