When Senior Climbers Climb Mount DamavandFebruary 5, 2022
Iran always offers destinations that can hypnotize the eyes of travelers.
And it’s never ending to explore because Alborz mountain range has charming regencies that are ready to pamper your traveling desire.
Any time of the year, if you visit Iran, surely you will always relax on the beaches clad in white sand and blue sea.
Even though there are still many destinations that can make you fall in love, call it Qeshm Island with its beautiful sunsets and sunrises.
Well, besides Iran’s magnificent seashores, it turns out that there is another spot that can make your Instagram get thousands of likes because they will be amazed by the destinations you visit.
Its name is Mount Damavand. Even though it’s a huge mountain, you don’t need to climb the mysterious Damavand to enjoy its greatness.
Climbing is still a favorite activity for some people, especially young people.
The dry season is chosen by many climbers to Mt. Damavand. However, the current phenomenon is that many climbers seem to underestimate the use of makeshift equipment.
While climbing Damavand, wear boots to prevent ankle strain.
The dry season makes the temperature in the mountains cooler. In fact, according to the author’s experience when he was on Mount Damavand, the temperature began to drop by a dozen degrees after sunset.
In Damavand wear long clothes when walking and cover it with a thick windproof jacket when setting up a tent and wear gloves. Nutritious intake is also influential in this condition.
Next, climb Damavand wisely. Prioritize wearing shoes instead of flip-flops or mountain sandals. Because, in cold weather the skin will be stiff and more sensitive when tripped.
Physical fitness is the key to successful climbing. Do regular exercise for at least a month before climbing Damavand.
This regular exercise will really help maintain stamina and breathing while walking. If you don’t do sports long before climbing Damavand then don’t force the situation.
