One of the famous deserts in Isfahan province is Varzaneh desert which is located near Varzaneh city. The short distance from Varzaneh city to the center of Isfahan province has made this desert very attractive to nature lovers, especially the people of Isfahan. However, nature lovers from other cities such as Tehran also show great interest in this region and visiting this desert.



The city of Varzaneh, with several natural and ancient monuments together, has become an important destination for domestic and even foreign tourists in recent years. And there is a rich culture to see the desert of Iran. It takes about 2 hours to travel the distance between Isfahan and Varzaneh. It is not far from the city of Varzaneh to the desert, and with the guidance of the signs inside the city, the desert route can be found quickly. A desert campsite has been established, and the facilities of this camp can be used.


Entry to the desert is personally restricted and almost all entrances to the desert are closed. For this reason, the only way to enter the desert is from this campsite and for a fee. A short distance from the road, you can see high sands that are an attractive option for climbing if you are a hiker in the desert. Especially at sunrise and sunset when the desert climate is more pleasant.


Contrary to popular belief, the desert is full of plant and animal life. That is, traces of the life of a plant or insect or reptile can be found in every corner of the desert. For this reason, if you travel to the desert, try to respect this ecosystem. As much as possible, do not drive around in places where the plant grows and avoid breaking the bushes. Because many seemingly dry shrubs are actually alive, and even those that are not alive have long been responsible for providing shelter and shelter for the small and large inhabitants of the desert. So let’s just enjoy the desert and its sights and come back with the least change and the least effect.
