Having always dreamed of going to a desert and spending the night under the stars, going to Mesr Desert was the best thing I could have done, because not only did I experience that but so much more! We stayed at the beautiful and very traditional Shenzar GuestHouse where we found a very hospitable family who prepared the most delicious Iranian dishes for us.
Throughout our stay we had numerous adventures including driving on sand dunes during sunset, whilst listening to beautiful Iranian music, it was an indescribable experience. For any adventure seekers like me, going on an ATV motor trip in the desert is a must. It was breathtaking, both from the stunning desert views lit up so beautifully during sunset, and also from the adrenaline I felt whilst we went up and down the sand dunes on the motor.
Camping in the desert was for sure one of the greatest experiences I have ever had, not only did I get to see a sky full of stars, but I also got to sit around the fire and smoke shisha in the middle of a desert at night with local people. Let’s just say that I didn’t want the night to end!
