It is a beautiful drive to the white dessert. We reached here at 4 pm. the place was awesome and hustling with people. This is open only from December to March. They also have cottages there but too exorbitantly priced. One of the best places to visit in Kutch region.

The Rann is the star attraction of Kutch! It is a unique geographical feature of salt encrusted sand making you feel you are in the midst of a white desert. This is made more surreal when seen on a full moon night.

Very nice, serene & captivating place. Naturally formed every year after monsoon. Best time is during Ranotsav from end Nov till March. It's waste of money if you stay in tent - city. Instead, stay in Bhuj & hire a vehicle (on a full moon day), reach there at around 5 pm, stay till 2 am, return to Hotel &... More

White Desert is part of Great Rann of Kutch and is formed by salts generated from dried sea water. This geographical phenomenon provides an extraordinarily rare experience. This desert can be seen in entire northern part of Kutch. But the place is largely visited from Bhuj towards its north, about two hours driving distance. However, if one can see white... More

Kudos to Gujaart tourism, a place nobody knew is now a well-known tourist destination. A salty land, excellent sun set, calmness of the nature and excellent temporary infrastructure set up by Ministry of tourism during November to March every year is a must see once in a life time according to me.
