A trip out to Kaluts in eerily barren land

TEHRAN – Among terrifying places to travel might initially appear to be the desolate deserts. On the Iranian plateau, however, there has been a growing allure for flocked there.

For nature enthusiasts, the trump card of Iran’s Kerman region, maybe a trip out to Kaluts to see the eerily barren land situated within the UNESCO-registered Lut Desert.

Giant dunes, shifting sands, salt plains, wind-hewn Kaluts, meteorite fields, and rocky terrain provide an epic journey of breathtaking beauty and wilderness through the massive harsh desert.

Also known as Dasht-e Lut, the desert is a top destination for those who are in search of new adventures; outstanding scenery and unparalleled serenity are probably tops on the list.

An absolute must, recommended by travel guides, giant Kaluts are best seen at sunrise or sunset due to the dramatically changing colors.

Out here in the Lut Desert, nothing grows at all, and dramatic erosional features known as Kaluts are the main magnetism.

Be sure to spend a few hours wandering around, climbing, and exploring this utterly unique natural phenomenon.

The Lut Desert is one of the hottest and driest places on Earth in the summer, so take caution and avoid being outside during prime time. You’ll require a jacket during the winter.

Seven years of satellite temperature data analyzed by NASA show that the Lut Desert is one of the hottest places on Earth.

Between June and October, this arid subtropical area is swept by strong winds, which transport sediment and cause erosion on a colossal scale.

Guided tours are the safest way to get out there and camp overnight in the desert under an enchanting sea of stars.
