Iran Mesr Desert – Where Earth Meets Sky
24 Breathtaking Photos
Mesr is a village and desert area in Jandaq Rural District, in the Central District of Khur and Biabanak County, Isfahan Province, Iran. This desert represents an interesting scene of the integrated performance of geomorphic and geologic processes and climate changes.
Reaching Mesr is easy, although you need to change direction several times from major cities of Iran, around 250 kilometers drive onto the Naein-Tabas road from Isfahan west to east. After passing Farokhi and Nasrabad villages, there is a sign showing off-road direction: ” Toward Mesr.” All in all, it is 420 km from Isfahan.
Upon 43 kilometers drive from the sign across the sand hills, 3 green spots will appear from far, similar to three emeralds next to each other. Few moments later, while the absolute silence of desert is your only company, you will find yourself in the first emerald land, Amirabad. The road is totally flat which is considered as one of the wonders of Iran’s central desert and surprises every Eco-tourist. The sand hills around the village are known as thrones since the strong wind has shaped the surface, forming strange and attractive figures.
The sunset, the moonrise, the stars, the dunes, the camels, the traditional houses and hear the silence of the desert.
