Routes Damavand Mountain Q&A 1

Q- I read on various sites that the North Face is the most exciting side to climb or do you have other experience, is there other routes that are very good views and a little more difficult as well? From what time in the year would it be possible to do the North side?
A- We organize Mt Damavand tours for any Route, see also Difficulty for all routes. In any itinerary the safety and comfort of the team is our main priority. Read the Advantages of South Route first.

Q- Any difference between the North and South Routes?
A- Considering difficulty and climbing grades, there is a big difference between the South and the North routes, especially in winter and bad weather conditions. Our recommendation for ordinary mountaineers is the South route. Visit Difficulty and Climbing Grade for different routes od Damavand Iran.

Q- I think the North side ascent would be the most interesting option in May/June?
A- The north face is not recommended for novices in May/June because it has too much snow in that period.
