Getting there:


There are several routes to reach the peak that the southern route (Goran Bolaghi) is the best one. You must go from Tabriz to Maraghe that distance between two cities is 135 Km and it takes about 2.5 hours. This route starts from Maraghe city and after 8 Km in primary route toward Hashtrood (Sar Skand), change direction toward the north. On the route toward Golan Bolagh, you pass from Karaj Abad and Kurdish villages. After spending a long distance about 41 Km in dirt road and asphalt, finally, you get Goran Bolagh.
