Iran is home to two of the most marvelous deserts on earth. One might mistakenly picture them as a sandy flat area covered only with sand dunes. However, after the first visit, they will totally redefine their understanding of the area. Iran deserts support rich varieties of life and are amazingly diverse geographical areas.
“Dasht-e-Kavir”, also known as “Kavir-e-Namak” or “Great Salt Desert” is a large desert lying in the middle of the Iranian Plateau. This desert of Iran receives very little snow or rain. However, the surrounding mountains provide sufficient runoff – enough to make some seasonal lakes & springs.
“Lut desert” is a large salt desert located in the south east of Iran and was registered on UNESCO’s world heritage in 2016 and reportedly laying claim to the hottest land surface temperatures ever recorded on earth, makes it not an ideal location for an afternoon picnic. However, pleasant evening weather, moonscapes of the desert make an unforgettable venue for night-time camping beneath the stars, and the views at dawn are astonishing!
