The Shahr-e Kurd route to Dezful is undoubtedly one of the most pristine and daring adventurous rugged and forested hiking routes in Iran. It is a 70-kilometer hiking route of continuous ascending and descending through Zagros Mountain heights where a small region drastically switches to a different climate zone in a short distance. This is the reason why the nomadic populations on the mountain can find the perfect place to live, according to the season they are in, by just traveling for a couple of hours. The route starts Shahr-e Kurd east of the Zagros and ends in Dezful west of the Zagros.

Tour Details

The Zagros mountain range in Iran extends northwest to southeast from the border areas of eastern Turkey and northern Iraq following Iran’s coast on the Persian Gulf and ending at the Strait of Hormuz. The Zagros Mountain is 1,600 km long and 240 km wide with dazzling snow-covered skyscraper peaks reaching up to 4,409 meters. At some places, the mountain it is referred to as the spooky mountain by the locals. This due to the reflection of the roaring thunder of the horrific sound of avalanches of the mysterious mountain.
This is one of the most pristine areas in the world, which mountaineers have rarely attempted to cross. The path is situated in a magnificent piece of Zagros Mountains also known as the Alps of Iran where some of the most remote Iranian tribes who have no contact with other people in the country and are completely away from modern facilities might be encountered.
There are plenty of inspiring places to explore, and adventures to get involved in across the epic variety of landscapes in Bakhtiary Highlands with its dazzling snow-covered peaks where one can disconnect from the bustle of everyday life, boost morale in pristine nature, set aside phones for some quality relaxation time, and digital detoxication. It should be noted that mobile networks cannot be reached on the route.
The presence of numerous of freshwater springs sprouting from the rocky cliffs each with its own therapeutic properties in the twisting path of the Zagros mountain not only is among its fascinating features but also provide the only available potable water for the journey.
Considering that this route is rated the highest level of difficulty (5/5) like the Damavand’s tour, travelers should be in a good physical condition. In addition, bandits and thieves may be waiting in ambush on the path, therefore, to ensure the safety of the journey, the tour will be conducted together with Iranian mountaineers.
It is unlikely to use pack animals during the journey so the participants are advised to carry a suitable backpack for their 6-day meal package. Please note that food is provided by the company, necessarily in the form of dry, ready-made food and the lightest form possible.
