    Day 1

    Accept the warm welcome of Kerman’s morning sun! Off we go from your Kerman accommodation toward Mahan (40 km). At its Shah Nimatullah Wali’s Shrine enjoy the architectural beauty of the burial place of this Persian Sufi master and poet. Also have a ride toward the elegant epitome of paradisal Persian gardens, the UNESCO-listed Shazdeh Garden. Have another short ride (50 kilometers) to pay a visit to the 1000-year old cypress tree in Sirch Village, an oasis that contrasts its surrounding hot desert with its cool pleasant weather and the lovely view of its many trees.

    On route to Shafi Abad Village, stop by to see one of the world’s tallest kinds of Nebka trees, fostered by the Lut Desert. Then move on to catch a sight of the splendid mud-brick façade of Shafi Abad Caravanserai, a historical caravanserai built in the heart of desert as a refuge for travelers.

    Looking forward to finally seeing the popular destination of desert lovers? Hit the desert again and here you are at the Kaluts of Shahdad. Before the Lut makes you fall in love with its brilliant nights, the outline of the Kaluts against the sky will bless you with an incredible view of the sunset. The great pleasure of camping in the silent peace of the desert and under the starry sky of the Lut would be the experience of a lifetime. Sleep tight!

    Day 2

    The taste of opening your eyes to the lovely sunrise of the desert and seeing the supernatural beauty of the constantly changing sandy towers is indescribable.  Free your mind in the silence of the endless sand dunes and feel the amazing sense of the hot sand against your feet.

    Then have a bit of excitement off-roading through the desert toward Gandom Beryan (meaning roasted wheat), once recorded as the hottest place on earth. From there, you’ll also enjoy the view the salty Shoor River together with the egg-shaped hills and the Kaluts have created.  To wrap up the journey before heading back to Kerman, visit the astonishing Dolphins Valley.
