6. Day: Pack animals or porters take over the transport of the large and communal luggage. Already well adapted to the altitude and again with moderate walking pace we climb to Bargah-e-Sewom hut, at 4,260m. Hm 1.230. Overnight stay in the hut.
7. Day: Bargah-e-Sewom hut – summit day – Damavand – Rineh: Damavand – summit day also starts very early. On a clear day you can see the lights of Tehran. After about 8 hours or more, we have time, we should have reached the summit of Damavand (5,671 m). The break at the summit and a magnificent panoramic view into the Elburs Mountains make us forget all the efforts quickly. At the Bargah-e-Sewom hut we interrupt the descent for a longer rest and a second breakfast, before we descend the last meters of altitude to the valley, recharging the “depots”. Hm 1.410 hut – summit – hut, Hm 1.230 hut – mosque Gusfandsara. Overnight stay in tent.
8. Day: After breakfast we descend further into the valley – at the mosque Gusfandsara all come together again, helpers and participants. We say goodbye to the locals and drive back to Tehran. Overnight stay in hotel.
9. Day: Return flight from Tehran in the early morning and arrival on the same day.
