Los 5 volcanes de Irán

Hay 5 cumbres volcánicas en Irán: Bazmán, Damavand, Sabalán, Sahand y Taftán. Todos estos volcanes tienen rutas de trekking y puedo organizar o guiar expediciones a todos ellos. Todos son estratovolcanes y están inactivos o extintos. 1. El Kuh-i-Bazmán se encuentra en la parte sureste de Irán, en la provincia de Sistán y Baluchestán. Tiene unos 3.490 metros de altura y se encuentra a 40 km al noroeste la ciudad de Bazmán (la ciudad grande más cercana es Iranshahr, al sur). La cumbre tiene un cráter de 500 metros de ancho y 150 metros de profundidad. Es el punto de montaña menos accesible de Irán. Recibe fuertes nevadas en invierno. El área está habitada por nómadas baluchis que viven en negras tiendas de campaña. El área es muy seca, un factor a tener en cuenta al hacer senderismo en esta región fuera de los meses de invierno. La mejor época para caminar a esta cumbre es en primavera. Para todas las caminatas desconocidas en Irán, visite mi sitio web .   2. Damavand es e

Iran and its 5 volcanic summits

There are 5 volcanic summits in Iran; Bazman, Damavand , Sabalan , Sahand and Taftan. All have trekking routes and I can organize or guide expeditions to all of them. They are all stratovolcano, all are dormant or extinct. 1. Bazman lies in the south-eastern part of Iran, in the province of Sistan and Baluchestan some . It is some 3490m high and is located 40 KM NW of the Bazman town, the nearest large city is Iranshahr to the south. The summit has a 500m wide crater which is 150 m deep. It is by far the least accessible mountain point of Iran. It receives heavy snowfall in winter. The area is inhabited by Baluchi nomads who live in their black tents, the area is very dry, a factor to bear in mind when trekking in this region outside the winter months. The best time to trek this summit is in Spring. For all unknown treks in Iran please visit my website   2. Damavand. For trekking to the highest point of Iranian plateau and the highest summit in Asia see ww

Archaeology, anthropology of Ganj Darre in the Zagros Mountains of Iran

If you are planning to visit Iran one of the areas you must see is the Zagros Mountains . While trekking remote valleys and settlements you will come across nomads from pre-historic era. This article in Nature will shine light on the authenticity of the area. All of the treks I guide and organize are in remote pristine areas of the Zagros well away from the touristy zones. You will need to be physically and mentally fit and prepared to trek for several days on difficult terrain carrying your heavy backpack. The reward is out of this world. https://www.nature.com/articles/srep31326
