Zahak, a representative of tyranny was wounded and then chained in damavand by Afridun also known as Fereydun or faridoon. According to one legend in our area, our tribe Afridi has descended from Afridun/ Afridoon. Afridun/Fereydoon is considered as an extremely chivalrous, generous, valiant and just warrior. During his conquests he would not pluck an apple from others' garden or take even small amount of salt from villages without paying for it just like Nosherwan the Just.

Beautiful mountain. Pray it will not explode and disfigure itself like Mount St. Helens.
