These are some of the stories we are tracking for you in this episode of IRAN program: 

Bojnourd 

One of the most popular sports in Iran since ancient times is wrestling. A special kind of wrestling is done with Chookheh. Chookheh is the suit or clothing the Kurds traditionally wear. Obviously, the Chookheh wrestling sprang from among Kurdish Iranians. But these days it is more common in North Khorasan.

Stew Festival in Zanjan

Chaharmahal & Shahr-e Kord

A splendid natural attraction of our country is the Zagros mountain range. It covers much of the western part of Iran.
