Experiencing the coolest activities in the hottest place on earth. Dasht-e Lut or Lut Desert is where you can take off your shoes and enjoy delicate sands embracing your bare feet.
Lut Desert has one of the best developed active dune fields in the world. When sunlight shines on the surface of the dunes, you get to see different types of glittering sands and explore the unique patterns of the dunes.
If you are looking for a thrilling activity in the middle of the calm atmosphere of the desert, 4x4 off-road cars are available to fulfill your desires. While you are driving up and down the hills, you can feel the exhilarating sensation and adrenaline in your body.
Get off from the cars and keep walking in the desert to find yourself in the middle of a magical place where the only sound you can hear is yours.
Looking around, big rocks known as Kalut show their strange shape, which is the result of the wind abrasion of dust. They look like tall, abandoned buildings in the middle of nowhere. Standing in the world’s largest cloddish town while being surrounded by pure silence, your imagination flies to figure out the mystery of this place.
Continuing your way in the desert, you will be surprised by seeing a river in the heart of this parched land. The acidic Shur or Salty River flows through the sand and finds its way in the middle of the wilderness while leaving a beautiful white pattern of salt behind.
Going to the east, you feel the temperature rising, and the heat hits your face. However, visiting the spectacular rocks that are covered with black volcanic lava is worth it. The eye-catching contrast of black stones with yellow soils of the area has created a wonderful place to visit. Still, Gandom Beryan is the hottest place on earth, according to NASA, in which no living creature can survive for a long time.
When the day is coming to an end, looking at the sunset in the desert is an unforgettable memory. The warm caramel color of sand along with orange and golden sun rays is stunning.
It would be a huge waste if you visit the desert and not spend the night. The option of camping is available for you to make a bonfire, prepare a hot tea, and enjoy the pleasant warmth in the cold nights of the desert.
To finish the tour with a fantastic ending, you can extinguish the fire, lay down on your back, and get lost in the millions of stars shining above your head. While stargazing, you can feel the desire to reach your hand and catch a star. However, the image of the dancing golden starts in the middle of the pure black sky etches in your mind and stays with you for the rest of your life.
