With an elevation of 4500m, Hazaran is the 4th highest peak in Iran. This mountain is located in the middle of an arid area, near the city of Kerman, South-East of Iran.
Winter is short and due to the lack of snow, skiing isn’t always an option With luck, snow conditions will be on your side. February is certainly the best time for skiing this peak.
The small village of Rayen, is the best spot for a base camp. Eventhough Hazaran, isn’t the best skiing destination in Iran, its ascent is definitely worth the try.
