Sorkhab the Great and Sorkhab the Small are a couple of jagged peaks that rise in the Central Alborz Mountains of northern Iran. To the north, the slopes of these peaks drop down to the bottom of one of the branches of the Chalus River Valley. Impressive walls can be found just below the summits. To the south, steep scree slopes that are covered by bands of cliffs drop to one of the branches of Varengeh Rood River Valley. To the east, the peaks are connected to the 3845 m Sootak the Small Peak and to the west, they connect to the 3614 m Doonay Peak.

Although the Sorkhab Peaks are lower than many of their nearby mountains, their jagged appearance and brilliant yellowish/red slopes give them much prominence among the local peaks.

For more information about the area, see the page for Sootak the Small.
