On February 1-11 we had a great trip in Iran. We received an invitation from Iran Mountaineering Federation to participate the international mountain climbing dedicated to the Revolutionary Day. Armenian Mountaineering and Hiking Federation group of 6 participants traveled to Iran. During these 10 days we managed to do everything possible. We had a meeting with the president of Iran Mountaineering Federation, went hundreds of kilometers into the depths of Iran, Kerman. We participated in the opening ceremony.

Thanks to Armenian Mountaineering and Hiking Federation, especially Suren Danielyan. Special thanks to Suren Stepanyan for hospitality, training, exchange of experience and for everything.

You can admire the steps towards the development of Iran’s state-level mountaineering. Hope, one day we will reach that level too.
