The greatest advantage of our Maranjab Desert tours is that you will not only visit Maranjab Desert, one of the most beautiful deserts in the world, but also Kashan city and the magical village of Abyaneh. Maranjab desert is located about 300 km away from Tehran but it is a relatively short drive from Kashan. Deserts in Iran cover more than a quarter of the country’s land area. Two vast deserts in Iran are Dasht-e Kavir (also known as the Great Salt Desert) and Dasht-e Lut (one of the hottest spots on the face of the earth). Maranjab is part of the Great Salt Desert and due to its proximity to the inhabited rural and urban regions, is widely visited by travelers. Maranjab is an inseparable part of any Keshan desert tour. Our Maranjab desert tour takes two days and the starting point is of course Tehran. But unlike most of our tours the ending point isn’t Tehran but Isfahan aka half of the world. This way you will enjoy the amazing desert tour on your way to Isfahan with its countless sightseeing spots. Similar to most of the deserts in the world, Maranjab desert is very hot during the day but the weather drops considerably after the sunset. Some of the amazing places to see in Maranjab (you can find them on Maranjab Desert map) are the famous Salt Lake and Maranjab old caravanserai where you will spend the night under the blinking eyes of an infinity of stars. Next day after visiting the great Salt Lake and marvelous dunes of Maranjab we will head towards the ancient village of Abyaneh, one of the most beautiful villages in Iran. The locals of Abyaneh still talk with the ancient language of their ancestors and their lovely local garments compliment the magnificence of this old rural realm. Abyaneh will be the last stop before going to Isfahan and is the perfect epilogue to an epic desert tour.
