Sabalan Climbing Notes
Mohammad Reza Safavi from IRAN, ISLAMIC REPUBLIC OF writes:
Sabalan peak is one the most beautiful mountains around the world because of its little lake on its summit. 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.
See you in Sabalan or Savalan (an Azeri pronunciation).
