ʿAlam-Kūh (Persian: علم کوه; also: Alam Kooh) - Mount Alam - is a mountain in the Alborz mountain range in the north of Iran, Mazandaran Province, forming a peak of the Takht-e Suleyman Massif. It is located in the Kelardasht District of the Mazandaran Province of Iran. With an elevation of 4,848 meters, it is the second highest peak in Iran behind Mount Damavand.
The mountain range supports permanent snow and glaciers. One of the most technical rock climbing walls with an elevation of 500 meters is located in the north face of Alam kuh. Although the southern slopes of the range tend to be dry and barren, the northern valleys leading to the Caspian Sea (which offer the best approaches to the mountains) are wet and lush with vegetation.
