Sangan Waterfall Location:
With a height of 60 m, Sangan Waterfall is one of the more beautiful waterfalls in the Central Alborz Mountains of northern Iran. This waterfall sits at an elevation of 2700 m near Sangan Bala Village.
In winter, dripping water creates an ice stalagmite at the base of the waterfall. This stalagmite usually reaches a height of 40 m. Although the ice stalagmite is sometimes climbed, this is generally not recommended due to the danger of falling ice from above.
During the summer months, lack of rainfall can significantly reduce the water flow. The waterfall will obviously be most impressive after heavy rains in spring and Autumn.
Sangan Waterfall used to be a 3 hour hike from Sangan Bala Village. Due to the construction of a new road this hike has (unfortunately) been reduced to only one hour!!!
If you want to see the Ice Waterfall best time is middle of winter.
in other times you can climb to pahne hesar peak.

Pahne Hesar Peak 3300 m:
Sangan Waterfall sits on one of the routes to the summit of Pahne Hesar Peak. This peak is usually climbed via one of the following two routes:
1) From Sangan Waterfall, find the ridgeline on the right and follow it up to gain the crest of another ridgeline (This ridgeline is more gently sloped than the other nearby ridgelines). You will come across several other routes here. One goes to Emamzadeh Bibi and one to the Khor Village on Chalus Rd. Turn left and follow the ridgetop to the summit.
2) From Khor Village via Chalus Rd. This route will not take you to the Sangan Waterfall.
