Alamkuh – Hesarchal

  • Overview

The program includes Ski touring in Alam-Kuh (4848) that is the second highest mountain of Iran after Damavand and known for the difficulty of its routes. It is one of the most technical mountains of Iran with two usual passage of Hesarchal and Alamchal. What we have here is the route through Hesarchal. Hesarchal is a vast area in the altitude of 3750m that is the most common and at the same time the easiest path of ascending Alam-kuh. fortunately, Alam-kuh is mostly covered by snow, and benefits from amazing atmosphere. Ski touring in Alam-Kuh requires skill and athletes who want to participate in this tour must be familiar with ski mountaineering.

At the end of the program, to get a taste of Iran’s Culture, there is a one-day city tour of Tehran, the city that was the Capital of Iran since Qajars.
