Mesr is an oasis located in the central desert of Iran known as Dashte-Kavir in Persian. The central mountain ranges of Iran, which cross the desert, are close by. The town's only source of water and, therefore, lifeline flows from a spring near the foothills of the afore-mentioned mountains close to the heart of the village. This is the only source of life for the gardens and date palm orchards that make this oasis such a special place.
The documented history of human settlement in the region dates back to 4,000 years ago, though other relatively reliable evidence suggests that human habitation is 7,000 years old. The main activity of the local inhabitants had been agriculture and wresting sustenance out of the harsh conditions of this land. In more recent historical times (from about 2,000 years ago), the oasis appeared on the famous Silk Road. Consequently, many travelers have passed through the area. Nasser Khosro, the famous Persian poet, philosopher, and adventurer, traveled through the area about 950 years ago.
Khoor, Mesr, and Garme are located in the southern part of the desert, which deserves more attention. In fact, Mesr Village is one of the amazing natural attractions, especially for those who enjoy trekking through the rough but beautiful terrain of a desert. Mesr (which means Egypt in English) is located 30 km north of Khoor. Despite being far away from the other spotlights of tourism in Iran, it gets quite many visitors during the year. Mesr is best known for its unique sand hills and an amazing bamboo field. The sandhills around the village are known as thrones since the strong winds have formed peculiar and attractive shapes.
Takhte Aroos and Takhte Abbasi are among the most famous hills in the area. From the top of each sand throne, you get an amazing view of the village and the desert. Another widely known attraction of the area is called Selek non-salt lake, which is covered by hive-like shapes formed by salt. These are of great interest to those interested in adventure travel. Because of its location in the southcentral desert, the weather in Mesr Village is warm and dry. The village is believed to be 100 years old and was named after its founder Yousef (meaning Joseph). It was later changed to Chah-Deraz (Long Well), because it supplied water to the village.
