Sabalan Mountain

Sabalan Mountain is an inactive volcano in Ardabil province of northwestern Iran. It is the third highest mountain in Iran and has a permanent crater lake formed at its summit. Sabalan has a ski resort (Alvares) and different tourist areas such as the Sarein spa. Even in June and July you may encounter snow at elevations near the peak. So if you are going to climb in these months you should be equipped with suitable equipment and warm clothes. If you want to see the lake un-frozen you had better climb it in the middle of Mordad (the 5th month of Iranian calendar-beginning of August).
The usual route for climbing is northern route near a city called Meshkin-shahr. During climbing you can enjoy wonderful views of this mountain.
