Words cannot explain the experience we had. The white salt pan leaves you spell bound. We went there thrice, at different times to experience the beauty of the rann.

We visited the white desert for sunrise and sunset. It is the most beautiful view and if you want to experience a great view please visit it at the time of full moon day.

We visited this place during the Rann Festival and it was really fantastic experience. While you need to do your bookings and other stuff well in advance, you also need to check the programs which are going to take place there. The best is to see the sunset & moon rise. I have attached some of the pics as well.... More
