Where i live (Zagros Mountains) outdoors is a part of our lives, and many people have jobs related to it, but the economy isn't really helping, as the currency has lost a lot of value in recent years, buying imported goods are a luxury at this point, people try their best to overcome it with national manufacturing but Chinese merchandise rule the market so you can't really trust a backpack that you buy for 40 bucks as that is a quarter of what a teacher makes a month.Hi, and welcome.
You certainly live in a wild and interesting (and varied) part of the world.
Do you have a big outdoor industry in Iran? I am told the skiing is good.
Skiing could be potentially good, because we have Mountains near my town that are snowy all year long, but as you know skiing and winter sports are expensive, so again it lowers fhe odds of anything good coming out of it.
I've encountered many tourists around here and translated for some of them, they usually wonder why the potentials of many resources are untouched.
Would love to accompany you if you end up visiting some day.
