The naming of Rig-e-Use is so because of a very long sandy hill at the center of the region, which came about when a large rock is rolled down the mountainside and the view is like a cheetah lying with his head buried in the mountains.

Near this sandy region and on the eastern side at the end which is where the earthen dams are situated, the Village of Polv is located where a checkpoint with the same name run by the Environmental Protection Agency was established in the region.
The Old Cistern in most parts of the region and in the middle of the sandy region were made and used by the ancient caravans for loading.
