The most common way to climb Sabalan is the northeast route, which starts from Shabil hot water in the south of Lahrud and reaches the peak by passing the eastern shelter. Start yourself from the shelter. The Alvares route to Sablan peak or the southern route is the most difficult route to climb the peak, which has no shelter along the way and even has large rocks.
