Overview

Sahand is an eroded stratovolcanic massif in northwestern Iran, about 25 miles (40 km) south of the major city of Tabriz. The most recent dated lavas are about a million years old, so the volcano is most likely extinct. The area does receive substantial winter snowfall at higher elevations.
