Few people imagine the existence of rivers and ponds in the heart of deserts.
It is interesting to know that among the wonderful world of the Lut desert in Iran, there is a river called “Rud-Shoor” in Persian meaning “salt river”.
Rud-Shoor, located in Kerman Province, is the lifeblood of the Lut Desert and carries a lot of salt along its path. Rud-Shoor reaches its highest salinity level when it reaches the central Lut Desert.
