Damavand as the highest peak in Middle East with 5610 meters elevation, is one of the most popular ski touring areas in Iran for expedition trips. Also Dobarar Mountain as one of the nearest ski areas to Damavand gives us the possibility to ascend its approximately 4000 meter peak and prepare us for proper acclimatization to hike mount Damavand. Because all routes designated in Dobarar area is located in the North face of the mountain, snow powder is much better than Damavand, therefore skiing in this area is much more enjoyable. Iran Horizon recommends people how want to ascend mount Damavand to acclimatize in other mountain areas of Iran.
