Standing at 8,406 ft, Mount Damavand is Iran’s highest peak. It is also the highest point in the Middle East and the highest volcano in Asia. It is known locally as Donbavand, and is located near the southern coast of the Caspian Sea, in Amol county, Mazandaran, 66 kilometres northeast of Tehran. Despite it’s true beauty, Mount Damavand is potentially an active volcano. There are fumaroles near the summit crater emitting sulfur, and were known to be active on July 6, 2007.
