With a height of 60 m, Sangan Waterfall is one of the more beautiful waterfalls in the Central Alborz Mountains of northern Iran. This waterfall sits at an elevation of 2700 m near Sangan Bala Village.
In winter, dripping water creates an ice stalagmite at the base of the waterfall. This stalagmite usually reaches a height of 40 m. Although the ice stalagmite is sometimes climbed, this is generally not recommended due to the danger of falling ice from above.
During the summer months, lack of rainfall can significantly reduce the water flow. The waterfall will obviously be most impressive after heavy rains in spring and Autumn.
If you want to see the Ice Waterfall best time is middle of winter.
Sangan Waterfall used to be a 3 hour hike from Sangan Bala Village. Due to the construction of a new road this hike has (unfortunately) been reduced to only one hour!!!
