Itinerary

Day by Day Plan

Day 1Starting from Isfahan / Komehr Village

Early in the morning we will depart from Isfahan and drive to Komehr village. After 5 hours driving from Isfahan, we will arrive at Komehr village. Depending on the season, we will have our lunch either in the skirts of mount Dena or Sisakht village – Then, we will go to Margoon, a beautiful grand waterfall with a height of 70 meters. In the evening, we will spend 2 hours getting to know the horses and riding them around. For the night, we stay in a cozy village house in Komeher village.

Day 2Siv Khalaj / Qashqai Nomads

In the morning after about 5 hours of horse riding we will reach Siv Khalaj and the nomadic tent belonging to our host. We will then get to feast on a traditional nomadic dish, called “Lay Polo” which consists of seared pieces of lamb/chicken cooked inside a pot of rice and lentils. We will set up our tent next to the nomads and camp in their pasture.

Day 3Horse Riding in Wild Pistachio Woodlands / Qashqai Nomads

In the morning we will have breakfast with the nomads and then ride our horses to Baneh (wild pistachio) woodlands. We will return to our camp site near the nomads.

Day 4Saying Goodbye to the Nomads / Kore River

In the morning, we will leave the nomads and ride the horses to Esfian. We will have lunch in Esfian and then ride toward the Kore river. At night, we will camp by the river.

Day 5Horse Riding among the Dunes / Jamal Beyg / Tang-e Boragh / Shiraz

In the morning we will ride the horses for 5 hours in the surrounding area and enjoy watching the sun come up. Afterwards, we will ride towards Jamal Beyg village and have lunch there and ride to Tang-e Boraq. Tang-e Boraq is an amazing valley with a rushing river and a canopy of trees tucked between the mountains of the Fars region. It is the perfect destination to go for a dip in the turquoise water and for the horses to drink and cool down. After visiting this valley, it is time to say goodbye to the horses and drive for three hours until we get to Shiraz.
