You will start the journey from Tehran with private vehicle to the base camp of Azad Kuh Mountain. First night you will stay in a camp at 2400m altitude for acclimatization. Second day there will be a long trekking (1200m altitude) to reach the 2nd camp close to a small lake which requires you to be fit for the climb. All equipment and food will be carried by mules so we just need to carry our day pack. We will stop at some good locations for photography and rest. One of the highlights in Azad Kuh trekking route is a vast valley with its own attractions and beauty comparing to other mountains in Iran. On the trekking route we will see different flora & fauna plus wildlife, once on the summit many mountains like Alam kuh (4800m) and Mount Damavnd (5671m, the roof of Iranian plateau) are visible.

In the 3rd day we will climb to the summit carrying water and packed lunch which will take around 10 hours. Total ascend is around 700m from the camp with steep slopes.

Last day, collecting our equipment we will start descending to the base camp to drive back to the capital.

Azad Kuh Mountain (4,400 m / 14,288 ft)

Azad Kuh is one the first ten highest peaks in Iran. The mountain is located in the central Alborz high mountains. Azad means free and Kuh means mountain. Free mountain might be a local name because of its cone shaped peak. Azad Kuh mountain is a giant and huge rocky summit risen in the Central Alborz mountain range. If you assume a line from Tehran to the north direction, Azad Kuh is located somewhere in the middle. In three directions of the summit, east, north and west it is surrounded by steep rocky walls more than 500 meters tall. In the summer to climb there is no need of any technical equipment.
