Photos: Mesr Desert; a gem in central Iran

KARNAVAL.IR – The Mesr Desert is one of Iran’s most spectacular deserts that attracts many tourists each year. The desert has good recreational facilities including safari, motorbikes and camels that give you a different experience. The desert is located 55 kilometres from the city of Khor of Isfahan province next to a village bearing the same name. The village along with its desert has a warm and dry climate. In the summer, the climate is warm and during the cold seasons the weather is moderate. During the days, it is hot and sunny, but at night with the fall of temperatures, the area gets cold. Alongside the Mesr village, there are many other small villages called Amirabad, Farahzad and Garmeh. The beautiful palm trees, bushes and sand hills have created spectacular scenery in these villages. But Garmeh is different. The presence of Dr Fish springs with therapeutic fish has attracted more tourists to the village.
