zard Kuh (meaning “Yellow Mountain”, also spelled Zardkooh, Zarduh Kuh or Zard Kuh-e Bakhtiari is a sub-range in the central Zagros Range, Iran. With an elevation of 4221 metres, Zardkuh is located in the Zagros Mountains in the Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari Province of Iran. This mountain has many peaks above 3,000 meters and 4 important peaks above 4,000 meters. Klonchi (Klonchin) with a height of 4,221 meters, is the roof of Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari province and the highest peak of this mountain range. After Klonchi, the peaks of Haft Tanan with a height of 4,180 meters, Shah Shahidan with a height of 4,076 meters and Dozardeh with a height of 4,000 meters are the highest peaks of yellow mountain. There are some glaciers on the mountain owing to the relatively high precipitation, which are the only glaciers in the subtropics outside the Himalayas, Andes and Trans-Mexican Volcanic Belt Geologically. Zardkooh normally in the mid of winter is perfect for ski touring. plenty of snow, good slops and not very high mountains make this area an amazing place for one week ski touring.
