Mount Damavand in Winter

Damavand volcano is an excellent symmetrical cone with a narrow summit. It looks like Mount Fuji (Fujiyama) in Japan. In winter snow covers Damavand and the summit remains with snow-cap several months a year, the upper parts are snowy in spring and autumn. On the north face ice and hardened-snow remain on Damavand Glaciers all the year.  Damavand  lies about 80 kilometers driving distance north-east of Tehran. The white summit and its beautiful cloud cap are the most fascinating sight of Iran mountains.

Mount Damavand
Mount Damavand is a silent volcano located in Alborz Range .On most days of the year in clear condition the summit can be seen not only from Tehran but also far from 150 kilometers away . it looks like Fujiyama in Japan but much greater . I believe that its snowy white top with its regular clouds is the most beautiful sight of Iran . There has been no eruption of Damavand in historical times and records so it is regarded as extinct 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 5000 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 of Damavand is very extensive , a big panorama of mountains and valley covering many hundred of square Kilometers . All around are other peaks of the Alborz range, in the north to the Caspian Sea plain and in the south descending to the deserts of central of Iran . In fact it is the not only the highest peak in Iran , but also the highest in Middle East and the highest if you travel from Europe eastward to Iran .
