Some thing more which made this mountain unique and sacred ,that its believed as a place Zoraster was praying God and meditating there beside “Mehrab stone” (15 min before arriving summit).nowadays its so papoular among mountaineers to hike it up especially in high season(june-september) and not only for its amazing nature but also natural hot springs around it which you can take all your tiredness away there.
