The better way for direct rising to KallehSang is from the north of Souhan village. Also at the east of village are another ways for rising to Ziminekan and Marsangedoosh. In the end of climbing from each of them, it is good idea that returning would be done from another way.

But with attention to the difficulties of rising in rocky summits and problems of climbing in the landslip and rocky rims, it is recommended that the starting point, would be from Danehkhani valley in the western south of KallehSang and then towards the top of rocky peaks and continue untill Doojar saddle. For returning to Souhan village could be done from of Ziminekan and Miyanrah valley or Marsangedoosh peaks and from east ridgeline to the east of village.

For rising to the peaks of KallehSang, it is starting from the north of Souhan village. An olden path is towards the north in the ridgeline of Robaposhteh hill. Then there are many screws lines with high slope and in the top of hill, the way is straight and low slope to the north and we can see the southern peak of KallehSang and also the dam and lake of Taleghan in the south, as well as possible.

After about 2 K.m we arrive to small rocky ridgeline that its name is Kokalekan or Kokalekani Boor and then toward up and Derazchak hill. After about another 1 K.m we are in the foothill of Danekhani hill. The way is changed such as little screws and the top of it forwards the north, it passed from the west hillside of southern peak of kalleh Sang and forwads Danekhani valley and spring. There is a suitable place for resting and take water for continue.

From the source of Danekhani spring is high slope toward the up and the peak of southern KallehSang is in the end of rocky slopes which is very onerous climbing. Then after about 200 m. in the north rocky ridgline are the famous of two grand stone which are named DoborariDoosh. They are seen from west and east of kallehSang such as two persons which are leaned to another.

The movement in stones at the top of rocky peaks is very difficult and dangerous. Extensionally in the center of KallehSang arc and when we want going to the east, only one narrow way is for rising without technical tools.

Three peaks of the tallest summits in the center of Kallehsang

The Kalleh Sang tallest peaks are in the center and east of it. On the top of central summits forward the north, you can see the Central Alborz of Taleghan. In the south is seen the dam Taleghan and its lake, and a lot of villages in environment of it. In the west and western north, there are low and high KhoshkeCall pits and Rozhdeh ridgeline.

The summits of KallehSang were used such as monitoring palces in the past. It is told that there was olden stony crypt for scouting on the mountainous way from Souhan village of Taleghan forwads Aveh village of Alamoot and the north of country (Sehezar summits and Tonkabon city).

For going to Marsangedoosh from the top of KallehSang summits, we must descend to the east ridgeline towards Doojar saddle and then climb to the east for going to the top of Marsangedoosh peaks. For return to Souhan village, it must be descended from southern ridgeline to the east of village and its eastern sandy way in the Miyanrah zone.
