Economy tour is a budget friendly program for individual climbers who intend to share their Damavand Mountain travel costs with other hikers and to enjoy the aspect of being with other teams. It is designed to enable individual climbers to join other mountaineers keen on reaching the summit from different countries and climb in a team work with the lowest possible budget.

Damavand budget tour is financially cheaper compared to Damavand Private VIP Tour. Economy tour is not so flexible in term of timing, itinerary and privacy also it is not a full package tour. But despite its limitations it supports the necessary services for the trekking when money matters
