Damavand, which rises 18,606 feet, has been frequently climbed. The climb is long, but not difficult or dangerous, according to Summit Post. Due to its great height and isolation, the view from Damavand is very extensive; a vast panorama of mountains, valleys and a desert. Damavand is the highest volcano in Asia and the highest summit in the Middle East.
