Today is the day of the migration:
A Great Day for the Nomads. For 3 days we accompany them in their epic migration in Zagros mountain ranges. During these 3 days, we have an overall of 42 km hiking. Flexibility is a keyword since there is no fixed plan due to the Nomads’ ever-changing routine (sometimes we face some unexpected adventures to which we need to adapt ourselves). While moving behind the flock in Zagros mountainous regions, don’t forget to devour the scenic beauty of the area – a view you will never forget.
You are all surrounded by imposing mountains or oak trees with the sound of sheep bell in your ears. Take photos and soak up the view. In the afternoon, when the Nomads stop moving and set up the black tent, you have plenty of quiet to enjoy the spectacular surroundings.
At nights, a cool night’s sleep under the starry sky in the lower mountain temperatures would be quite enjoyable. You will never forget the authentic nomadic lifestyle you experienced while doing Kooch.
On day 5, we will have breakfast with our nomad family, then we leave them to an amazing mountain village called Khouye. After 3 days of migration with the nomads, a comfortable cozy village house would be a perfect lodge. A village with different fruit orchards and old houses. we will also have a fabulous view of the surrounding mountains. We will stay in the village for the night.
