Lut Desert for World Heritage List

An application has been sent to UNESCO to register Lut Desert on the world heritage list, said Bahman Izadi, a desert expert and head of Kanoune Sabze Fars, an environmental NGO, quoted by Mehr News Agency.
With temperatures as high as 71 °C, Lut is aptly called ‘the Pole of Heat on earth.’ NASA figures show that between 2004 and 2009 (except for 2008 when Turpan Depression in north of China had the title with 68 °C) different regions in Lut Desert had the hottest spots, with extreme temperatures.
Lut Desert, registered as national heritage, is a large salt desert in southeastern Kerman.
