Overview

It is the hihgest peak in my province ( khorasan ) . Many people climb it in deferent seasons . Except climbing in winter , there is no any problem or hard route !
The Binalood region include wide ridge in south of mashad and north of Neyshabour.There is four peak in the main region, named Soozani 1,2,3 and the main peak named Binalood. Although there is several peaks in the whole of ridge .
In the winter the climbing need proper equipment and expert leader . In summer there is the shortage of water and so it's not usual to climbing. The best time for climbing is middle of spring for amateur and winter for professional climber.
At this point the Binalood Mountains span a distance of 120 km. and separate the Kashaf Valley in the north from the plains of Nayshabur in the south. In spring and summer this region forms an excellent spot , full of natural enhancements !
