Mountaineers Satyarup Siddhanta and Mousumi Khatua created history by climbing Asia's highest volcanic peak Mount Damavand in Iran. 

Mount Damavand is the highest peak and also a potentially active volcano. 

The expedition team comprised of three members, Siddhanta, Mousumi and Bhaswati Chatterjee. 

According to a release, the trio left for Iran on 6th of this month, the team had to scale the summit within a very short span of time to avoid the Sulphur exposure related hazards. 

Mountain Damavand is known for its Sulphur discharge near its peak which can cause irreparable damage if exposed for a longer duration. 
 
This is the fourth volcanic summit for Siddhanta. The 35-year-old is now targeting scaling three more volcanic peaks by January next year. 

He is now in the last lap of climbing the highest volcanoes of each of the continents known as climbing the 7 volcanic summits.
