    I climbed it alone. It’s a twin summit semi-active volcano,actually the summit is similar to Elbrus’ summit. One of them is higher without sulfur crater called Narkooh and another one is Madehkooh with a crater away steaming vents.
    It’s in heritage UNESCO site, unique and beautiful where has the best mountain shelter of Iran’s mountains (4 floor ) .
    All mountains around are less than 3000 m.
    It takes about 3 hours to climb from basecamp to shelter ,then 2h to the summit (Madehkooh)
    Just stay away from sulfur vents.
    Good luck

    Since Taftan is an inactive volcano, it has a solfatara close to peak.
    Be careful!
