The journey from Raver to Tabas unveils a road brimming with geological wonders and unique earth formations. The Zarand desert becomes our gateway to this journey, hosting the annual autumn saffron harvest festival. Raver welcomes us with its desert essence, showcased through its statues representing the region’s wildlife and cultural heritage. Here, the Raver Yakhdan and the Museum of Anthropology offer insightful stops before we venture further into the desert. Our path is adorned with pistachio orchards and geological marvels, including a colorful, blue-layered mountain near Darband and the layered erosion formations beyond the dam. As we approach Nayband, the vast expanse of the Lut desert unfolds, guiding us to the largest wildlife sanctuary in Iran. Along this path, water reservoirs serve as havens for travelers, culminating in a refreshing stop at the Dig Rostam spa, famous for its therapeutic hot springs.
