At the edge Lut desert in Iran, unveils the legendary city of Kaluts. Natives believe that those Kaluts are the abandoned city of ghosts. But the science claims that Kaluts or Yardangs are in fact the geological landforms in the middle of the desert, formed by wind erosion. The bizarre shapes of Kaluts give a very mysterious atmosphere to the desert. The name of these natural structures is on the heritage list of UNESCO. Shahdad is known as a unique and natural attraction of Iran pretty much looks like Utah in the USA. The transcendental of Shahdad annually attracts many tourists from inside and outside the country. In this area, you will gain the opportunity of exciting recreations such as safaris, desert camps, and desert hiking is very common, especially in autumn.

Shahdad Kaluts in Kerman is divided into three regions: green, orange, and red. The green area is shown in green, the area is about 2km from the Shahdad-Nehbandan road and is visible and accessible to tourists. If you do not intend to hike in the desert professionally and go to the heart of the deserts of this region, green zone permission is enough for you. Orange and Red Zone are considered forbidden Zone! The two orange and red zones start right after the green zone; however, you have to be careful! many travelers have never returned from these areas, mostly those who traveled without a professional tour guide and necessary equipment. Due to the difficulty in determining the route, tourists are very likely to get lost and get stuck in the desert.

Shahdad desert embraces the hottest point in the world with a maximum temperature of 70 degrees. Your desert journey starts in a 4*4 that would take you on a dune bashing ride and continues by visiting the salt lake and watching the enchanting sunset of Shahdad desert through your tent.
