    (Wikipedia) - Talysh Mountains

    Talysh Mountains (Persian: کوههای تالش‎ Kuha: e Ta:lesh, Azerbaijani: Talış dağları) is a mountain range in northwestern Iran and southeastern Republic of Azerbaijan. The range forms the northwest section of the Elburz Mountains, extending southeastward from the Lankaran Lowland in southeast Azerbaijan to the lower part of the Sefid Rud (White River) in northwest Iran. Few peaks rise above 10,000 ft (3,000 m) and the humid semi-subtropical coastal lowlands along the Caspian Sea, including the Lankaran Lowland, lie at the eastern base of the mountains.

    The maximum annual precipitation in the Talysh Mountains is between 1,600 mm to 1,800 mm, which along the Lankaran Lowland is the highest precipitation in Azerbaijan and is also the highest precipitation in Iran.
