We loved being here in this amazing landscape and beautiful mountains!
But what made it the best and even more special?
The people with whom we were together the last days!
You did a great job arranging everything on short notice from accommodation to fantastic food and transportation!
Thank you very much for everything to the whole Damavand Team, especially Rasoul, Majid, Farshid, Alireza and Hassan!

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.
The most important thing in the mountains for me is feeling safe and you did a great job. I felt not only safe but I trusted you.
Even I put my feet where you put :)
Anyways thanks a lot for trip, food and delicious tea and coffee :)
Hope to see you again :)
And of course I can recommend you and your trip!

Thank you Majid and Rasoul for all the help.
We are having the best time in Iran! Mount Damavand is very beautiful and I would recommend everyone to come and see themselves :)

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.
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.
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.

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 !
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

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
