How to reach White Desert in Kutch

The Rann of Kutch spans the two countries of India and Pakistan. Due to the sensitive nature of the border, permission is necessary to visit the Rann. This can be obtained by submitting a written request, along with your photo identity, at the Bhirandiyara village checkpoint, which is about 55 kilometers from Bhuj. While at it, taste the wonderful mawa, a milk sweet, for which the village is famous.

You can also apply for permission at the Gujarat Police DSP office near Jubilee Ground in Bhuj. This permission letter must be presented at the entry point of the Rann.

Dhordo, which lies about 86 kilometers from Bhuj, is the best point of entry into the desert. The government is also developing the village as the ‘Gateway to the Rann’. The other entry points are Hodka and Kharaghoda Village.

The easiest way to get to an entry point for the Rann of Kutch is to travel from Bhuj. Bhuj is connected to major cities across India via Air, Train, and Road. Once in Bhuj, you can hire a taxi or take a bus to the Rann.

There are private tour operators who organize guided tours across the Rann, starting from Bhuj. They will also take you to the wildlife sanctuaries, the handicraft villages and other popular points of attraction. You can choose a tour convenient for you and enjoy the beauty of the salt desert.

The Kala Dungar or the Black hill is an offbeat view of the Rann of Kutch. Set 458 meters above sea level, it allows you views of the Rann right across the border into Pakistan. Just about twenty-five kilometers from the village Khavda, (this is seventy-five kilometers from Bhuj), the village is home to artisans who specialize in local arts such as block printing and Ajrakh block printing. It is best advised to take your own transport, if planning to visit these places, as public transport to them is infrequent.
