Shah Alborz is a mountain peak in Alborz range in Iran. At an elevation of 4,200 metres (13,800 ft) it is the highest peak in the range. Its north face rises from the Alamout valley, to the south lies the Taleghan Valley and to the west, the plains of east-Ghazvin. Parts of the north face are covered by the Shah Alborz glacier at elevations of 3,400 to 3,600 metres (11,200 to 11,800 ft).
The level of difficulty is “walk-up” and the nearest center is Taleghan. The best months to climb the mountain are from March to September. The most often-used route to the peak passes through the Hasanjoon valley.
