Equipment Checklist

Iran Adventure Travel (Hiking, Trekking, Climbing, Skiing Tours) Equipment Checklist

When you are aiming for an adventure trip, depending on the time you go to nature and weather condition, packing travel equipment is one of the important parts of considerations before you start your journey. Here we make a checklist of necessary travel gears and stuff that may help you with your packing for your adventure travel to Iran, or even other countries. These kinds of travels involve many days camping, hiking, trekking, climbing or skiing (Ski touring, on/off-piste ski, backcountry, heli-ski, ski mountaineering). Please consider it is very important to choose your necessary gears depending your travel time to Iran (winter travel or summer trip). For example, if you choose a summer trekking tour of Mount Damavand, you do not need to bring Crampons. As a general rule, you should always try to keep the weight of your equipment to a minimum. If you have any further question on your packing gears you can always ask our support team or Contact us.

 

Please note that Iran is an Islamic country and you need to wear appropriate clothing which is all part of the experience when traveling in Iran. Please refer to our Iran Guide Information section on the “Iran Dress Code”.
