DASH -E LUT (Lout Desert)
This region of eastern Iran is an arid, wind-blown desert, completely surrounded by mountains. In the summer months, it can be one of the hottest and driest spots on the planet. In some areas here rain has not been measured.

Enjoy visiting Lout desert, the most attractive desert in the world.
A trip to the uncharted desert and the fantastic “city” of the Kalouts is a special treat, cherished even by native Iranians. You will experience the walk among the fantasy-land structures carved out of sand hills trough eons of the blowing desert winds. You will let yourself roll down the soft sand hills, see the Nebka’s (the flower pots of the desert), the incongruent citrus gardens in the heart of the desert and old fortresses. You will experience the historic cities of Kerman, Mahan and their surrounding villages, and visit the lush green Bagh-e Shazdeh (Prince Garden) known as the “Paradise of the Desert”. The inner tranquility that will decent upon you by spending a night or two under the dark and starry skies of Shahdad, in the heart of the Iranian Kavir surrounded by the deep silence of the desert, will add so much more to the pleasures of your trip to.
