Damavand is a mountain in northern Iran, which is the highest peak in Iran and the Middle East with a height of 5610 meters and the tallest volcano in Asia. Damavand is located in the central part of the Alborz mountain range in the south of the Caspian Sea. This mountain can be seen from the cities of Tehran, Varamin, Qom as well as the southern shores of the Caspian Sea when the weather is clear and sunny. This mountain has been one of the four valuable areas in terms of environmental protection since 2002 as a “national natural monument”.
