Alamkooh, the second highest peak in Iran, is one of the peaks of the Takht-e-Soleiman Mountains range in Alborz with a unique ecosystem, comprising of a diversity of plant and animal species which is due to the significant difference in altitude and presence of numerous valleys and slopes. The occurrence of some endemic species is an important characteristic of this mountain. The presence of peaks 4000 meters above sea level, natural glaciers and snowflakes, granite gorges, grasslands and forest slopes are the highlight attractions of Alamkooh. The existence of rangeland species and unique landscapes as well as the availability of other potential natural resources have provided good conditions for range management, beekeeping, tourism and mountaineering. However, Alamkooh is currently encountered with injuries and dangers including road construction and overexploitation of medicinal plants, as well as tourism and mountaineering, which is incompatible with the natural environment.
