Nomad Tour with a visit to Grand Canyon of Iran
This nomad tour is one of our best Qashghaei nomads experience in Iran which comes with Grand Canyon of Iran, symbolic canyon for Qashghaei people. In this tour we will also discover some other highlights in south of Shiraz, such as Pink lake, Maiden castle and Shahr-e Gor an ancient Sasanian empire’s city.
After your breakfast, we will start our Nomad tour by driving to Firuzabad County located in south of Shiraz. The region has lots of historical and natural attractions to offer to its visitors but like most of the other places in vast Iran these places are not well explored as well.
The first stop will be in the Grand Canyon of Iran, Haygher canyon is definitely one of the highlights with breathtaking view overlooking to a vast and high canyon. After our visit we will visit Shahr-e Gor, Sassanid ancient city with its Central tower (Milo Sassanid ancient tower). Next stop will be The Maiden Castle (Ghaleh Dokhtar), there are many of Maiden castles or bridges all around Iran but this one is one of the best one to discover, located on top of the hill overlooking to the road passing by.
The tour will go on to Meymand village to see the traditional way of making rose water or other herbal remedies to support the families who are trying to preserve our traditions and the ancient recipes of making these healthy herbal waters.
From here, our last stop before reaching to Nomads will be Maharlu lake, this salt lake water has turned pink which has created a wonderful natural beauty worth visiting for all visitors who visit Shiraz.
The last but not least, we will reach to Nomads tent to stay overnight and enjoy a local dinner with nomad’s family and experience their life style. In this modern world and with these fast growing technologies there are only few Nomad tribes left in Iran and some other countries around the world whom still kept their nomadic life style. So having an opportunity to visit one of them is worth spending a night with them.
