The Karoon River, is one of the longest and most saturated rivers of Iran. It originates from the springs present in the skirts of the Vank and Zard Kooh Mountains in the village of Shurab, 91 km. from Shahr-e- Kord. With the name of Ab-e-Koohrang, it flows along the western valley of the Zard Kooh Mountains towards the south west. Entering into the Koohrang Dam Lake, a part of the water is channeled through a tunnel in the mountains, to the source of the Zayandeh Rood River, and another part, crosses the dam, and after following a long distance in the western valley of the Zard Kooh Mountains, and before entering Khuzestan, joins the Khersan River
