Dasht-e Kavir and the Great Salt Desert, is a large desert lying in the middle of the Iranian plateau. It is about 800-kilometre-long (500 mi) by 320-kilometre-wide with a total surface area of about 77,600 km², making it the Earth's 24th largest desert.

The rally is organized by the Touring and Automobile Club of Iran in close collaboration with the Cultural Heritage, Tourism and Handicrafts Ministry.

Rig Jenn (also spelled Rig-e Jenn) received its name from the belief that the area was haunted by spirits and the devil. This belief was strengthened by, and probably originated from the fact that perhaps many had entered the desert and never returned. Sometimes the notorious winds of Rig-e Jenn howl ominously, sounding like a supernatural wail that triggers even the most rigid skeptics’ imagination.

Rig Jenn is situated in a border area between Semnan and Isfahan provinces. In another world, it is part of Dasht-e Kavir (the central desert of Iran). It consists of sand dunes, dry riverbeds, crystallized salt flowers, salt planes, rare vegetation here and there and a hard and often dried and cracked mud surface.
