    Sahand volcano

    Sahand volcano (also known as Kuh-e-Sahand) is a stratovolcano in NW Iran, about 60 km east of Lake Urmia (Azarbayjan-e Gharbi) and 40 km SSE of Tabriz city.
    There are no known historic eruptions, but the volcano is possibly still active and has probably erupted within the past 10,000 years.
    Sahand is a massive, extensively eroded calc-alkaline stratovolcano, and one of the highest peaks in the Azarbaijan region. The volcano contains numerous lava domes on the lower flanks of the volcano.
