Nowadays, wireless sensor networks are known as a new challenge in network science. New features of these networks have made it impossible to use the traditional routing protocols. The most important challenge of these networks is the limited energy of nodes. In this paper, we will introduce MEHR as a multi-hop location-unaware hierarchical routing protocol to decrease the energy consumption in nodes, and to increase the network lifetime, we also apply MEHR to reach to a scalable routing. We will introduce a new factor to select candidate nodes and to send intra-cluster messages. We will use place-advertisement messages of sink, and a limiting parameter and also overhearing concept to create cluster hierarchies with no extra message.
