Day 2-3: Tehran – Rig-e Jenn desert
Depending on the starting point we can visit Naein and Anarak. Then we will start to get into the dunes of Rig-e Jen desert which have not been crossed by humans until 2009. Locals believe that it is roamed by Jennies. So we will figure it out by exploring different microclimates in this desert for 3 days. Accommodation is camping and the food will be prepared by our chef. On the third evening, we will arrive at a local house bordering the desert to taste the hospitality of local people. We get a chance to refresh and prepare to ride into the next desert.
One night in Rig-e Jen desert.
Day 4-5: Rig-e Jenn desert – Garmeh
After a short walk on the green farms between the drylands, we continue our journey to the desert named “Mesr”, which means “Egypt” in our language. A few hundred years ago, a camel driver came to this side of this desert to find his lost camel. When he saw the beauty of the place, he said: “I will make my own Egypt here”. So he started to dig a Qanat for 5 km to bring water to this area and build a small village in the name of Mesr. This village was destroyed by a flood a few years ago. The beautiful desert in this region is named after the village. During our 2 days, we pass through some small oasis which still bears traces of old desert architecture. We will do one night of camping and the second night we will arrive in Garmeh. This village has the biggest palm gardens in the region and is the beautiful home of the pioneer of traditional local accommodation in Iran, Maziar AleDavood. We will stay at his Ateshooni House for the night.
One night in Garmeh.
Day 6-7: Garmeh – Yazd – Tehran
After a morning stroll through the palm gardens and the water cave in the village, we head to our next desert destination. It is again a unique and different place, so we keep it as a surprise for you to enjoy. The day before we arrive in Yazd we visit one of the ancient villages on the way. Kharanaq and its fortress-like 4 stories architecture are at least 3000 years old. Upon request of our guests, we might visit the Zoroastrian temple of Chak-Chak. Afterward, we transfer to airport for flight to Tehran.
