Big dunes
Apr 2020
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.

A Nice Desert Experience
Jan 2020
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.

Worthwhile the trip
Aug 2019
Beautiful desert with undisturbed dunes, the best time to go is at sunset to catch the different light on the dunes, as well a a cooler temperature.
Take the detour to the salt lake, also worthwhile.

Aug 2019 • Friends
One the most famous desert of Iran that is full silence and beauty.
Try to be there around sunset. Otherwise if its summer time, its so hot.
And don't forget to camp there;)

Tour to varzaneh from isfahan
Jul 2019 • Solo
Varzaneh desert is about 130 km far from isfahan and if you are in Isfahan you can consider 6 hours to travel to it and coming back to isfahan. There is also a lake far from it about 30 minutes. I highly recommend you to visit it near sunset if you want to visit it in summer. It's so nice to view sunset. Another exciting thing there is sand boarding which is also available there. I'm moein from isfahan and I can speak English well if you are in isfahan and you want to have a trip to varzaneh you can contact me.I guarantee that you will have some memorable time there😊.if you want to stay there for night it is also possible and I will provide any equipment which will be needed.don't worry about the price it would be surely reasonable.

enjoy the glory of night
Oct 2018 • Business
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.
