Tashkooh or Fiery Mount is a mountain located in the east of Ramhormoz in Khuzestan province, southwestern Iran.

Tashkooh, which is also called Atashkooh (literally Fire Moumtain), is known for its permanent flames. The mount is one of the tourist attractions of Khuzestan province that is registered as a national heritage.

According to experts, this mount is always fiery because of the sulfur vapors rising from the porous layer of mountain surface. At night, its light is more visible. The interesting point is that due to the existence of gas in the air, you cannot light a fire near the mount.

Here are photos of the mountain retrieved from various sources:
