It is at the southern end of the Zagros, in a semi-desert area that the Maymand region is located. Semi-nomadism is the rule here and the economy is based on agro-pastoralism. The cattle are driven from the valleys to the highlands according to the seasons. The inhabitants live in the hollows of the valleys in a troglodyte habitat. So many practices which yesterday still gave rhythm to the life of many Iranians.
