Zagros Mountain, the second highest mountain in Iran, filled with so much charm provides a natural barrier for Bakhtiari Nomads on their seasonal migration between winter and summer settlements in Khuzestan, Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari, and Isfahan Provinces. This destination is in the middle of everything yet away from it all. Nomads settle inside the mountains and make their tents all around the Poshtkooh area where they used to settle down.
Nomads are a group of people who are migrating from one place to another with their family and belongings passing rivers, mountains, and hills. Almost most of them speak a language which is called Turkish and Persian.
Nomads are notable for their wood products such as carpets, rugs, handicrafts, bags, and clothes made by women who are wearing colorful dresses designed by gold or valuable stones or sometimes lots of cloves as their necklace. They wear several clothes consist of gathered skirts, long-sleeved garments and light scarves around their heads while half of their wavy hair is left outside. They spend a noticeable time taking care of the cattle and producing dairy products such as butter, yogurt, and meat as well.
