As a result, crossing the desert without prior research and thorough study of the wet season isn’t recommended.
During summer the temperature is around 60 degrees at noon and between 30 and 25 degrees at night. This temperature variation causes the rocks to crush. During the cold seasons, the temperature is between 13 and 17 in the morning and between -7 and 0 at night. The annual precipitation in the central desert is between 2 to 5 mm.
The Mesas in Dasht-e Kavir are among the most unique attractions of this vast desert. Mesa is a geological term for spots in the desert that are higher than the surrounding area with the peak being flat. The erosion due to severe winds blowing in this area has flattened the peak of these hills over time, creating the fascinating phenomenon seen today. Takht-e Aroos and Takht-e Abbasi are some of the most beautiful Mesas in this area. Located south of Dasht-e Kavir and in Isfahan province, Takht-e Aroos enchants every visitor with its beauty.
