They were heading back from Oshtoran Kooh, one of the highest ranges in Zagros mountain range and known as the Iranian Alps because of its high peaks which are snow-capped all year round.

Bodies of eight of the climbers have been recovered. Efforts are still underway to locate the last missing mountaineer.

Oshtoran Kooh has numerous peaks with the highest, San Baran, at more than 4,000 meters above sea level.
