Maranjab Desert, Kashan

4.2
#2 of 9 in Parks in Isfahan Province
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.

  • First part of the tour was pretty good, as we had a tour guide to explain - underground city, mosque, ruined castle. We then went onto the sand dunes, which were nice to see, as at that time, beautifu...  more »
  • The desert itself is beautiful. We have booked the visit with a trip to various places of interest. Here, a Mr. Hossein is recommended by various hotels (Kashan_Guide). The tour cost times ca 50 USD now it is Abboujane and transfer about 70 USD incl after Esfahan. The night at the caravanserai is a nerve and can give themselves (no mattress, sleeping on stone floors). You should check what looks like the night in the desert.

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.
