Alamkuh and Damavand Ski Touring

Alamkuh and Damavand Ski Touring

$1 per person

Here we have Alamkuh and Damavand ski touring package. For this program, we will summit the two highest mountain of Iran Alamkuh and Damavand. Alamkuh Mountain is 4848m and famous for the big wall of its north face. Because of the big wall and the paths to the summit, Alamkuh became one of the most technical mountains of Iran.

On the other hand, Damavand is the highest mountain with a cultural importance. In Iranian mythology it is the place where the borders of the country are defined. Arash, the master archer, stands over this mountain and determines the border with an arrow. The program starts and ends in Tehran. At last, we have a one-day city tour of Tehran and the program comes to an end. Here comes the Alamkuh and Damavand ski touring program.
