    We had a really wonderful time with Mohammad and the Qashghai nomads. The Zagros mountains, with the canyon, river, lake, summits etc are a really stunning place. I think Mohammad is one of the best guides you can find, he is from the nomads, he knows what he is doing and had an answer to almost all of our questions. I also really liked the way he behaves when he takes tourists to the nomads places, he is a very respectful person in every situation. You don't feel like in one of those tourist tours at all! We had a great time. Thanks a lot!
