BABA Tour, Experience Nomadic Culture of Iran
Before we get to our beloved nomads we will first look over some pages in history. We take you to an important World Heritage Site called Tchogha Zanbil, a wonderful ziggurat made of mud-brick from Elamite era which is the largest and best-preserved monument of its kind outside of Mesopotamia. The next UNESCO site we visit is the famous called Shushtar Hydraulic Systems which is a masterpiece of human ingenuity and architecture combined with nature. Visiting these wonderful historical sites prepares us for our long-awaited days with nomads.
There is beauty in simplicity, nomads are the true definition of this phrase. Any visitor will notice dignity in their rough, overworked hands, and integrity in their compassionate eyes. You can see real joy in their children’s sunburned, blush faces and pride in their unshackled spirits. The vivid color of nomad’s shiny clothing is a contrast to our boring black, white and grey style of modern fashion.
These brave warriors once fought the predators with the same rusty guns they now use to protect their tribe. Their woolen black tent protects them from wind and rain like a caring mother hugging her children tightly. You will experience most of the things a nomad does in his daily routine such as milking goats, moving alongside shepherds and their grazing herd, baking special nomad bread and sleeping in their black tent.
