Interesting facts Damavand Mountain

https://volcano.si.edu/volcano.cfm?vn=232010


On 1 August 1999, a group from the Societe de Volcanologie Geneve ascended the ice- and rock-covered summit. On the way up the N flank they saw vertical coal deposits below 2,450 m elevation, reaching thicknesses of tens of meters. Above 4,000 m elevation huge blocks were seen that appeared to have traveled from ~1 km above. Just below the summit were large sulfur-bearing blocks that appear to be mixed with a clay- like material. Within 100 m of the N rim of the summit chunks of pure sulfur were observed. The circular summit crater was ~150 m in diameter. In the center of the crater lay a small frozen lake approximately 40 m across. From the N rim of the summit, an active fumarole could be seen to the south.

Secondly, the window period in which it could be safely undertaken is short, from the intense heat to the extreme cold and the fact that in winter it is flooded. 
From the moment the decision to trek the salt flat was taken to the day we started the trek only 2 weeks lapsed.We had to be quick.  Three of us met in a city somewhere in northern Iran and we set off one early morning to what we had decided would be the starting point.
The old Iranian assembled 4WD got as far as it could. We get off only to discover that the front tire was ruptured. The driver, an old friend of one of the participants is alone a…
