Nice page so far with what you've got! I can't wait to see the route info. Very interesting peak in an area not well documented. Great job and good climbing to you!
Thank you very much for your vote. It had been 21 years since I was last in Iran. I always wanted to visit the area but up until now I had not had the chance to do so.
Great pictures! Nice Page! Does that mean you have returned from your Iranian excursion? I'm looking forward to more of these pages ;-)
Interesting mountains west of the Damavend just south of the Caspian. Good pix.
Thank you for your vote. The steep drop from the top of these peaks into the Caspian Sea is amazing.
Another nice page about not well known Iranian mountains.
Thank you for your vote and your interest in the Iranian mountains. Hopefully I will add a few more during the next few weeks.
Bah bah & aferim.
Adding another route or two at some later stage may be an interesting and worthy addition. Any map scans, perhaps?
Thank you for your vote. To avoid copy right issues, I decided to make my own maps (by tracing selected contour lines off of original maps). Do you speak Farsi?
Thats reasonable approach.
As for the Farsi, learned it for 5 years or so
at the Cultural centre of the I.R. of Iran,
here where I live.
Can read newspapers and make basic conversation.
Still very far from being fluent, I am affraid...
Very interesting! I did not know there was an Iranian cultural center in Zagreb. You must know a lot of Farsi to be able to read the newspapers. May be I should communicate with you in Farsi.
By the way, in summer of 1972 and 1976 (when I was in first and fifth grade), my family and I took a tour of Europe. We drove from Iran to France and onto Great Britain. I have spent at least one night in Zagreb. We had also discovered this really cute motel somewhere between Belgrade and Zagreb where some of the rooms were made in the shape of barrels or straw huts...Any idea where that might have been?
Nice work. Thanks.
Thank you for your vote.
Great page... nice to see some more comprehensive pages from this part of the world. -Tim-
Thank you for your vote. During the 8 days that I was in the mountains, I took hundreds of pictures and shot hours of film. The batteries and other supplies made my backpack heavier than it should have been!
The Iranian excursion already finished? I'm hoping to see more of such high quality pages from you ;-)
Thank you Kane. In some places, the slopes or the alpine tundra were so reminiscent of Colorado.
I have been looking forward to seeing the results of your climbs ever since you told me you were going to visit Iran. Well done!
