This summit with three other more than 4000m summits are alongside a ridgeline starting from Koloon Bastak (4170m) at west side and end to Sarakchal(4210m) at east side.
Laloon valley is at east, Shemshak valley is at south, and Daryuk valley is at north.
It`s south face is against to Shemshak and in the north face there is a saddle named Varzab which is located between Sarakchal at its south and Borj (4326m) and Kholeno (4387m) at its north.
From south it is connected to Paynesum summit (3350m) and Abak summit (3520m) through a saddle named Lajani. Lajan in Persian means a sort of mud and the name (muddy) is due to the fact that the area is muddy from a spring nearby.
