Overview

Stunning Nomadic Villages (3 Days)

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. Hike in the amazing nature or drive to pass the waterfall and salt mine to get to the picturesque village of Sar Agha Seyed.

Mehr als zufrieden! Waren vor Corona im Iran und hatten anfangs Probleme mit dem Visum. Wenige Tage nachdem wir uns an TAP Persia gewendet hatten, hatten wir das Visum in der Hand. Auch bei anderen Fragen oder Problemen stand uns das Unternehmen schnell und freundlich zur Seite!Wir waren von TAP Persia mehr als begeistert und können deren Leistungen zu 100% weiterempfehlen!

Patient and informative. 5star tour guide. We were a group of 4.Thanks to our last moment schedule we had not booked a tour. Tappersia was kind enough to let the local tour guide know and he was very promptly arranged to meet us for the FREE ISFAHAN WALKING TOUR. Amin was the tour guide. He greeted us warmly as we entered Chehre Sotoon palace and what started there ended up with it being the most interesting walk of my life. He was patient with our queries and waited as our mixed group which had people from Spain and Argentina with us.... As info had to be translated for them to Spanish. A free walk in any part of the world usually lasts for an hour or two.... Not amin he would treat all our doubts and questions with respect and answer them.... Ended up with the free walk lasting more than half a day. Will go with 4/5 stars for Amin.

Excellent and fast service I wanted to buy travel insurance from them but their payment system wasn't working so I used the chat functionality on their website, they got back to me within 15 min, they contacted me directly, sent me the insurance papers before I even paid and showed so much goodwill. I was really astonished by their fast response and great service!

Most relaxed holiday thanks to Tappersia We came to Iran in a troubled time so booked everything through Tappersia just so that we would feel a bit more secure but the experience was beyond expectations. I have never had a more relaxed holiday. Everything was already booked for us; we had a private car picking us up every time we changed places, offering tours and stops in between all this on a very affordable price and always being there for every question we had. Totally recommend!

Day 1

Morning

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.

Evening

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.

Day 2

Morning

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.

Afternoon

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.

Day 3

Morning

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.

Afternoon

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.

very recommendable

It was an amazing trip. We have been to Iran multiple times and were looking for a new experience to spice things up. This was a trip of a lifetime. I wanted to do the full base camp tour but just didn’t have the time and obviously was worried I might not make it all the way. I joined the family of Khorshid and Aref who had 5 kids. The little one was a teengager with some slippers who hiked the mountains with a pair of slippers. I left the nomads with such a pleasure as I was waiting for a medal at the end. Best trip ever. I will be back to do the nomad tours again.

wonderful experience

Gazing at the star next to the black tent was the highlight of the trip. I love how they choose the right spot to make the tent. Everything you need is just a few stepp from the tent. The family was friendly and easygoing. They cooked homemade chicken with homemade yogurt which tasted wonderful. The price is very cheap compared to other guides. Thank you for everything!

highly recommended

The people who work for the company are top notch! The guides are professional and knowledgeable and full of good humor! I had the chance to jump into the car with Sara and go for a stay with the nomads. And exploring the Zagros regions and states with a family who couldn’t speak english was a delight. All of the sights during the excursion were interesting and breathtaking. You can touch and see the life of the rural people of Iran. Do not hesitate to contact tappersia and book the trip. If you want to have the best time in Iran. I highly recommend it.

He made it unforgettable! The visit to sar agha seyed village and the stay at the black tent was truly magnificent. I highly recommend this tour with tappersia!
