Camel Riding From the Past to Present
The camel is the only domesticated animal that can endure and survive in the hot desert climate. Therefore, our ancestors used camels for their long journeys.
You must have seen pictures of passenger caravans traveling long distances with camels and reaching their destination in old movies and animations because this lovely animal, in addition to giving a ride to its passengers, also carries a lot of cargo. Also, the camel can survive for about two months without water in the desert, which is possible due to its hump.
With the invention of cars, airplanes, and trains, no one chooses camels to travel anymore, so camels can rest and spend a moment in peace in the calming desert. But this is not the end of their work, nowadays, camel riding in the deserts of Iran and the world is defined as a recreation and is offered in the form of a tour to those who love it.
Camel Riding in Desert
Unlike horse riding, which can be done anywhere, camel riding is only for the desert. Sistan and Baluchistan, Yazd, Kashan, Maranjab, etc., are among the provinces and cities where you can ride camels, so if you go to one of these places, know that these lovely animals are waiting to see you and give you a ride.
Professional camel riding competitions are held in Sistan and Baluchistan and Yazd, and at the end, the winners are awarded exquisite prizes. If you are also interested in this discipline, you can watch it in the fields or become a professional camel rider yourself.
