Mt Damavand South Route Campsites
Camp 1 Reineh Resort

Reineh Hut is located in Reyneh Town amd it is the oldest camp in Mt Damavand area, made in 1939 and reconstructed in 1969, since then there has been no major reconstruction in this building, this small old camp was the main resort for climbers before Polour complex campsite was made in 2004, Reineh Hut is losing its popularity among climbers rapidly in recent years.If you travel from north of Iran, ie Gilan or Mazandaran province, you may use this camp, but if you travel from Tehran you have a better option and you are recommended to go to
Camp 1 Polour new hut, which is a much better place and a shortcut to Mt Damawand.
