About
The salt lake, includes a beautiful salt cover in the form of polygons, salt water puddles, salt mines in an area of 300km squared. The landscape is shiny and white, and a good place to make photos, while at night, you have the advantage of seeing milky way easily in the sky. Sometimes, the horizon gets pink in the time of sunset.

HEART OF IRAN IS DRY YET BEATING WITH LIFE

DO NOT BE MISTAKEN. the fantastic paintings of salt ARE NATURE ITSELF.
This endless lake of salt seems to be an alien place on the moon and in the same time you are in the midst of the desert of Iran!! Go find a spot with no noise. preferably early in the morning. Camping for the night is beyond words.

A similar spectacular scenery is found near Shiraz. It'd take a great luck and a great guide to visit them both.

Stay overnight a Negaar guesthouse
Apr 2019 • Family
We are so glad we didn't just book a day trip, because we had the best time at Negaar guesthouse. It's not in the Lonely Planet (yet) which makes it all the better. Home-cooked meals, knowledgable guides and a cozy atmosphere. Go there!

An endless lake of salt in the middle of the #desert
Apr 2019 • Friends
That's right, desert, and salt lake together! It seems to be an alien place on the moon and at the same time, you are in the midst of the desert of Iran! It's really strange in a nice way to walk barefoot.

A really big salt lake
Apr 2019 • Couples
We visited the salt lake during the Varzaneh Oasis Historical Tour with our Guide Reza from TAP Persia. I can recommend this tour not only because of the wonderful nature and all the sights we visited, but also because Reza is a very good guide. It was a pleasure spending time with him. We learned a lot not only about the sights but also about the life in Iran. Most of all we were impressed by the really big salt lake and the sand dunes nearby. At first I was a bit scared, but sandboarding was real fun. We visited the salt lake in April and there was a lot of water and everything white and only salt but no mud. Walking through the salt water is fun at first, but then... take care of your legs;-)

Great half day trip from Varzaneh
Mar 2019 • Friends
We came here on a tour organised by Negaar guesthouse in Varzaneh. If you've never seen a salt lake before it's quiet exciting: driving on the lake in the car, looking closely at the salt and taking fun pictures in the neverending landscape.

Underwhelming
Nov 2018 • Solo
As a stop before the desert, I guess it's fine, otherwise my personal experience isthat it is not worth going. I guess depends on the time you go, at the time I went (mid-November), the driver and guide tried hard to find a nicer area and we drove from one end to the other, but the place is all yellow sand and piles of brown dirt. And yes! Maybe it's unfair to compare but if you have been to Uyuni in Bolivia, then you really can't help but to think this place is disappointing. I think it's only nice for a few months in the summer. Uploaded 2 pics which I think provide a better description...

After rain...

I went there after rain, so, it's looks different of course, but it was still a wonderful place to visit, you have to cross the desert to get there
