Best seasons for Damavand cycling

The best considered time for cycling around Damavand is the late spring. During spring the nature is at its peak, trees are bustling with blossoms, the ground is filled with short and fresh grass, and you feel insatiable with the view. Furthermore, the weather during the day is sunny and delightful, with occasional rain, the nights can be a tad cold and cloudy.
During the summer, it is sunny and hot which can make it challenging to cycle under the sun. Moreover, it may be a little crowded at the foothill, especially during the weekend (Thursday and Friday in Iran). However if you don`t mind a little crowd and enjoy cycling in hot weather, during summer the beauty of Damavand and its surrounding nature is one of a kind and can be a memorable journey for you.
Early fall with its delightful, mild weather and beautiful nature that is turning brown and getting ready for winter can be a perfect time for cycling in Damavand too. Don`t forget to pack warm clothes if you are intending to spend the night.
The foothill of Damavand Mountain is quite dangerous and hazardous for cycling during late fall, if you have plans to cycle during late fall you must be careful with slippery roads, raining, occasional wind blows and snowing.

How long does it take to complete a Damavand Cycling tour?
Well, usually the time that you will spend at the mountain is about 4 days. It can be extended according to your physical conditions and physical strength.
Damavand cycling tour can be extended for you to see and experience the nature of Iran as much as possible. We can add Lar national park to the tour. Lar National Park is so beautiful and an incredible place for cycling, we can camp here and spend a whole day cycling the park.
