The Registan Desert, also known as Rigestan Desert, is a desert in Afghanistan. It is between Helmand and Kandahar provinces in southwestern Afghanistan. It is a sandy desert with small, red sandhills about 50 to 100 feet (15 to 30 m) high, plains that are covered with sand, and open rocky and clay areas. There are a few Baluchi and Pashtun nomads there. The desert is starting to go over surrounding agricultural areas.
