Serious mountaineers find expeditions to Persia’s first class trails of more than 80 mountains with over 4,000 meter, a real thrilling experience. From the two major ranges of Zagros and Alborz, as well as other minor ranges and isolated mountains, Mt Damavand standing at 5671 meters above sea level is the highest summit and most appealing. Besides Damavand, a popular region, involving climbing with technicality and difficulty level ranked as "high", is Alam Kuh at Takht-e Soleiman region.
