Evening/Overnight camping/Two-days excursion
Camp in the desert under a ceiling of stars
Location: Fahraj desert, 45km south-east of Yazd.
Program: Starting in the afternoon from Yazd or Fahraj, it is a half-hour drive in a 4×4 Jeep to the sand desert, where you will take a short cruise over the sand to the top of the highest dunes. You will continue by walking over the dunes to the camping place where you can enjoy the scenery at sunset as the glimmering red sand fades into darkness. As night falls, we all gather around a campfire to refresh by downing a lot of tea and cook a delicious meal from fresh ingredients on the fire. After the relaxing and elaborate dinner break, we’ll marvel at the magic of the stars and your guide will provide astronomical information. (end of evening tour)
If you wish, you can spend the night in the desert, dreaming under the starry sky. In the morning, while your guides are preparing breakfast you can walk on the sand dunes which seem so different in full daylight.
The overnight camping tour ends in the morning after breakfast. However, if this is not enough we can spend the day to continue our adventure by walking on the barren desert, having a splendid lunch break at the opening of the Yellow-waters valley and exploring the valley to reach the salt lands on the foot of Dorbid mountains where you will see one of the most astonishing features of the desert. End of two-days desert excursion.
Note: We are vegetarian-friendly and animal lovers. Yet for those who fancy it, Camel riding can be arranged in some seasons at a fee.
