Deserts

Iran Deserts

IRAN is a special place for people interested in gravitation of deserts. Two vast deserts of Iran lie in the central region of Iran which together occupy 320,000 square kilometers or one fifth of the country’s land area. The Dasht-e-Kavir’s territory is covered with sand and pebbles; there are marshes, lakes and wadis. The smaller desert called Dasht-e-Lut has an area of about 51,800 square kilometers. Life is not easy in a desert, but its hard-working people forge aqueduct canals – aqueducts or Qanat in Persian – to water pistachio and apple sand dates orchards.
