Maranjab desert is a wide area of sand dunes that stretches along the eastern part of Kashan city. The areas south and farther from Maranjab are much more pristine and less touristic. One of these areas is Siazgeh desert near the small town of Abuzidabad, 20 km south of Kashan.
There are several eco-lodges in the area that cater to tourists. The best accommodation in this area is Shah Abbasi Caravanserai, which has been improved and renovated and is a very good environment for accommodation.
