Explore the Shahan Kouh
The highest mountain peak in Isfahan Province, Shahan Kuh, stands at an elevation of 4040 meters above the see level. It is the jewel on the crown of the abundant natural attractions in Feraydun Shahr, in the southwest of the Province. This is a highly popular destination for mountaineering, consisting of vast snow-clad mountains that stretch 43 kilometers from Vahargan Valley (in the north-west) to Meydanak Valley (in the south-east).
Probably the best trail to the summit of Shahan Kouh starts from Sardab village, on the east of the mountain, offering breathtaking views of the surrounding grasslands and plains. Abundant flora grows along the side of the mountain in spring, and the meadows of the mountain are coated with medicinal plants. Additionally, several rivers originate from here. The snow-laden mountain is difficult to climb in winters, but summer days are ideal for hiking. This mountain is well worth the ascend if you feel up to the challenge.
The most accessible route to the peak is through Cheshmeh Sardab road. To reach Sardab village, your driving tour starts from Isfahan. About 20 km after Daran, there is an 18-km by-road to Fereydun Shahr. You will pass the villages of Sibak, Nehzat-abad and then Meydanak. From here, there is some 5 km to the villages of Sardab-e Paein and Sardab-e Bala
