Photos by Hamid Sadeghi of Mehr

Gandom Beryan, part of Shahdad desert in Kerman, has often recorded land surface tempreture of 160 Fahrenheit. The intensity of heat in this area is so high that there are no life forms that can tolerate it.

Gandom Beryan (Scorched wheat) is a 185 square miles large plateau covered with dark lava. The source of this rock is a bit of a mystery as there are no volcanoes in vicinity.
