For the night, we camp with the nomads getting ready for our next day adventure. We can also sleep under the stars.

Day 6 & 7Nomads' Odyssey

Today is the day of migration. Nomads’ day begins at sunrise. When we are with the nomads, we align ourselves to their lifestyle and their routines; which is going to sleep by sunset and wake up by sunrise. After a hearty breakfast which is typically their dairy products, bread made by oak flour and most importantly gi oil which they make it out of butter, the nomads start packing the mules. Then, our ‘Odyssey’ begins. We follow the nomads to accompany them in the unique experience of nomadic life. Sometimes we accompany the families, and sometimes the herd. But all day long, we can hear sounds of a thousand bells and hooves beating on the ground. We also have the chance of enjoying the scenic sceneries of the west of Iran. In the evening, we camp with the nomads somewhere in magnificent Zagros Mountain ranges.

There is also a small museum in the village where we can learn more about the nomadic lifestyle.
