Photographer's Note

Alam-Kūh also: Alam Kooh) - Mount Alam - is a mountain in the Alborz mountain range in the north of Iran, between Tehran and the Caspian sea, forming a peak of the Takht-e Suleyman Massif. At 4,850 m high, it is the second highest peak in Iran, only to Mount Damavand at 5,671 m.
The 800 m high steep granite north face provides some of the most difficult and interesting mountaineering routes in the country and the climbs rank alongside major climbing routes in the European Alps.
In addition to local climbers, the north face attracts European climbing teams, the first known ascent being by a German party Gorter/Steinauer in 1936 up the north west ridge.
Subsequently French and Polish teams established other routes on the north face during the 1960痴 and 1970, these being multi-day routes of high Alpine standard and a British team followed in 1978.
The mountain range supports permanent snow and glaciers and although the southern slopes of the range tend to be dry and barren the northern valleys leading to the Caspian Sea (which offer the best approaches to the mountains) are wet and lush with vegetation.
Good season for many people around the world attend Science climb mountains to visit Iran
