Zard Kuh is a sub-range in the central Zagros Range, Iran, with 4221 meters high, Zardkuh is located in the southwest of Iran. Because of too much rain, there is plenty of glaciers in this mountain. Zardkouh usually in the winter is a great place for ski touring. plenty of snow, good slops and not very high mountains make this area an amazing place for one-week ski touring.
