Elevation: This mountain, with an altitude of 4850 meters above sea level, is the second highest peak in Iran. However, it holds first place when it comes to the difficulty and challenges of climbing.
Alam-Kuh is famous worldwide for its northern wall which is technically like that of Mt. K2 in Pakistan.
Location: The Mountain is located 20 km southwest of the city of Kelardasht in Mazandaran province.
Towns and Cities Nearby: Alam-Kuh is adjacent to Kelardasht city and Rudbarak village in Mazandaran province and Taleghan city and Parachan village in Alborz province.
This Mountain overlooks the city of Kelardasht to the north, and the city of Taleghan to the south.
Alam-Kuh is surrounded by the cities of Chalus, Tonekabon and Salman Shahr to the north, by Chalus valley and River to the east, by the great valley of Sehezar (Three Thousand) to the west, and by Taleghan city and Alamut region to the south and southwest.
Features: Mt. Alam-Kuh is located in an extremely cold and snowy region, known as the largest mountainous region of Iran. The area lies between Taleghan Valley and Shahsavar and Abbas Abad forests. Most of the peaks in this area are over 4,000 meters high. Due to these features, the region is known as the Iranian Alps.
Alam-Kuh area, a large part of which is a part of central Alborz, has more than 47 peaks above 4000 meters high.
Alam-Kuh Glaciers: There are numerous glaciers in this area, including Sarchal, Alam-Chal, Takht-e Soleyman, Marjikesh, Khersan, Haft-Khan, Chaloon, Shane-kuh, and Split glaciers. Most of these glaciers are located at an elevation of more than 4000 meters high, in the middle of the granite peaks.
The characteristics of some of these glaciers are as follows:
Sarchal Glacier: This glacier is located at a height of 4050 meters to 4230 meters, between Sechal and Takht-e Soleyman peaks, and has a rocky surface.
Alam Chal Glacier: Alam Chal glacier is located at an altitude of 4000 meters above sea level. It is hidden deep in a ditch and surrounded by higher peaks and hence invisible from afar. The surface of this glacier is covered by crushed glacial table rocks.
Takht-e Soleyman Glacier: This relatively steep glacier is at an altitude of 4350 meters to 4655 meters above sea level. It should be said that the slope increases in the northern part of this glacier.
Marjikesh Glacier: This glacier is at an altitude of 4340 meters to 4500 meters above sea level. Marjikesh glacier lies in a valley between the Siah-Sang and Marjikesh peaks. Like most glaciers in the region, the surface of the glacier is covered by rocks, which is because of the crushed rocks falling continuously on the glacier.
Khersan Glacier: Khersan glacier is at an elevation between 4150 meters to 4500 meters above sea level with a relatively large width. It lies between Marjikesh peak and Alam-Kuh on the southern face.
Haft-Khan Glacier: It is located at an altitude of 3950 meters to 4400 meters above sea level and extends along the Haft-Khan pass. Some of the glacier tongues extend as far as Haft Khan Peak.
The peaks surrounding this glacier include Negin, Takht-e Soleyman and Haft-Khan peaks.
Chaloon Glacier: Chaloon glacier is located between Siah-Sang and Chaloon Peaks. The height of this glacier is between 3900 meters to 4200 meters above sea level.
Shane-kuh Glacier: This glacier is known for its proximity to the summit of Mt. Shane-kuh. It is also connected to Alam-Chal glacier and is at a height of 4230 meters to 4400 meters above sea level.
