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.
Access should be relatively easy from the main highway east of Tabriz which passes to the north, or from the city of Maragheh located just to the south.

Camping is allowed every where. There is a hut in the area .
