Zagros Mountain Treks

The Zagros mountain range starts in the north western part of Iran and extends all the way to the south east.

One of the most exciting areas is an epic trek deep in the Zagros Mountain Range around Aligoodarz. This trek will mean experiencing authentic nomadic life (of the Bakhtiyari Tribe) far away from where tourists go. These are the remotest parts of Iran in terms of access.

The Zagros treks may be from 5 to 10 days. However, due to the remoteness of the treks on offer here, we recommend you allocate at least 5 days to this part of your trip including the transfers from Isfahan or Shahre Kord or Aligoodarz . More touristy parts of the Zagros mountains include day visits near Shiraz.

These treks I offer are only suitable for mentally and physically fit trekkers who like adventure. You need to be able to carry a 20 kg+ backpack.
