Kholeno or Koleh-no (Persian: خلنو ‎) (Persian: خله نو ‎) is a mountain in Kholeno/Azadkouh massif in central Alborz range located in North of Iran. It is located in Tehran province very close to the border of Mazandaran Province. Typical ascending path to Kholeno is its south face starting from Lalan, Tehran village.[1]

Ascent in winter is difficult from its South face due to avalanches.

Kholeno has two summits which the tallest 4375 m peak located at the north of the other with 4348 meters height. There is a dispute about Kholeno and Azadkouh, another mountain in the region with very close height, which one is taller.[2]
