Sistan and Baluchistan province is in the south east of Iran on border of Afghanistan and Pakistan. To the south of the province is the Indian ocean and the Gulf of Oman.
This province is about the size of Switzerland, the Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, Slovenia combined. So there’s a fair amount of driving from the north to the south of this province. This province has 1,100 km a land border with Pakistan and Afghanistan and it has a coastal stretch of 300 km along the Indian Ocean’s Gulf of Oman. The people who live here are the Baluchi tribes who are Suni Muslims and the Sistani tribes are Shi’a Muslims, they both speak Persian.
The Sistan and Baluchistan province is really amazing with huge contrasts between the deserts, snowcapped mountains, and strange rock formations, an active 4,000 m volcano, Martian scenery and cliff enclosed fishing villages along the coast, tropical rivers with the rare Mugger crocodile. It's Iran’s least known destination yet one of the most beautiful parts of our country. An example of one of the places you shall visit is the famous UNESCO listed (in 2015) Shahr-I Sokhta or “Burnt city” founded around 3200 BC situated at the junction of Bronze Age trade routes crossing the Iranian plateau. Another region we are going to visit on this trip is Dasht-e Lut desert. One of Iran’s main highlights, in terms of nature. Since Iranian deserts were on the Silk Road, there are many historical monuments and sites left from that period that are worth visiting. There are many different types of flora and fauna living in this hot region and many Caravanserais that still accommodate travellers like you. The Lut desert was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2016. Another main highlight of this journey is exploring the coast of the Gulf of Oman as well as visiting several small towns and fishing villages.
