About Garmeh Village
The documented history of human settlement in the area was as far back as 4000 years ago, but there exists some relatively reliable evidence that suggests human habitation as far back as 7000 years ago. The main activity for the natives during this incredibly long period had been some form of agriculture and wresting sustenance out of the harsh and unforgiving conditions that are the reality of this land.
During more recent historical times (from about 2000 years ago), the oasis was placed on the main route of the of the famous Silk Road and therefore the main trading route between China and Europe. Consequently, many travelers have passed through the area. A famous Persian poet, philosopher and adventurer by the name of Nasser Khosro passed through the area about 950 years ago and has mentioned the area in his travel writing. This is very well known for all literate Persian readers. As an example of the more well known European travelers of the last few centuries; one can mention the names of Seven Hedin and Alfonse Gabriel who visited Garmeh about a century ago.
