The lack of water resources in the vast expanse of Rig-e Jenn along with the presence of natural obstacles such as salt marshes and high sand dunes are factors that have kept this area away from human access for centuries.
This region does not have vegetation and animals, and so far, no report has been provided on the animals that are likely to live here. The widespread sands of this area and its marshes scare every human being. If someone travels to this area without the necessary equipment, he will be caught in desert mud and will join those who have disappeared in this desert.
The old people believed that this land was damned was the base of devils and evil spirits. The people living around the desert are on the same opinion that if anyone enters Rig-e Jenn, he’ll disappear and is sent from the ghosts and supernatural beings to the heart of this desert! One explorer says that even camels in the desert do not stand and just move when they reach this area.
