Overview

Paynosoom peak is one of the peaks in the Roodbar-Ghasran region  in central Alborz. It is located to the north of Mt. Abak. There are 3 villages around this peak, Shemshak to the west, Laloon to the northeast and Rooteh to the southeast.
The easiest way to get to the peak is to go to the village of Shemshak and hike up the Shemshak ski resort, and go a little bit to the left.
