Kandavan is one of the most amazing rock villages in Iran and the world and one of the sights of East Azarbaijan province, which is located in the heart of Kaleh Qandi rocks and is also known as Kaleh Qandi village. This historic summer village is located at the foot of the slopes of the Sahand volcanic mountain and next to the Kandavan river. The mountainous nature of the area has created streams on the surface of the sloping areas that move towards the valley and form the primary branches of this river. There are beautiful green pastures around this village that attract many nomads. The entire east of the valley is also covered with mountain willow, walnut, elm and almond trees.
Deserts are areas where the annual rainfall usually does not reach 50 mm and has very poor vegetation; But the desert is said to be clay lands that have a very high salt content and are known as salt marshes. Most of the deserts, the time of their formation goes back to the third geological period, have included ancient lakes, and now the salt left behind from their evaporation in distant years prevents the growth of any plants in these areas. Therefore, scientists and geologists believe that the vast region of southeastern Iran should be introduced as Lut Desert; Because the term Lut Desert refers to only a part of this vast desert.
