#1 of 12 in Nature in Isfahan Province
Experience the beauty of the desert by visiting Maranjab Desert and salt lake. The area sits about 880 m (2,890 ft) above sea level. Walk among the high sand dunes, encounter animal life such as wolves, jackals, sand foxes, cats, different lizards, and snakes. The plants found here include trees such as Tamarix and Haloxylon and bushes such as Zygophyllum. Visit the salt lake and the island on it which disappears sometimes due to an optical illusion. Consider going in October or November because the path is dry then and the weather is mild.

  • I have 5 star because the location is not far from the capital as the most of desert are far away from Tehran. You have to know how to reach and where is the camp location. Also there is a nice Caravanseri which is removed as a boutique hotel. I recommend it a lot Adventure Iran Mike
