White Desert, Bhuj

(700+ reviews on the web)
Desert
Explore the rich natural and cultural heritage of White Desert, a seasonal salt marsh that fills with water during the summer monsoons, but becomes accessible during winter. The expanse of white salt creates a striking visual impact, giving the area a lunar atmosphere. Popular culture contains scores of references to this otherworldly landscape, including several scenes in Salman Rushdie's "Midnight's Children," and many Indian films and songs. Established tent villages pop up during the tourist season, with locals running tours to the area's main sites (among them, flamingo breeding grounds), selling handicrafts, and offering a range of other cultural experiences. Add White Desert and other attractions to your Bhuj trip itinerary using our Bhuj trip builder.

  • Loved the place. You get one of the best views around in India. A must visit place for everyone. Nice to visit at sunset or sunrise. Best time is in December. Need to take permission from Bhuj, though BSF soldiers keep your identity card till you return to let you go in.
  • I have visited this place with my friends on 15 Oct 16. The desert is awesome...the road connecting from bhuj to white desert is having different view... A single road connects it with kms of desert... No trees and no houses... The Rann of kuch is very big... Altough it is advised to visit in the month of november and december as in october we could not see full white desert because of water.. there was water just like see... Water and water.... But that was also a amazing experience.... This salty desert is only here in kuchch... Visit this place once in lifetime....
  • White Desert is one of a kind and a memorable experience. The sunset is not that good. But Don't miss the sunrise from observation tower. You will regret it. Wake at 6 am and Go there. Its magical. The runn is not yet fully dried. Best time will be mid to end of.November

  • We went there on 6th November, and there was still water, so we couldn't see the"White Rann". If you plan to be there, be there in late December.
