In central Iran, the mountains of Zagros are the domain of the Bakhtiaris, one of the last great nomads.
They are proud shepherds who still practice a long, exhausting, and spectacular transhumance. They remain attached to centuries of traditions as well as a way of life dating back to ancient Persia.
These majestic valleys framed by mountains and glaciers present an unexpected image of Iran.
