They are extremely nice and hospitable. You can spend 2 or 3 nights in Qashqai tents, taste their great food which is usually made with sheep’s meat, listen to their special music played with instruments called “Saaz and naqareh” and see their hand woven and colorful carpets which are well known in the whole world.
