IRAN, THE LAST GREAT NOMADS
An exhausting and spectacular transhumance
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.
