Before i start, imp note: Make sure to take the permit before 5 PM else you might lose the chance to view sunset or night view the same day. We did this mistake. Its really an amazing and serene experience to view the rann of kutch from highest view point in Kalo Dungar. Localites even say that one can view... More

Kala Dungar is the highest point in the Rann of Kutch, approached up a narrow, tortuous and quite roughly-surfaced road. On top of the hill is a temple dedicated to the 3-headed god, Dattratreya, an amalgam of Shiva, Vishnu and Rama. Here a Hindu saint lived, who retreated between services, and fed the wild foxes. When he had no food,... More

About 80kms north of Bhuj , Kutch is the Great Rann of Kutch. This beauty is now under many of travellers' list and is surely worth the visit. Most Enjoyable are the sunset , a full moon night visit to this unique place and a visit to witness the sunrise. The Rann looks different on all three visits. Viewing Salt... More

from Mumbai to the Great Rann of Kutch was quite a transition. The salt flats were amazing, sparkling white. The landscape appears empty but with all deserts you have to look closely to see the beauty. I am fond of big empty landscapes so I really loved it and from a geological perspective it is really interesting. Lots of police... More

Beautiful and unique, the white desert gave me one of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever experienced. Come around 5 in the evening and stay back until dark. The best time to visit is full moon nights. The moonlight reflecting on the white sand is something you do not want to miss out on.

We drove to the edge of the desert and parked in the vast lot. Then there was along walk to reach the white area itself. We saved our energies by taking a camel cart for 2 Kms. Then we walked on the rann for a further Km to walk on the salt crystals itself. We waited till sunset and then... More

Rann Utsav is something we were most excited to visit for a long time. Guj. Tourism had taken up a commendable initiative to bring us face to face with a breathtaking landscape, of crystalline salt that glitters like celestial dust in the day and moonlight. And by far this nature’s bounty is the most appealing part of the Rann Festival.... More

A must visit, especially when there is a full moon. White desert is a "must-visit" thing.. while the other near-by sight seeing places are not very great. KALA-DUNGAR (black hill) which is around 90 kms away, is a sunset view point and highest point of kutch, but can be avoided if already seen enough of mountains/hills. Mandvi beach is one... More
