Photographer's Note

Zagros Mountains are covered by Largest Acorn Jungles of the world
The name Zagros is possibly derived from the Greek Zagreus, meaning stormy. On the other hand, and more likely the root-word, the name ZaG'R' means 'great land' in the Avestan language.

Another possiblity is that the name Zagros is derived from the name of Sagarthians an ancient Aryan people of the region related to Medians.
