    The Kalouts are impressive rock formations found in the middle of the beautiful desert of Lut. This desert is one of the hottest spots on the planet, having registered the highest temperature on the Earth's surface: 70° C in the summer. So go in winter is essential. The desert of Lut is one of the most beautiful and impressive sites I've ever been. It is certainly a unique spot on the planet, so much so that recently was included in the list of Unesco World Heritage sites. We organize our ride with the Amir (whatsapp + 98 913 198 2482), one of the pioneers in excursions through the desert and a fantastic Guide! It is important to note that in Kerman found tours costing 1/3 the price of the tour organized by the Amir, however we were able to verify that these tours don't go in the deep desert, like Amir will, or camp in the middle of the Park. The tours offered in hotels just few kilometres from come out paved road, and the most beautiful part of the desert and the Kalouts is out of the reach of these tours. Strongly recommend the 2 days trip with Amir.
