Nomad Life in Iran
What do you know about Nomad life? Have you ever heard anything about Nomad life in Iran? It’s been hundreds of years that Iran’s nomadic people have roamed the harsh deserts of southwest.
However, each year, they travel with their flocks of goats and sheep from summer highland pastures north of Shiraz to winter pastures on lower (and warmer) lands near the Persian Gulf. Their way of life is a fine balance between man, animal and their environment as well as nature.
However, nomads are people who migrate from one place to another with their tribe, family and all their belongings. Migration is a way of life for nomads in which herding cattle is the basis of economic life. Changing of life location and migrating of human groups are two basis characteristics of nomadic life.

Nomad life could not be separated from nature and herds, which are fundamental for Nomadic survival. They use the goats to provide milk, cheese and meat for their daily needs, but also sell them at the market.
For centuries, Nomad life have been renowned across Iran for their pile carpets and other wool products. The wool produced in the mountains and valleys is really soft and beautiful. Nomads are proud of their cultural heritage and traditions.
