Alam-Kandi summers & the Shahsavan nomads of Iran



Yes, visiting the nomadic tribes can be amazing especially when they, mostly, do not speak the official language of your own country! :D but seems that translators are everywhere like these beautiful children. 😊

P.S. I hope that you know the name of official language in Iran is FARSI which is very different from Arabic! ;-)

Fortunately, this time we could catch these wonderful nomadic in Alam-Kandi summers ;-) It is always interesting to hear about their lifestyle, drinking tea with them, eating fresh dairy products while being in their tented accommodation! I am very lucky that I had the opportunity to meet a great variety of very kind and friendly people there. These Azeri-Turkish speaking pastoralists migrate between their winter quarters, qishlaq, and their summer quarters, yeylaq!

P.S. Although Iranians are famous as warm, friendly and generous people but I have to mention that during travelling in many cities of Zanjan province, I observed that almost all people were extremely kind, friendly, nice and in one word great! They were very helpful too. Once, we asked as address and they just came with us to show it! It is a rare experience to meet these kinds of nice people so enjoy it. :D

This territory is also rich in natural resources and suitable for animal husbandry and agriculture. In this area, one could enjoy the festival of colors without any disturbance! ;-)

Visiting the Shahsavan nomads in Iran
Hi there, I just read your very interesting blog about the visit to the Shahsavan nomads. I'm coming to Iran in a couple of weeks and would love to visit the Shahsavan nomads too, but it seems to be difficult to get there - we can't find any tours or guides that can bring us there. How did you get there? Do you maybe have some contact information of people who could help us getting there? Thank you very much on advance!

HI
Hello there. I am happy you liked it. unfortunately, i don't live in Iran to help you out in this matter. i got there by car and i think it's the only way. you can take a taxi from for example Zanjan, shiraz, Tabriz, (or some other cities) to get there but for that you need to know Farsi or to have a friend to help you for translation as i doubt if taxi drivers can communicate with you. Wishing you a nice stay in Iran in advance.
