Lut Desert - Iran Tourist Attractions
The Lut Desert, Iran’s first UNESCO World Heritage natural attraction, is known for its extraordinary tranquility and was once the hottest spot on Earth. This vast, uninhabited plain, covering 10% of Iran’s land area, features ever-shifting sand dunes, creating constantly changing landscapes. It’s renowned for its ‘Kaluts’ region, the world’s tallest sand dunes, and its dark, dry surface. The desert’s central region is known for its extreme heat, and most of its inhabitants reside in Shahdad. The Lut Desert’s accessibility from various provinces makes it a popular tourist destination.
