If anyone is interested in experiencing and observing the lives of the Bakhtiari Nomads in Iran, I strongly recommend travelling with nomad-tours.
In September 2016 I was fortunate to take such a 5-day tour. My tour guide, Mohammad, and his friend Navid, both of whom are very knowledgeable about the area and the lives and traditions of the Bakhtiyari Nomads.
Our three days travelling with Nomad.Tours in the Zagros Mountains was a highlight of our recent trip to Iran. We experienced firsthand the world of the Bakhtiari nomads and the stunning natural wonders of the high ranges. Here, perhaps a million people live a nomadic pastoralist lifestyle, moving between summer and winter camps with their flocks of goats and sheep.
‘Authentic’ is a ridiculously overused word to describe experiences. But here, it could not be more appropriate. Be ready to be awed.
