Climbing Demavend: impressions and photos
We (Igor and I) climbed the top twice - on Friday and Saturday. Andrey did not reached the summit on a Friday and we decided to accompany him on Saturday. In general, the ascent is quite simple - the guides told us that we could go without them, there is only one road, so that we went ourselves. In terms of organization, there have been some delays along the route, but still within a few slow "Eastern" the passage of time. We like a refuge – it is very comfortable. All: electricity, water, toilet - at the highest level. Guides, Miriam and Mohamed, pleasant to talk to, but not really sportive .... Hotel became lower class than expected (breakfast was so-so), but it's still Iran. We liked that the head of the agency, Ali invited us to dinner at his home on Sunday. Very warmly welcomed, treated, showed how the Iranians live at home, meet their friends. We thank him for it!
