Our Iranian friends sent us this video, a small film that is almost fully illustrates our climbing pregram on the highest volcano of Asia is mount Damavand (5 671 m).

In 4 minutes you can plunge into the atmosphere of this mountain and take a virtual climb to the highest summit of Iran.

 

 

The film was shot by our friend, he is Hamid Shafaghi - one of the strongest climbers of the country and the most experienced guide. He's mastered the shooting with the drone, and the music picked up exceptionally well...

 

 

The film shows all the camps and our entire program, day by day.

The idea of a trip was born for a reason. Nikolai Wasilewski, my great-grandfather, in the body of Russian troops was in the Persian land, fulfilling the mission of a military doctor. 100 years later, I had the opportunity to be in the Persia, now Iran, to drive on the same roads, see the same city, as great-grandfather, only this time mission is completely different, the ascenst on the highest volcano of Asia. Demavend (5671). The ascent was not so easy, altitude sickness didn't let go until the last rocky areas, a strong smell of sulfur, and at the very top of poisonous posts sulphuric steam escaping from the ground that give you extra power.

 Really happy that after 100 years of being in this region, you can feel piercing through time between generations and to dedicate the ascent to the great man Vasilevsky Nikolai Vasilyevich!

 PS: I Hope that all the missions in the near future will be only peaceful and informative.

Anastasia Kuznetsova: news from Iran, a lot of them and they are endless. Now I want to say only that the group was on top of the highest volcano of Asia Damavand in full. All alive, healthy and happy. After the descent we had a rich program with sauna, visit the local Bazaar and dinner in an excellent panoramic restaurant on the TV tower of Tehran.

  In general, Iran is a very friendly and diverse place. And it is waiting for us! Today, unfortunately, the whole group is almost gone (dare I say that we were good together). Today, the remaining participants will have to review all the fun in the ancient city of Isfahan and tomorrow for the flight home.

Anastasia Kuznetsova, guide of  the 7 summits Club:

 News from Iran. Today we moved from bustling Tehran in the peaceful mountains. We settled down in the shelter of the mountaineering Federation of Iran near the village of Polur, at an altitude of about 2200 meters. Above us hangs Damavand and beckons us to himself. The summit is now smoking, that is, the volcano lives. We have seen this with a dip in the hot springs in the neighboring village, which is located near geothermal hot springs.

 In the evening we were waited by a dinner of traditional Iranian home-cooked meals. For example, the main dish was a stew of beans and 10 kinds of local herbs. Now we are ready to start tomorrow to the base camp of Damavand at the height of 4200 m.

Olga Rumyantseva, a guide of the 7 Summits Club:

Today our group climbed to Damavand. For half the participants, this was the first experience of climbing such high mountains. But, despite this, we have climbed in such rapid march. As quickly as I had not ascended to Demavent, with any other group. And still Vitaly Dubinin had a birthday today. This is how originally he decided to celebrate it.
