7 Days Damavad

Overview / Services

Ararat - at 5,165 meters it is the highest mountain in Turkey and at the same time the symbol of Anatolia. The white giant seems almost unreal, stretching freely out of the vast steppe into the sky. More than 1,000 vertical meters separate it from the second highest mountain in the country, which is why you can admire an incomparable panorama down to the depths of Iran and Kakasus from its summit. For experienced ski mountaineers and winter adventurers, this region offers almost countless opportunities for discovery and downhill runs of all levels of difficulty. The diversity of this region is particularly impressive, which, in addition to millennia-old and glacier-covered volcanoes, also has a colorful city life and unique culture and cuisine to offer in a small area. For the locals, Mount Ararat is of great biblical importance, as Noah is said to have run aground with his ark at its foot. By climbing a 3,000m and 4,000m peak in advance, we will acclimatize well on site and drive well prepared to Ararat. We often benefit from the short distances, which means that we almost always stay in the hotel after the ski tours and can recover well for the following days of skiing.


Level 4: Strenuous
Damavand receives heavy snowfalls in winter because of its vicinity to the Caspian Sea. The south route is not technical and is an ideal route for ski and snowboard. Skiing on other sides is more difficult.
The 10-day ski tour in Iran with ideal altitude acclimatization on the Doberar ridge in the Alborz Mountains with 3 to 4 ski tours up to 4200 meters. The white volcanic cone Damavand (5619 m) is the main goal of our trip.
