Itinerary

Day 1Arrive Tehran, drive to Aligodarz, Baznavid Village

Arrive in Tehran and meet your guide. Your tour starts at 7 AM by driving from Tehran with a car. After 5-6 hours of driving we’ll reach and visit the stunning Absefid (white water) waterfall with its 70m high drop. After having lunch near the waterfall, we will continue by car down the road for about 15 minutes, and then we will start riding our bicycles in a slope down asphalt road. In 30 minutes we will arrive to Baznavid village. There you will visit an ancient cemetery known as ‘Lion Cemetery’, because of lion-like statues on the graves of the courageous Nomad men. After Baznavid village we will cycle for another 3 hours uphill and around 19:00 we will arrive Nomads black tent. For the night, we will stay with the Nomads and we have the chance to get to know them & their rich culture better. In the morning, we will have time to discover the area and experience nomadic lifestyle; making bread, milking, shepherding, etc.

Day 2Chin, Saleh-Kootah, Khouye

Today, we are off on a biking adventure. We are going to cycle about 40 kilometers in a dirt road. We will pass by few villages like Chin and Saleh Kootah. We will have lunch in the village. After lunch we cycle to the next authentic village. We will have our dinner in Khouye village, which is on our route as well. Night, we will stay in a village house. You will enjoy your interaction with the settled Nomads of the village.

Day 3Sar Aqa Seyyed Village

After breakfast, we will continue cycling to Sar Aqa-Seyyed village – one of the most wonderful villages in Iran where the yards of houses are the roofs of the others. There we will settle for the night. We will see natural salt extraction process near this village, and its fantastic waterfall. We will have lunch and dinner in Sar Aqa Seyyed. This village has always played an important role in Nomads life. Nomads pass this village on their way of Migration to get what they need for the days they are going to spend on Zagros Mountains.

Day 4Koohrang, Isfahan, Tehran

Today we say good-bye to the village & drive to Koohrang (Chelgerd). Along the way we will take a look at an ice cave named Chama ice cave (approx. after 2 hours of driving). We will see Koohrang spring (the biggest spring in Iran where an enormous volume of water comes out from one point). For the night we will be in Isfahan.
