Mount Sabalan complete guide: everything you need to know about Sabalan mountain
Mount Sabalan (Savalan in Azerbaijani) is the third most prominent peak in Iran with 4811 meters of altitude and is located in the northwestern part of Iran in Ardabil province. Scientists believe Sabalan to be a potentially active volcano; however, there is no information on its last eruption. The sulfuric springs, hot springs, and emission of dense gases are signs of its potentially-active state. The lake located on the Soltan peak (the main peak of Sabalan) makes it one of the unique mountains in Iran. This magnificent lake is one of the most beautiful lakes in Iran. It’s nearly 16 meters deep and is frozen for most of the year. This lake alongside the peaks of Mount Sabalan and the natural glaciers attracts many mountaineers yearly. Soltan peak is the most popular due to its high altitude and its beautiful lake. Mount Sabalan is one of the Iranian national heritages.
