Dear Readers,
Sharing bit of its Geographic history. White Rann of Kutch is massive salt plan located between the boarders of India & Pakistan. Long ago it used to be a Indus River bed until the great Earthquakes of 1819 changed the path of river from here(Kutch-India) into the Pakistan (now) leaving the Arabian sea water enter into the soil and adding salinity since then. Finally turned into the White Rann (desert) Salt is edible and being harvested in Little Rann of Kutch.

Every year monsoon (June-Sept fills this waste open Salt land (White Rann) and it becomes wet and inapproachable for few months. Finally scorching heat of Summer (40'C +) evaporates water and leaves salt on the top.

Thanks for reading!

White desert is awesome place to visit. People have different concept of desert in their mind but this is not having such send dunes etc.. it is flat land. Land of SALT. Hence it is white. It is full of quicksend. It is very beautiful to see this land in full moon night it appears as if you are on moon. As the salt land works as mirror and the moon light is being reflected. Dhordo is the nearest place to stay. Karo Dungar is a mount which is visible from the desert and in olden days it used to help travellers to set the direction of journey in desert. In monsoon the desert becomes like an ocean full of water. Visit this wonderful creation of God.

Its beautiful and startles you a bit, if you do not know what you are headed for. The much seen white that seems like sand on TV etc. is actually salt and you see it endlessly. You can walk into the salt pans feel the rawness of the place, there is salt in the air, in your lungs, under your feet, everywhere! It's a must do experience and makes for stunning photography
