Information About Mt Damavand Iran

Damavand Mountain is a silent dormant volcano. It looks like Fujiyama in Japan but much greater. Its snowy white top with its regular clouds is the most beautiful sight of Iran. There has been no eruption in historical times and records so it is regarded as extinct a silent volcano. There are some hot springs on its lower slopes like Larijan village. At the summit there is a crater about 150-200 meters across, with a lot of yellow sulfurous rocks and pumice stones.

At about 5400 meters there are also some sulfuric gas making a little problem for climbers. Snow covers the crater and upper slopes in winter, spring and autumn. Because of its great height, the view from top is very extensive, a big panorama of mountains and valley covering many hundred of square Kilometers. All around are other peaks of the Alborz Mountain Range, in the north to the Caspian Sea plain and in the south descending to the deserts of central Iran. It is the highest peak of Iran and Middle East and the highest if you travel from Europe eastward to Iran.
