Alam Kooh famous for its wall. The fame is for being the wall having the highest altitude at base and peak, no other wall in Iran is located in a higher place than Alam Kooh wall.

    Alam kuh is the second highest mountain in my country Iran. It is in the center of Takhte Soleiman region with 35 peaks over than 4000 meters altitude.

    It has some routes with various degree of technical difficulties. The most difficult face of this wonderful mountain is its north wall with several technical routes which names are Polish48, Polish52, Arash, Golden Fall etc. The normal route to reach the peak in summer is on the south face of mountain which is named Hesarchal. Without any technical difficulty with beautiful views of region.
