The Guide of the 7 Summits Club Valery Myasoedov reports from Iran:
Greetings from Tehran! The new group of the 7 Summits Club has begun to realize its goal, climbing Damavand. The band quickly acquired the name "Persian Cat", which we associate ... no, not with what you thought... look at the map of Iran, does it look like a cat with ears? ... Our dear Mariam told us this on a sightseeing tour. After lunch in a traditional Iranian restaurant, we visited the Golestan Palace. For the guides, this is an ordinary visit, we have seen it all many times, but for our dear participants, it is an immersion in the culture and traditions of Persia during the dynasties of several generations of Shahs. The palace is one of the symbols of the Iranian capital, and only after visiting it, you can say that, undoubtedly, it deserves such an attitude. In the evening, a welcome dinner was held in the Milod Tower, in the restaurant of another symbol of Iran. There was a closer acquaintance with each other in an informal setting. And today the acclimatization part of the program begins, we go up to the alpine hotel Tochal.
