Alamkuh Iran's K2
Alamkuh, The second highest peak of Iran after Damavand is Alamkuh, which is located in the Takht-e Soleyman area of Mazandaran province with magnificent views. Between this mountain, there are natural glaciers that survived the last ice age on Earth
In the warm seasons of the year, the overlying areas of these glaciers are gradually melted and create grooves at the glacier level. These grooves are referred to as "superficial grooves". There are places in this mountain where the snow is gathered and it feeds the fridge from the upstream, to these snowy places in the mountains of Alamkuh "snow bowls". At altitudes of over 4,000 meters in the mountains, there are categories of dispersed glaciers that have been transferred to these places due to the melting of ice. These dispersed fridges are also referred to as "glacial wastes".
The glider of the alam-kuh can be likened to the collapse of the avalanche, with the difference that the avalanche falls rapidly and suddenly, but the glaciers are at a very slow pace. After the heat season has ended, and with the start of the cold season, the glaciers are unlocked and the process of forming new ice masses begins again.
In the Alam kuh, there are huge pieces of granite stones that are separated from their original location and are located elsewhere. The only force that can accommodate these massive rocks is the glider of the mountain science. Even the flood of this region's strong waters does not have the power to carry these rocks.
These factors have made the Alam-kuh and its glaciers a very attractive destination for sporting and geotourism purposes.
The Mount Alamkuh has 47 peaks over 4000 meters, also known as the "Alpine of Iran". Several routes have been opened on the Mount Alamkuh, which can be found on the 48th and 52rd Pole, German pollen, Hari Rast and .... The existence of a granite wall with a height of 450 meters at 4000 meters height has put the wall in the hard walls of the world, which It has always attracted wall and rocky climbers from all over the world to the one of the most beautiful and most difficult walls in the world. Among the countries such as France, Poland, Italy, Germany and ..., they have been active on this wall.
The Alam kuh wall is composed of two parts of the north wall and the western wall, a Gorde called the Germans. There are activities on the western wall, but the highest climbs and paths open to the northern wall, which can be called the main wall of alamkuh (which ends on the summit).
The takht e Solomon consists of five large refrigerators, called "alam chal", "takht chal", "sarchal", "split" and "haft hoz". According to geologists (and of course, the climber), the ice float of the alamChal and sar chal, the 24-centimeter year goes down, which made the shelter built in alam Chal in 1363 become ruined and ten years more Did not live. The existence of shelter, also in the alamchal certainly makes the activity in that area, and especially the wall in the winter, two easy.
Rudbarak and Kelardasht are the closest cities to this area in Mazandaran province. Access to this area is possible through the Chalous road. Alamkouh is located 20 km southwest of Kelardasht and Mazandaran province. Kelardasht is the closest city of Mazandaran province to this region, and Prachan and Taleghan are the closest cities in Alborz province to alamkuh. From the north side of this mountain overlooking Kelardasht and on the south side, this mountain overlooks Taleghan.
Autumn and winter mountains are faced with very heavy snow and storms and the successive falling of heavy avalanches, and this situation continues until the spring of each year. In the summer, the air becomes more temperate. The wind often flies west of the sehezar area. Water is found in many sources in abundance. The mountain range like Sabalan has a large permanent glaciers that cover everywhere.
Going to this program requires a lot of physical fitness. The severity of the trip is 4, namely, a large hiking, which includes (the first day about 3 hours of birding in the middle slopes up to 3750 meters, the second day about 5 hours climb in the middle and high slopes to reach the 4850 meter peak of mountain science and about 4 The clock returned from the summit to the camp, and the third day was about 2 hours downhill to return to the car).
The southern route starts from Rudbarak, and after passing Vandarben, the tange galou and the Hesar Chal plain leads to the summit.
This is the easiest route to climb this mountain climbing climb. With full facilities including camping gear and climbing, you can scroll up to the end of the journey in two and a half days. Usually, from VandarBen to HesarChal plain, it takes about eight hours to climb mountains and camp overnight in the plain, and the next morning with a whale The lighter is going to the summit, which takes about five to six hours.
From mid June to mid-September, the best time to climb this route to the summit.
Another route that climbs to the top of the mountain is the northern side of the road, which is a hard and technical hiking route. This route begins from Rudbarak, and after Vandarben it is sent to the shelter of Sherchal, and then the alamchalks and the passage of black rocks from the east leads to the summit.
Alamkuh has a natural and very long wall up to a height of 650 meters. The wall climbers will climb it in August.
The wall has several paths, some of which reach twenty rows, and even the wall climbers of Germany, France, England and Italy have opened paths to it. For the climbing wall, you must reach the area called AlamChal after passing through the sanctuary. You can camp there and after a day of rest and air the next day you will climb the wall.
Note that wall mountaineers have a lot of tools, and they can use mules to keep up the climb and keep up energy. Note that beginners in climbing can climb mountain climbing paths, but this requires facilities and a mountain guide.
