The Aladaglar is the Azari Turkish name of the rainbow-like mountains and hills in the East-Azerbaijan province. The Aladaglar rainbow mountains and hills are tucked into the northwest of Iran, 25 kilometers in the north east of Tabriz between Ahar and Khajeh.

Passing the city of Tabriz, an eye-catching mountain chain of the Aladaglar appears painted with hues of copper, red, yellow, green and orange.
