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.

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.

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.

If you are interested in deserting, the name of Isfahan, with its unique deserts, must be eaten; one of these deserts is Varzaneh (Ghar). This desert is located in the city of Varzaneh, somewhere between Yazd and Isfahan, with an area of ​​more than 1000 km, about 100 km from Isfahan. The city of Varzaneh has a long history of countless natural and historical attractions

To travel to Varzaneh, you must move from Isfahan province. By going to this desert, you can see a wide area covered with sandy beaches and sand dunes. What distinguishes this desert from other Iran deserts is a wind, that gives different shapes to sandy hills.

One of the highlights of my trip to Iran.

I asked him to stay on the Chapaker Guesthouse and he proposed me to sleep in the desert with two germans and two french. It was amazing !
After a day trip to the salt lake and a sunset on the dunes we went to our camp in the desert. Tents, fire, really good food (I am veggie and they cooked eggplants on the bbq with tahini, it was excellent), real silence and lots of laughs. I loved this experience.
The prices are really fair and everyone was really kind. Go for it !

Varzana Desert (the correct word Khara desert) is located in Isfahan province, about 100 km of Isfahan and 150 km of Yazd. Here is one of the most beautiful deserts in Iran to enjoy the glory of night in the desert further visiting unique places in the village during the day.

In Varzaneh you can stay in traditional guest houses. There are many guest houses in Varzaneh that have comfortable rooms, accomodation facilities and delicious traditional foods. If you are looking for an authentic desert experience the hosts take you to see local people weaving carpets, salt lake and sand dunes.

We arrived at Varzaneh house after a long drive from Shiraz. The traditional garden was a nice change after the long drive.
The house is simple but Ahmad and Hojat try very hard to make ours and others stay very comfortable.
The rooms are very clean, WiFi is working perfect the food is very delicious and guided tours by Hojat to the desert or salt lake and other places are very informative and comfortable drive, of course if you don’t want to go 4x4 ....
I loved the place and anytime again
