Dashti Margo (Persian:دشت مارگو), Dasht-e Mārgow, Dasht-e Margoh, lit. "Desert of Death" is a desert region in the southern provinces of Helmand and Nimruz in Afghanistan. The desert is adjacent to the Khash Desert and Registan Desert. The area is about 150,000 km2; the elevation is some 500–700 m. The desert consists mainly of sand masses and rocky-clayish plains with solonchaks, takirs, and rare oases. Dasht means desert in Dari and margo means "death," hence, Desert of Death.
