Shahdad Desert, located on the western edge of Lut Desert, is home to unique natural structures which display the scenic beauty of the desert.
It is 24,000 square km in area and is regarded as an archeological site of Kerman Province. Impressive desert formations which are
scattered in an expanse of 11,000 square km across the Desert have come into being about 20,000 years ago as a result of water and wind erosion.
Every corner of the desert is home to archeological sites such as graveyards, castles and caravanserais which date back to the fourth millennium B.C. and the Islamic era.
