Overview

Kooch Tour, A Nomadic Life Experience

Our 7-day Kooch tour has been carefully planned to make sure you get the most out of the Iranian nomad lifestyle. Think of it as a genuine cultural tour which will expand your view of a pure and original lifestyle which borrows its roots form thousands of years of close relationship with nature.

We start our tour from Tehran or any other big city of your choice where we normally take a flight to the south-western province of Khuzestan and its capital, Ahvaz. This tour is suitable for small groups and includes accommodation in nomadic tent, local guest house and hotel as well as flights, meals and transportation.

Chogha-Zanbil, one of the few existing Elamite ziggurats outside Mesopotamia is one of our first stops. Other notable sights on our way include the watermills of Shushtar and a stop in Masjed Soleyman, the birthplace of the modern day’s oil industry. We spend the first night in a small village called Fath Abad.

We join our nomad hosts on the second day where we meet them close to Zardeh mountain range. We will be hiking and accompanying nomads during their seasonal migration. The overall hiking we do on this tour will be more than 40 kilometers. It is worth mentioning that as we are accompanying nomads, we can not have a precise plan for our journey with them. Their plans are normally based on the weather and the preparation level of their livestock.

On the sixth day, we will be arriving at the Kuhrang county where we visit the beautiful and untouched village of Sar Agha Seyed. The small city of Chelgerd which is close to Sar Agha Seyed village is like a basecamp for most nomads as they would buy the equipment they need from there. Our sixth night will be spent in a hotel in the region, we also pay a visit to the nearby salt lake along with the Kuhrang spring. On the seventh and last day, we will head back to Isfahan where our tour will end.
