Best Places for experiencing Desert
The eastern part of Iran consists mostly of desert basins, such as the Kavir Desert, which is the country’s largest desert, and the Lut Desert, as well as some salt lakes. Today deserts are becoming increasingly popular with tourists looking for quietness and solitude and to get away from the hustle and the crowds of cities. People come for the stunning scenery, golden sand dunes, clear sky, the unique plants and animals in the desert.
Iran deserts are brilliant for seeing stars and the Milky Way. Lut desert often experiences Earth’s highest land surface temperatures: a temperature of 70.7°C has been recorded according to UNESCO. Great options exist in desert, Safaris, camel riding, stargazing or just walking on sand dunes. Many villagers and locals in desert villages have changed their houses to eco-lodges hosting tourists with traditional foods and drinks.
