A country of busy cities and remote mountains, Iran is not on the regular tourist itinerary.
The first story from Iran is rather different from others on this site - it summarises a film about the annual migration of the Qashqa'i nomads taking their sheep and goats to their cool mountain pastures in the summer. A story of a way of life that is disappearing, and an example of nomadic journeys that were once common in many countries of the world.
