Hawraman Region, one of the secret beauties of Kurdistan

Hawraman Region, one of the beautiful places in Kurdistan, arouses admiration in every season.

From North to South, from East to West, every region of Kurdistan has a remarkably unique nature.

Part of the Hawraman region is located in South Kurdistan and the other part in East Kurdistan.

Like its nature, Hewreman also offers beauty with its houses built on the hills.

The main part of the Hawraman region is located in East Kurdistan and encompasses two components of the Central-Eastern Valley (Zhawaro and Takht, in Kurdistan Province); and the Western Valley (Lahon, in Kermanshah Province). The mode of human habitation in these two valleys has been adapted over millennia to the rough mountainous environment.

Tiered steep-slope planning and architecture, gardening on dry-stone terraces, livestock breeding, and seasonal vertical migration are among the distinctive features of the local culture and life of the Hawrami Kurdish people who dwell in lowlands and highlands during different seasons of each year.

On July 27, 2021, part of the Hawraman region along with Uramanat was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List as a cultural site under the name "Cultural Landscape of Hawraman/Uramanat".
