The Zagros Mountains (Kurdish: Zagros - زاگرۆس, Persian: رشته كوههاى زاگرس), make up Iran's and Iraq's largest mountain range. They have a total length of 1 500 km from western Iran, on the border with Iraq to the southern parts of the Persian Gulf. The mountain range ends at the Straits of Hormuz. The highest points in the Zagros Mountains are Zard Kuh (4 548 m) and Mt. Dena (4 359 m). The Zagros region is an important part of Persian Gulf oil production.
