Experience the Qashqai nomads life
We can find a few number of nomads live like thousands years ago as their ancestors lived. About 2-3% of Iranian people are nomads. Some of them have been settled in villages but you can see some others migrate In their traditional routes. Their income is based on sheep keeping.
In this tour, we will visit, live, eat and sleep in a nomadic camping with a real family of Qashqaee or Bakhtiari nomads. These people as a major nomads of Iran are spreaded in Zagros mountains and have a long traditions which go back to the real Persians several thousands of years ago. They immigrate from colder or hotter areas to the moderate areas by the changes to the climate. They still live in black or recently white tents which absorbs less heat from sun, they mostly travel on their foots, use horses or donkeys to carry their equipments or children. As this type of life is affected by modern way of transportation, finding the ones with traditional way of life is not easy but possible.
