Unknown wonders in heart of Iran’s Kerman desert

Tasnim – Despite being located in a hot and dry climate, Kerman province in the central Iran has many lakes which are considered as wonderful natural attractions for tourists.

Rivers, springs and natural watersheds have created permanent and seasonal lakes in different parts of the province, each of which is a habitat for various species of plants and animals, and a symbol of life in difficult conditions.

Torshab Lake

The lake is recovered when the rainfall and precipitation is good. At such times, the lake turns into a habitat for birds and aquatic animals. However, it dries in the warm seasons and the size of the lake varies depending on the amount of precipitation. The average depth of the lake is about 50 centimeters and the water of this lake is salty and unusable. The flora around the lake is mainly common reed.

Hamoun Wetland

Hamoon Jazmourian wetland is located in the southernmost point of the province and on the border between Kerman and Sistan and Balouchestan province. It is considered as one of the most important lakes of the province whose size varies according to the downpours and the amount of water entering it. Because of good flora surrounding it, the lake is a very rich source for livestock to graze. It also provides the travelers and tourists with a spectacular view.

Makhrage Lake

This salt lake appears in the seasonal ecosystem every year in the middle of November with the first seasonal rainfall. It is accessible until August, and then, due to the interruption of the water inlet and the high temperature of the air, the lake water evaporates.
