Damavand is a city in and the capital of Damavand County, Tehran Province, Iran. At the 2006 census, its population was 56,315, in 11,279 families. 
Damavand is an ancient and historic city. It is close to Iran's tallest peak Mount Damavand, which Ferdowsi mentions abundantly in the Shahnameh. The city has relatively cool weather year round. Damavand can be reached by road from Firuzkuh via Gilavand and from Haraz road, via Mosha.
It was separated from Tehran County in 1946 in Markazi Province (Known as Second Province at that time).

Acclimatization day

Acclimatization day

Day2: Acclimatization day (optional) Today has been set aside to help acclimatize prior to tomorrow’s attempt at the summit. You may choose to just relax around the camp and enjoy the expansive views, or you might like to take a walk to the nearby Abshar-e-Yakhi Waterfall.
  Located at some 5000m, the falls are reachable along the southern route to the summit and present a permanently frozen 7 meters high cascade, that even during the summer months fails to melt (due in no small part to the icy winds that whip across the mountain). Dinner and overnight

Day 3

Summit Day!

Summit Day!

Day3 : Summit Day! Hike to summit (5671m), then return to third camp Today presents us with our most challenging day, as we attempt the climb to the summit. Starting early we hike up to the beginning of the ridge, before continuing on to the icefall located at some 5150m. The terrain is difficult, with loose rocks and scree and the weather can change at any time, so please be prepared for anything, even snowfalls in the height of summer. Some 500m below the summit we come across the aptly named ‘Sulphur Hill’ (Dood Kooh), where we can see the evidence of the mountain’s turbulent pass amongst the volcanic rock and sulphurous fumaroles rising up from the earth. Making the final ascent to the top we hope to reach the summit around midday, affording us an opportunity to enjoy something of the breathtaking views before the clouds cover the peaks (conditions permitting). From here we then begin the descent back down to our camp at third camp, a journey of some 3 hours that should bring us back to camp in time for dinner. Total Walking Approx 9 hours. Ascent/descent 1521m. Dinner and overnight.
