Damavand in Winter

Damavand volcano is an excellent symmetrical cone with a narrow summit. It looks like Mount Fuji (Fujiyama) in Japan. Snow covers Damavand in winter and the summit is snow-capped several months a year. But only the upper parts are white in spring and autumn. Ice and hardened-snow remain on Damavand Glaciers on the north face all the year. Damavand  lies about 80 kilometers driving distance north-east of Tehran in the northern Persian plateau. This giant white summit and its beautiful cloud cap are the most fascinating sight of Iran mountains.
