Maranjab Desert, Kashan

(4.4/5 based on 75+ reviews on the web)
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.
