Maranjab Desert, Kashan

4.4
#2 of 39 in Nature in Iran
Desert Nature / Park
Experience the beauty of the desert by visiting Maranjab Desert. The area sits about 880 m (2,890 ft) above sea level. Walk among the high sand dunes, encounter animal life such as wolves, jackals, sand foxes, cats, different lizards, and snakes. The plants found here include trees such as Tamarix and Haloxylon and bushes such as Zygophyllum. Visit the salt lake and the island on it which disappears sometimes due to an optical illusion. Consider going in October or November because the path is dry then and the weather is mild. Using our world travel planner, Kashan attractions like Maranjab Desert can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

Where to stay in Kashan

As with many of Iran's cities, tourism in Kashan has not yet reached its full potential and its range of accommodations seems surprisingly sparse. The majority of places to stay sit within walking distance of Agha Bozorg Mosque, with a few additional options lining Amir Kabir Street. Most options come in the form of guesthouses or simple hotels, but a handful of traditional-style luxury accommodations offer a more special experience. Due to restrictions on foreign credit cards, you might have difficulties reserving you room ahead of time.
