Iran is located in western Asia with more than 82 million population. Iran is the second largest country of the Middle East and the 17th largest one in the world. Iran is a marvellous country surrounded by stunning forests, jungles, mountains, and seas. Its culture, history, and architecture goes back to ages ago. It`s a country well-known for its hospitable and warm-blooded people.

 

Isfahan (1590 m) is like a painting with its astonishing historic monuments of Safavid era, its fabulous weather during the various seasons, its one of a kind handicraft, and an almighty Zayande Rood river running through the city. It`s been known as “Isfahan nesfe jahan” among Iranians which means Isfahan is like a half of a world that refers to its history, culture and ample historical spots.

 

Shiraz (1486 m) is the source of love and literacy in Iran. It has exquisite spots which date back to ages ago and is wonderful for sightseeing. It is the home for many poets who have been in love with this fabulous city.

 

 

Nomads in Iran are the symbol of simplicity, kindness, life celebration and all in all being a human. They

come from a rich culture with a variety of costumes, traditions, foods and how to interact with the

nature. They have spread all over Iran and they have made this country one of a kind with their colorful

culture and tribes everywhere. Iran is home for four tribes: Qashqai, Bakhtiari, Shahsavan, and Turkmen.

About Iran:

Iran is situated in Western Central Asia in the area commonly referred to as the Middle East. It was geographically known as Persia until as recently as the twentieth century. In the North and Northwest, it is bordered by the Caspian Sea, Azerbaijan (not to be confused with its own Iranian Azerbaijan region), Armenia and the autonomous Nakhchivan enclave. To the West lie Turkey and Iraq. Its southern boundaries extend to the scenic shores of the Persian Gulf and Gulf of Oman. It is adjacent to Afghanistan and Pakistan in the East and Turkmenistan to the Northeast.

Weather and Seasons:

Iran is one of the only countries in the world which has the complete four seasons.In summer, the weather can be cool as well as warm, and in the cold winters, it can be mild.A large part of the country suffers great extremes of heat and cold between summer and winter and rainfall is mainly confined to winter and spring. Summers are warm to hot with virtually continuous sunshine, with high humidity on the southern coasts. Very high temperatures can be experienced along the Persian Gulf and Oman Sea with a danger of heat exhaustion. Winter weather is very changeable with some mild, wet spells but also some very cold periods with frost and snow. A small area along the Caspian coast has a very different climate, here rainfall is heaviest from late summer to mid winter but falls throughout the year.

Keep in Mind

When planning the tours, we do consider all the possibilities that might affect the tour. Unexpected incidents like geographical, political, and social can cause some changes in the tour.
During fall and winter ascends, due to the unstable weather condition we have a day as “reservation day”. The cost of this day is nonrefundable and is added to the total cost of the trip and even if it is not used the money will not be given back to the tourist.
Our tours are absolutely tailor made and any changes that you have in mind will be applied to the tour. You can add or omit acclimatization day, cultural tours, and extend or shorten the days of your tour.
When there is a need to ascend to the shelter extra luggage will be transferred by mules and you will have light backpack with just essentials.
As the law of the Islamic country female tourists must have hijab. Scarf, long sleeve blouse which are up to mid-thigh length, and pants are required. Men shall not wear shorts in public places.
Iran`s currency may seem a tad difficult to follow but you will get used to as you shop once or twice. The formal format and name of Iranian money is Rial but Tooman is common between people. (10,000 Rials = 1,000 Tooman)

Road of Isfahan to Chahar Mahal Bakhtiari is asphalted and in a good condition, so is the road of
Chahar Mahal to Shiraz.
