Located in the “no man’s land” between Europe and the Orient is this mountainous landscape, home to nomads and cattle breeders who have staked their claim to the rugged terrain through perseverance and respect for the sovereignty of nature. With the foothills of its plateaus extending into three countries -Azerbaijan, Armenia and Georgia – and the peaks surrounded by Persian forests, the mountain ranges of Kurdistan and Anatolia and two giant bodies of water in the Caspian and Black Seas, the vistas shown in this rare glimpse of the region from an esteemed natural history production team are truly breathtaking.
