Welcome to The Kaluts (Lut Desert)


You can get a good glimpse of the region's magnificence by driving the Nehbandan–Shahdad road, by taking a day trip excursion from Kerman, or by renting a taxi from Shahdad. But to reach the dunes you'll need to do a tour with a 4WD and experienced guide. Don't attempt to visit by day in summer, when midday ground-temperatures can rise to an almost unimaginable 65°C.
