Mountain climbing in Iran - the contrast of the opposities.

Iran - many climbers generally do not associate the name of this Middle Eastern country with mountaineering or rock climbing. But it would be a mistake to think that these outdoor activities are absent or poorly developed in Iran. Iran is a mountainous country and you can always see a string of jagged snowy peaks on the horizon wherever you are. Iran is still a relatively new and infrequently visited destination for Western climbers. However, the country will reveal real treasures to those seeking new, interesting and untrodden mountain climbing routes.

The Alborz mountains - the main mountain range of Iran - are a serious mountain range with heights that are quite comparable to the highest peaks of the Caucasus mountains in Russia or Georgia. The highest point of the Alborz mountain range is an extinct volcano called Damavand. It is the principal and only mountain in Iran that really attracts the interest of foreign climbers.

Mountaineering in Iran, climbing Damavand

However, in addition to the classic ascent to this Iranian five-thousander, there are many affordable and very interesting peaks in the Alborz mountain range, almost for every climbing taste and preference: from simple trekking mountains, which offer stunning views of this exotic and beautiful mountain range, to serious rock climbing routes to jagged summits that are up to 4000-5000 meters high. The Alborz mountain range located on the territory of Iran stretches for 1500 km from the border with Turkey to Afghanistan, with the highest and most glaciated part located in close proximity to the Caspian Sea where, in some places, the distance from the foot of the mountains to the coastline is less than one kilometer.

MCS AlexClimb Mountain School and Bezengi Educational Center have been organizing programs in Iran since the beginning of 2015. Trips originate directly from Nalchik (Russia) or Tbilisi (Georgia) and pass through Georgia and Turkey, reaching Tehran and the foot of Damavand by 4x4 vehicle. The Damavand climbing program can be easily combined with any climbing segments from the mountaineering programs in Russia, Georgia and Turkey, of which the most popular are Elbrus, Kazbek and Ararat. Any of these mountains or all of them can be combined with Damavand into one program over 12-14 days!

We are pleased to invite you to participate in our unique climbing programs in the amazing South Caucasus country - Iran! Join our mountain programs!!

Our Principles

AlexClimb Rule #1 - Safety First

From the very beginning of our activity, here nearly 16 years, the first Principle of work of School of mountaineering and rock-climbing of MCS AlexClimb is the Safety Priority. On the basis of this Principle all process of training is based, all programs and rounds are developed and carried out only within this main principle. We consider that at professional approach to development of programs, at personal discipline and correctly put motivation - occupations by mountaineering and rock-climbing are COMPLETELY safe. And from the return - all troubles and accidents in our sport come from nonprofessionalism, from ignorance or neglect by elementary standards of safety, from irrational motivation, from revaluation of own forces and opportunities. All these prerequisites we COMPLETELY EXCLUDE in our work - ours Rock-climbing, Ice climbing and Mountaineering are based on one Principle - the Safety Priority. In rock-climbing, mountaineering and ice climbing, the Priority of Safety of MCS AlexClimb-is your personal security and comfort irrespective of, than we are engaged - we train muscles and we work technology of the movement in the sports hall and on the rock climbing wall, we make the way through snowstorm to top or we relax on golden sand of the Caribbean beach after hot day of trainings on rocks. The Safety priority - the main credo of School of mountaineering and rock-climbing of MCS AlexClimb.

AlexClimb Rule #2 - Leave No Trace

Closely interacting with Nature, working with the active programs in mountains, woods, lakes and rivers, we perfectly understand the importance of carefull and respectfull bahavior towards the Nature, for its resources. From the very beginning of our outdoor-activity we adopted rules of  Leave No Trace technique - the standard of behavior of the person accepted in all the civilized world in relation to environment and especially - to the wild nature. After all on the relation of people to the nature near which they exist, itself can draw dalekoidushchy conclusions on the relation of these people to... Where and as we didn't travel - we don't reserve any garbage, we try to reduce whenever possible our influence on environment to a minimum. We clear earlier zagryazyonny tourist parking of the left garbage, we take out and we take out to utilization places that to us other people left there. We consider that only thus, at personal individual consciousness of each citizen, each tourist, climber or autotraveller, we will be able to keep the nature surrounding us in its state, natural, suitable for life, - in it pledge of the healthy future for ourselves and our children.

AlexClimb Rule #3 - Sober Concious

The position of AlexClimb Mountain and rockclimbing School regarding healthy lifestyle is quite clear - we consider that only sober consciousness is capable to fill sincere emotions,  to sympathize, to enjoy life in all its variety. Bright various enjoyable life is possible only on condition of keeping the absolute sobriety and purity of consciousness. Any way of obscuring our perception of reality is intended to do harm to our consciousness and bring harm to our physical health, to replace the true values by false ones, to destroy us physically - to turn us into flabby, weak, senseless, gray herd with empty hazy eyes. We don't force anybody to our point of view, everyone has a God's gift of making his own choice and to destroy himself if that is what he wants... But in AlexCilimb Mountain Climbing School we accept quite certain and very simple set of rules: neither alcohol, nor drugs.
