Damavand Eco Camp is the first and sole professional mountaineering complex in Iran. It provides Mount Damavand climbers a plethora of services for them to better and more easily climb this 5,619 meter giant. In Eco Camp, the services are based on sustainable development principles. It is thus in harmony with nature and benefits the local community.
The complex consists of two camps in the north face of Mt. Damavand. The Base Camp is located in Nandal village and is accessible via a paved road. Base camp is about 2300 meters above sea level. It covers a total area of 600 square meters. The camp offers an incredible view of Mount Damavand and is equipped with facilities including 12 custom made tents, kitchen, dining room, fireplace, arbor, garden, bathroom & toilets.
The upper camp which we have dubbed ‘Advanced Camp’ is located on North-East route. The Advanced Camp is located at Fereidoun Takht area, at 4350 meters above sea level, on the North East face of Damavand and thus serves as the second camp during the ascend for climbers.
