Witness one of the world's largest salt deserts, Great Rann of Kutch. Measuring about 7,500 sq km (2,900 sq mi), the vast salt marsh remains dry eight out of 12 months, but during the monsoon season becomes submerged underwater. The tourist season runs from October to March, though the desert draws the largest crowds during the Rann Utsav festival, a two-month celebration that features numerous activities in the scenic salt marsh. For the most striking views, visit at sunrise or sunset, especially during the full moon.

  • The great Salt Desert or the white desert as the mark says. Breathtaking endless salt lands,a breeze with a pinch of salt. You need a permit to enter the lands, available a low price near the camps. Once there if you are not satisfied and still want to see what I captured in the pics, take a camel ride or horse ride to the galleria of footsteps where you see the endlessness.
  • Awesome place to visit once in life time especially in full moon time. Recommended months for visit are december and January. plus there is a watch tower constricted for viewing purpose. Sunset just looks awesome
  • The marshland was flooded with water during my visit in October, and I could see the salt crystals in its primal form. A natural mirror had been created by the film of water that was gathered on the vast saltwater plain.
  • The vast wide stretch of barren White landscape is enticing to the Travellers who are willing to travel far and beyond. And as we move deeper to the terrain the spray of colours like a painting appears on the Whiteness through its Nomadic people, who crosses thousands of miles to keep the Legend of Kaachch alive...
  • Spectacular place with vast lands covered with salt Place to visit Not to miss the desert during full moon with the salt glistening in the night!
