Overview

Zard Lime Waterfall, Exciting Nomadic Tour

Join our 3-day tour to take some exciting hikes in Iran. We will have the opportunity to visit Nomad families living along the river and spend some time near a vibrant waterfall on the way. 

On the first day of  the tour, we will live Esfahan and drive to Gazestan Village. Here’s our hike begins in the Zagros Mountains, a long mountain range in Iran, has spread over Iran, Iraq, and Turkey. This is the same mount Bakhtiari nomads hold their seasonal migration in winters and summers. The settlement would be in Khuzestan, Chahrmahal and Bakhtiari, and Isfahan provinces. 

Nomads put up their tents mostly along the mountainous Bazoft river between the Gazestan Village and stunning Zard Lime waterfall. We cross the Bazoft river by a raft made air-inflated sheepskin. A local will swim next to the raft and steer it. The next stop is to have a typical nomadic lunch with a nomad family. 

After hiking and passing many streams on the way, we will reach another nomad family that will host us for dinner. Spending some time with them, you will witness some of their daily routines like collecting wood, milking sheeps and baking bread over a fire. At night, we sleep in a million star hotel in the nomadic tent.

On the second day, hiking starts again. We head to the waterfall in the west region of Ardal town in Chahar Mahal Bakhtiari. The waterfall lies in an area called Dinaran in the green and rocky valley of Zard Lime. We pass the Bazoft River by a zip-line and Zard Lime Waterfall appears. Its 40 meters high and 65 meters wide, considered as one of the widest waterfalls of Iran. You can find any natural attractions in this area, tall mountains, picturesque rivers, wooded forests, and lush hills. The rest of the day will be spent near the waterfall photographing and enjoying nature or hanging out with nomads nearby.

Early in the morning, we hike back to Gazestan Village. After having lunch with nomads on the way, we visit the 6000-year Dezpart steps. These 73 carved steps are rest of a precious historical heritage in the heart of mount. There are many wrong by-ways, so you should follow the guide carefully. Coming down the steps is so exciting that you forget the tiredness of the way. Passing the natural rocks over the river is so pleasant that you warm you up for the rest of your trip. As these rocks are amazingly formed like a bridge due to an earthquake, they call it Khoda Afarin Bridge, which means ‘Well Done God’. In the evening we will reach Gazestan and later to Esfahan.
