Mount Damavand Camp 3 – Bargah Sevom New Hut
Damavand Mountain 3rd Camp Bargah Sevom Lodge is located at 4,250 meters above sea level and it is quite close to the Camp 3 Old Shelter at 4,220 m. Damavand Camp 3 Bargah Sevom Hut was constructed on the south route for hiking trekking and ski touring to mount Damavand. Iran Mount Climbing Federation built this mountain hostel, and this resort’s construction was completed in 2009. It is without a doubt a good camping site for acclimatization and lodging in the area for trekking Damavand tours because it is one of the highest mountain huts in Iran and the entire world.

Booking Damavand Camps
Unfortunately, we currently do not have a definitive response about how to reserve Damavand camps for foreign mountaineers! Iran Mountaineering and Sport Climbing Federation has already stopped using the previous reservation system and plans to implement an online registration system. However, we are unsure of the timing and logistics for handling foreigners.
Especially for Camp 3 New Hut, booking a private accommodation at Damavand campsite during prime season might be extremely difficult. Right now, there isn’t a single person you should get in touch with to reserve a camp. Typically, Camp 1 Polour hotel reservations are made by Damavand tour operators by getting in touch with them directly. If you do not already have an Iranian tour operator, you can make a reservation at the Polour resort in person if there are any open dates.
The typical method is for tour operators to handle reservations (and not by individuals). You can pay your tour operator a deposit in advance a few months before the expedition to ensure that your reservation will be honored (if available). They operate on the principle of first come, first served during non-busy seasons! Mount Damavand.
Public Room (Dorm)
Both Camp 3 New Hut and Camp 1 Polour Resort’s public rooms (dorms) lack a reservation system. They just operate on a first-come, first-served basis all season long.

Old Shelter at Bargah Sevom in Damavand Camp 3
The oldest shelter of Mount Damavand was established on the south route and is called Damavand 3rd camp Bargah-Sevom old refuge. In the summer season it is too Crowded, therefore it is not an ideal place for sleeping. For your comfort and privacy, it is strongly advised that you carry and use a private tent. Alternatively, if feasible, take advantage of the new hut, which has been offering services to climbers since 2009 and offers also private rooms that may be reserved. Although you might rent a tent here in the summer and possibly locate some food and water, it is best to bring your own supplies. The new hut is quickly overtaking the old shelter/refuge at Bargah Sevom in popularity. Keep in mind that the final campground along the southern path of Mount Damavand is Bargah Sevom.
