Makhmal Kouh, literary meaning velvet mountain, is an eye-catching and popular mount that dominates Khorramabad, the capital of Lorestan province. This beautiful area is located to the northeast of Khorramabad and is called due to abundance of small stones and flowers in the way to the same. Makhmal Kouh has a sedimentary texture and most of it is covered by moss and lichen. With the start of the rainy season, these grow on parts of the mountains where there is less sunshine and multiply into a green and black velvety texture.
