From -20°c to +35°c in a trip! An amazing unique trip to IRAN include ski in highest peak in the middle east (DAMAVAND) and enjoy watching night sky in desert (MARANJAB). Mount Damavand is the highest ski area in Iran for ski mountaineering, ski touring and snowboarding. Damavand receives heavy snowfalls in winter because of its vicinity to the Caspian Sea. The south route is not technical and is an ideal route for ski and snowboard. Skiing on other sides is more difficult. Depending to the weather the amount of snowfall is different each year, the ski season may starts from mid November and last until mid May. South side of mount Damavand is not so steep. Also there is no crevasse in the region. But it is a high mountain, where the snow is wind packed and icy in its higher altitudes. In fact, you should expect different types of snow in different altitudes. We recommend ski touring of Damavand to those who are fit and have previous experience of winter ascents and ski mountaineering in lower mountains. Maranjab desert is located by the city of Aran-o-Bidgol, one of the ancient desert cities of Isfahan province. The name of this desert came from the Abassi Karvanserai near the Aran-o-Bidgol Salt Lake which was built by Shah Abass Safavi on 1603AD to protect the Silk Road. The beauties of Maranjab desert are vast Aran-o-BidgolSalt Lake with its wonderful Floating Island (its call floating because it is as if there is a lost ship in the vast horizon of the desert), huge sand dunes and tamarisk trees forest. There is a Karvanserai with a pool of water in front of it in this area which is a camping point of Maranjab desert. To enjoy the touch of the sands on your fingers while walking bare foot on the sand hills and watching the dawn of the sun among the Tamarisk trees and sunset far away, behind the horizon of the salt lake and unforgettable desert night ski where you can pick stars, stay with us in this desert tour package.
