Sahand volcano (also known as Kuh-e-Sahand) is a stratovolcano in NW Iran, about 60 km east of Lake Urmia (Azarbayjan-e Gharbi) and 40 km SSE of Tabriz city.
There are no known historic eruptions, but the volcano is possibly still active and has probably erupted within the past 10,000 years.

Background:

Sahand is a massive, extensively eroded calc-alkaline stratovolcano, and one of the highest peaks in the Azarbaijan region. The volcano contains numerous lava domes on the lower flanks of the volcano.
