Dear Hassan, Dear Rasoul,
We've had wonderful time here at Damavand and it was all because of you, your hospitality and your kindness.
There is so much positive energy around you. If you ever happen to visit the Czech Republic, please do not hesitate to contact us. You can find our video and pictures from our Damavand adventure at: www.dismanteam.com
We wish you all the best and hope to see you soon again!
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
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 !
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.
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💖
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
