It occurred to me that Sabalaan is exactly the same altitude as the highest peak in the Alps. However it is less picturesque and glaciated.

Hi there,
in august I´m going to visit Iran and and the ascent of Sabalan is one of my major wishes for that trip.
What other mountains in that area could you recommend for acclimatisation?

The shelter in question is not on southern side of the mountain but on NE side as is the town Lahrud, the starting point for going up. The climb is not so difficult but there are easy and less easy parts. However, the most tricky thing is orientation. I strongly recommend first goers to join some local group or at least load waypoints on their GPS. The road up is not obvious (especially when you start early in the night) and road down is even less so (in the lower part). As far as the altitude is concerned, my GPS (Garmin Fenix 3) showed finally 4830 m. The shelter was according to the device in 3666 m.
