It's an absolutely amazing place to visit. It is located at Bhuj and its more beautiful during the full nights. Best time to go there between December to march during full moon days, before that salt is wet. Its really an amazing and unique place and a must visit whenever in Gujarat.

Went there at the time of White Rann Festival. The place is amazing and not very densely visited. White desert gives you an out of the world feeling. Sunset observed from this place is just amazing. Cultural programmes being held were giving it a flavor. A must must visit place for everyone.

Go to place in the evening and wait for moon to make the earth shine like silver, Best is to go on a Full Moon night. Tip - Watch it from Kala Dunger - "The Balck Hill" thats the highest point in Kutch

Best time to go is sunset. There are 2 parking lots -- one is further in. Go the distance - it's worth it to avoid crowds. Carry a yoga mat and roll out a few sun salutations for a memorable White Desert visit!

Had been here with family and friends during Rannutsav, we were amazed to see the sheer size of the desert/dried lake. The view is just mesmerising. The experience can not be explained in words. Need to visit this place atleast once in a life time.

White run is unique phenomena. One should visit this place during winter and try and spend at least one night during the phase of full moon period especially at Rann Utsav village.Must visit place of India.

I visited white desert during Rannutsav and i found it unbelivable to be a dessert. The area was actually in the sea but got dried because of earthquake in the 18th century. The view of white deset is just magestic in night. Tent accomandation is devoleped here for visitors and its like a small city where all facilities are provided.... More

If you are visiting kutch and not came here, your trip is incomplete. best time to visit it november-december onwards till feb end. dont visit during monsoon as because of rain, you can only see mud and no salt desert. Avoid to visit after feb as its very hot from march to june.

The white desert is the thing you wanna experience at least ones in your lifetime. It needs a long drive from the bhuj city but it is worth it. View of the never ending desert is breathtaking. Last time i was in hurry so couldn't spend a night here in the camp but next time it will be a camping... More
