Varzaneh is an amazing place to experience the desert. close to Varzaneh desert, you can also see the salt lake. The best time to go to see desert is like an hour before sunset so you can spend adecent time before sunset there and watch the sunset.

Varzaneh desert is the typical sand dune desert. It has the advantage of being located near to Isfahan, and easily accessible: there are daily minibus between Isfahan and the small town of Varzaneh. There, you'll find guesthouses to spend the night. Varzaneh desert is particulary nice to watch sunset over the dunes. You can even consider camping there, even though you should be accompanied by someone knowing the area. It's also one the way between Yazd and Isfahan, so it can be a nice stop if you do this trip with a driver or a personal car (buses won't stop nearby). Even if it's quite pretty, Varzaneh is not so big, so it's good for spending a few hours only. Maranjab Desert, north of Isfahan, may be a better option if you really want to have a longer experience in a big desert.

Starting early in the morning to skip the midday sunshine of the desert, you can experience the unique journey to Iranian deserts. Driving around two and half hours we arrive at Varzaneh, the tour guide informs you more about the desert life of Iranians through the history. Enjoying the silence of the desert, you visit Varzaneh’s sand dune, the Pigeon tower, and Gavkhouni Wetland which has a totally different atmosphere in the heart of the desert.

We stayed one night in Roohallas Guesthouse and one night in the desert, went to the salt lake and ate delicious lunch and dinner. Everything was just perfect, Roohallah is very friendly and funny and the food was the best we ate on our whole trip.
