The first edition of Iran Silk Road Rally was recently held on parts of the ancient Road in Semnan province, central Iran.

During the two-day event, which started on Thursday, participants from more than 15 Iranian provinces drove a 200-kilometre distance from desert to mountain. The race started from the Rig-e Jenn Desert in Garmsar County.

It is a vast area of sand dunes in the middle of Dasht-e Kavir, Iran’s central desert in the border region of Semnan and Isfahan provinces.
