Jandagh desert.

Postby Kathrine321 » Fri Nov 08, 2013 6:58 am

I like it deserts and my favourite hobby is tourism. I shared with you some beautiful things of Iran Jandagh desert. Jandagh is a famous name for the lovers of desert. The best way to get to Jandagh is the Tehran-Mashhad road to Shahrud and then driving to Moa leman and Jandagh from there. After about 6 hours from Shahrud you get to the village which is so green for a desert village. All around you is the desert waiting to be explored. It’s a very beautiful desert.

Shahram! After reading your thread I have an idea about the Mesr Desert. I never visited it before but my friend often talk about it. Due to insufficient knowledge I can't do so but after joining this community I get to know lots of places that is unknown for me. But after joining it I am familiar and collects some informative information here. Your provided information is sufficient for me and I can easily plan my next visit at the Mesr Desert. Any tip for my visit would be much regarded there.

I visited Sahara Desert located in North Africa; this is one of world largest deserts. Kalahari Desert” and Namib Desert”. We had great time there but now when I after joining this forum I just check your shared knowledge and I decided to go Mesr desert for my next trip. Your information is very useful for other tourists. :)
