Hot springs (spa) have always been in Sarein but the 1990s earthquake caused some of them to get colder or hotter. The water is heated largely by the Sabalan mountain which is Iran's second highest mountain after Damavand. Many tourists visit Sabalan. Its most interesting feat is the 'crater' top which contains a lake of acidic water. Sareyn is also very famous for its honey, again like the soup, many of Sareyn's shops sell honey which is produced locally by the Bee keepers of the area. The main language of Sareyn is the Azeri dialect, however Persian is understood.
