Нам посчастливилось быть гостями у Дамаванда с Mount Damavand Group. Это было увлекательно, надежно, безопасно и чрезвычайно позитивно. Мы любовались видами, высоко и далеко шагали с заботливыми, внимательными и компетентными гидами Расулом и Бахманом. Вершина порадовала красивым, живописным видом. На обратном пути мы любовались меняющейся погодой, а по возвращении в кемпинг нас ждали горячие напитки, вкуснейшая еда и душевные разговоры. Мы остались довольны, советуем этот опыт и вам! Спасибо! Настя, Паша и Ирина.

This is 11 October of 2023 and we were lucky enough to be guests of Damavand with the Mount Damavand Group. It was exciting, reliable, safe and extremely positive.

We admired the views, walked high and far with caring, attentive and competent guides Rasoul and Bahman. The peak pleased us with a beautiful, picturesque view. On the way back we admired the changing weather, and upon returning to the campsite hot drinks, delicious food and heartfelt conversations awaited us.

We were satisfied and recommend this experience to you too!

Thank you! Nastya, Pasha and Irina.

Tamas – Hungary

To reach Damavand peak is a hard, but beautiful journey. Atmosphere of Camp 3 is so unique. Thank you for your hospitality. It was a very good experience. It was a pleasure to be part of the family for these days. These are the memories we will never forget.❤️

Marius and Vytautas – Lithuania

Rasoul, Thank you for your help, it was a pleasure to meet you. Our climb to Damavand wouldn’t be so perfect without you. All the best from Lithuanian boys

Morgan – Australia

The best guide a gal could have asked for when she decided to hike to 5610m. He made me tea every night as I went to bed, and always cooked me so much food even when altitude had my hunger levels at zero. He gave me his light bag while he carried my heavy one, and massaged my arms when I lost all feeling in my hands. He laughed at my sunburn, and we both laughed at how he struggled to say my name. He took every last bit of our rubbish back down to basecamp, and told me on day two that Damavand had claimed seven lives this year. He gave me extra warm clothes, and tucked me into bed with a double sleeping bag. But my favourite bit was that he never doubted my ability to summit, even when I questioned it myself!

Joachim Jakobi – Germany

A German from the Eifel came after a chaotic journey to Rineh, meets Rasoul and a little later everything was forgotten. The Iranians are so cordial without being intrusive. Was now the 2nd time here in the country, I feel very well again. Many thanks to Rasoul and his father for good service and food.


Dear Team of Camp 1! Thank you very much for your great hospitality! And thank you very much for your support during our sea to summit project. We will send you the link to the movie! All the best, Matheo, Dario, Beni, Alex, David
David Kaszlikowski – SEA TO SUMMIT IN IRAN

Big, sincere thank you for your help during April filming of Bene Bohm run from Caspian Sea to the summit of Damavand. As a one–man, summit cameraman I was immensely supported by Rasoul and his family. On the crucial summit day Rasoul was leading in deep, wet snow encouraging me to cut my rest-stops shorter, after all we were racing (with my tripods and cameras) against speed machine Thank you Rasoul. By the way, we had surprising hot day above 4200m which made my 4-layers trousers an overkill. Since it was my second summit in last few days, I share one word of warning: while filming sulphur fumes at the peak I got poisoned which resulted with lungs inflammation. Beware! Big thank you goes also to Hassan and Effat who fed me, watched photos, and were my advisers during my stay in Rineh. You have really great tourism potential in the village. All the best! My best greetings !
David – Germany

Dear Rasoul and Hassan, All the best for making our weekend trip a pleasant holiday with good ski touring, delicious food and superb hospitality. We definitely have to return to experience Damavand peak and many descends around Do-Berar mountain ridge. Servus, Salut & Ski Heil

We had the best Experience with Majid, Rasoul and the whole team during our Damavand Ascent. The Guides were Truly Professional and the cook Ali prepared fantastic meal for us both in the 3rd. Camp and in 1st. Camp. We are leaving this place with great memories. Thank you!
Abel – Hungary

Majid and Rasoul were so helpful. Rasoul reserved me everything, the accommodations, the transfer from 2nd. Camp to 1st. Camp and that was really good for me. Breakfast and dinner were so delicious, I loved it. Of course Damavand was amazing, the biggest adventure in my life. Maybe I’m coming back in the future with my family. Thank you!!!

Ieva – Lithuania

Rasoul, Thank you very much for the great climbing to Damavand. I had a lot of fun and all the time – how you motivated – I was happy.
