Zagros mountain range is the second-highest range of mountains in Iran which presents a natural barrier for Bakhtiari nomads on their seasonal migration between their winter and summer settlements in Khuzestan and Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari in Isfahan provinces.
Many of the nomads seasonally settle inside the foothills of this giant. Their tents can be found scattered all around the Poshtkuh area. The area is also famous for some of the most beautiful villages in Iran that nomads from the past decided to permanently settle in.
In this Isfahan tour, you will see a little bit of everything in the Poshtkuh area. You will visit nomads and sleep in their tent to witness traditional Bakhtiari way of life. In addition, you will visit the museum and Eco center Khuye to see how a group of enthusiasts run a sustainable tourism project of preserving the nomadic tradition.

In the morning we will pick you up from your hotel in Tehran or Isfahan at 6:00 A.M and drive to Aligoudarz district to reach Absefid waterfall. We will have breakfast on the way. After a 5-hour drive, we will visit the stunning waterfall of Absefid (which means “white water” in Persian) with 70m in height.
Then, we will continue the road through Ghalikouh Mountain to Baznavid (30-minute drive) and then stop by an ancient cemetery in which there are lion statues on the graves of courageous men.
There is a 15-minute drive after Baznavid and around 2:30 P.M we will reach the family of nomads that will host us for the night. We will use our time with them to witness their daily routine of collecting wood, gathering and milking sheep, and preparing a fire for making bread. The night we sleep in the million stars hotel or inside the nomadic tent.
Enjoy the morning in beautiful green pastures shepherding the herd. Nomads usually wake up at 6:00 A.M to go shepherding. We can accompany them to the surrounding mountains or plains until 7 A.M.
We will have breakfast at 8 A.M. Afterwards, we leave the nomadic village and continue our way through Poshtkuh protected area. We will see woodlands of oak trees.
On our way, we will stop by some off-the-beaten-track villages like Chin where some Bakhtiyari nomads have settled down. Visiting the settled nomads in old, simple village houses in a remote mountain area would be such a new experience for those who are used to living in cities.
Our next destination is Khoyeh village where we are going to have lunch in a typical village house with a view of imposing mountains. Khoyeh is an organic village with different fruit gardens; peach, tomato, apricot, eggplant, pepper, and also wheat. All of them are produced with no chemical fertilizer. So, here is our chance to have healthy delicious food. The evening is yours to explore the village and see the watermill. While you are going through the village, you will see women spinning thread, weaving handicrafts, milking the livestock, and men insulating the roofs with traditional methods and doing gardening.
The night we will be in a rural home-stay in the village where we are going to know more about their culture and way of life.
This morning we have our chance to experience once-in-a-lifetime sunrise while we are standing on a balcony. Today, we will start the day’s hike from the village toward the picturesque village of Sar Aqa Seyyed, which is a stepped Village. We will pass the irrigated farms then continue through the trail of nomad’s migration. At the beginning of our hike towards the picturesque village of Sar Agha Seyed, we stop by a waterfall that fiercely comes running out of the cliffs. We will climb the mountain and walk down the other side to reach the salt mine local people have been using for centuries.
After lunch, we leave Sar Aqa Seyyed to go to Isfahan through Koohrang road. On our way, we visit Koohrang Waterfall, the biggest spring in Iran. In the evening, we’ll have our dinner in Shahrekord and drive back to Isfahan around 8 P.M.
