The land formations, yardangs (or Kalut in Persian), are caused by strong winds that occur, and therefore, the formations are constantly changing. If you were to go back to the same spot at a later time, it would look completely different. The trip to the desert itself is quite mesmerizing as you pass sand dunes and empty stretches of road. Once you arrive, there is the chance to rent 4-wheelers or take a camel ride through the desert, but for me all of that was unnecessary and actually took away from the serenity and silence the desert has to offer. I instead opted to trek a little deeper, climb on top of a Kalut, and simply be still.
The Lut Desert is one of the hottest and driest places in the world and it's said that it's almost impossible for anything to survive there. But in the middle of the desert, a sign of life- a perfectly camouflaged lizard. This desert is the first natural site in Iran to be registered as a #UNESCO world heritage site in 2016. #iran #kerman #mustseeiran #desert #unesco #worldheritage #lizard #nature #travel #travelgram #wanderlust #camouflage
