    Sabalan volcano

    Sabalan volcano (Kuhha-ye-Sabalan) is a massive andesitic stratovolcano in NW Iran, 80 km west of Caspian Sea and west of the city of Ardabil.
    It is the second highest volcano of Iran (after Damavand volcano) and the highest peak in NW Iran. Sabalan volcano has 7 glaciers covering its flanks.
    Recent studies suggest that the activity of Sabalan, which had started about 0.5-1.5 million years ago, continued into the Holocene, which suggests it is still active.
