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. It is also slightly higher than Mont Blanc in the Alps.

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.
