Dasht-e Kavir, or the Great Salt Desert, is a large desert located at the center of the Iranian Plateau, stretching from Dasht-e Lut to the Alborz mountain ranges.

The desert floor is covered with sand, rock and large salt marshes in a mosaic-like shape.  A large part of this area is part of the Kavir National Park, a protected ecological region.
