- A year ago it was decided but on 6th of August it was accomplished. Mount Damavand was the host of members of tourist guide association the presence of members from provinces that are always supportive of the association was impressive. Tourist guides from provinces such as Markazi, Ardebil, Tehran, Qom, Qazvin, Isfahan, Hamedan, Khouzestan, Fars, Yazd, East Azarbayjan, Alborz and Gilan had gathered together to set foot on top of Iran. They had a goal greater than ascending. All at once cried out and hand in hand decided to accomplish the goals of 2017 tourist guides convention as well as possible.
34 allies had come together and 24 of them set foot on mount Damavand summit. 15 members had this pleasant experience for the first time. What was interesting was that 3 members were actually beginners and their very first mountain climbing experience was climbing mount Damavand. What a beautiful first experience indeed! We shall not ignore women climbers whose presence was both an honor and a representation of the ambitious characteristic of the group. With a company including 6 of them and 3 of them getting successful in making it to the Damavand summit a lasting memory was created.
The main reason of this ascension to Damavand was to support the international convention of tourist guides in 2017 in Iran. For this reason a banner with the campaign slogan and logo on it was flown at an altitude of 5671 meters.
Iran; friendly faces, open arms,
Ancient cultures, timeless charms
