Sabalan Mountain under heavy clouds (info on first page)

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The following article is directly copied from Wikipedia: Sabalan (Persian/Azerbaijani: سبلان) is an inactive stratovolcano in Meshkinshahr Ardabil province of northwestern Iran. It is the third highest mountain in Iran with a permanent crater lake formed at its summit. Sabalan has a ski resort (Alvares) and different tourist areas such as the Sarein spa. The mountain is known for its beautiful vistas, including the Shirvan gorge, where few climbers ever venture.

Located in the extreme north west of Iran, this is the country's third-highest peak. At 4,821 meters it is taller than Mount Blanc in the Alps. The mountain offers many attractions throughout the year. On the slopes of the mountain the mineral water from springs attracts large amounts of tourists each year; many have faith in healing properties believed to be in the springs. The nomadic people of the area live in small villages, with their round "Yurt" tents appealing to tourism. Sabalan is a volcanic peak, and at 3,600 meters you can see gigantic 'sculptures' which are eroded volcanic stone outcrops which resemble animals, birds and insects.
