Bitter Wind

Trasfoco: The wind

The northwest wind is one of the strongest in Iran and is known as “the 120-day wind of Sistan”, reaching speeds of up to 120 kilometres per hour. It originates in the plains of Palmir and the deserts of Herat; it enters the country from the east, from the area of Afghanistan, and generally blows from May to August. This wind causes great erosion on the surface of the land and moves large quantities of sand. Due to the strength of the wind and the evaporation of Lake Hamun over the last decade, many villages in Sistan have been buried beneath the sand and their inhabitants have had to migrate to other areas. In recent years, the people of the region have begun to refer to it as the “bitter wind”.
