Deserts To Historical Cities

Exploring both the nature and culture of the central regions of Iran will take us all the way into a deep and pristine desert which has not been crossed by humans until a few years ago. We will experience why Rig-Jen desert was abandoned throughout history. We will learn how people brought water and civilization into a remote village and named it Mesr Desert. Moving through the old and abandoned routes, we will visit other desert civilizations and will experience the microclimates.
