Climbing Karkas Mountain
Karkas mountain is located near Natanz, a city in Isfahan province. the city is almost 1.5 hours drive form Isfahan city center. Almost 130 km.This area is about 300 thousand hectares containing more than 15 peaks above 3 thousand. Some parts of the area is highly watched and protected and is considered as a wildlife refugee where we see some types of mammals,predators like wolfs,leapard and some kind of reptiles and also Rodents especially a big population of hamsters.
We'll provide a vehicle depending on the size of the group 4-20 people.We start our journey from Isfahan city hall 6 hours before the sunset,when we're in Natanz city it's almost 3.5 hours before the sunset, at this time we continue our way to a village called Oreh or Tame (Two different villages) again depending on the people and their climbing experiences. whe we're in the village, we again continue our way to reach the last spot until where we can drive our cars, here we start our track until we have half an hour to the sunset. Right before the sunset we must have finished setting up our camps and find a good place to see the sunset. In this camp,we'll spend the night. form our camp to the summit is almost 6 hours conituise treck to the summit.We aim to reach the peak when the sun is in the highest point of the sky (sometime around 13:00). During our long track to the summit,we'll have some short stops (5-10 mins).
In the summit
After taking a nice group photo and eating lunch we'll rest for 1 or 2 hours before going back to the camp. at 15:00, we start descending and we hope to reach our camp in 2 hours. Back to our camp,we will rest for another 1 hour drinking tea and coffee. another 2 hours treck is our last challenge to go back happy and proud to our homes.I belive that we'll back home at around 21:00.
