توضیحات عکاس
36º 22' 30.73" N 50º 57' 56.69" E Alam Kooh is the second highest peak in Iran ! (Damavand(5671m) is the first and Sabalan(4811m) is the third). Alam Kooh is sometimes been written as : "Alamkouh", "Alamkoh", "Alamkuh", "Alamkooh" or "Alam kouh". Alam means some sort of object standing straight like a flag The north face (a little toward north-west) is actually a giant vertical wall. This wall and impression of climbing it, is what makes Alamkooh famous and demanded for Iranian climbers, these are some correct details about the wall : There is a glacier names "Alamchal" at the base of the north face that slightly rises up to about 4200m. Then there is about 150m~200m very steep glacier (nearly vertical). And the wall rises up about 450m vertical granite rock up to the summit ! There are some rumors about this wall, one is "Alam Kooh wall is the tallest wall of Iran..." but I have to say these are some walls which stand taller than Alam Kooh's wall: "Dorfak 850m", "Yafteh 850m" and "Bistoon 1200m" the other rumor is that "Alam Kooh wall is about 800m tall...". Anyway Alam Kooh wall fame is not for being the tallest wall of Iran and it isn't, but the fame is for being the wall having the highest altitude at base and peak I mean no other wall in Iran is located on a higher place than Alam Kooh wall. History The Takht-e-Soleiman region was unknown until 1933. Douglas Busk, a British mountaineer, discovered and surveyed the area. Later on, Busk along with Professor Bobek made a detailed survey of this area. In 1936 the north-west ridge (called Germans flank) of Alam Kooh was climbed for the first time by German mountaineers, which was considered a great achievement among European climbers.
