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.

    • Trip to Kutch

      Had a very satisfactory trip. "De Voyager" were very supportive from the planning stage. They answered all questions whenever asked. Ms. Trupti Roy co-ordinated the trip excellently well. We never had a feeling of not being cared for during the trip. We are a senior citizen couple. Hotels at Ahmedabad were not upto expectations. Treebo Trend Ahmedabad was the worst and Hotel Bait inn had a " do not care"attitude towards guests. This feed back was given to Ms. Trupti. In fact they changed from Treebo to Hotel Bait Inn on my complaint. I am happy they took action to make me comfortable. Good car with a polite driver was provided who took care of our comfort in a very unobtrusive way. Did not have to wait for him anywhere. He took care to find clean eating places in journey and always pointed out the place where he would come and meet us after we have visited the site. As some travellers have pointed out they should take care of closing days for some sites while drawing up the itinerary. Overall a happy journey.

      Driver was good. Itinerary planning was little poor. They have note considered that so many attractions are closed on Monday. On Somnath we couldn't cover all things since they were placed into next day's plan. Hotels were not upto the mark. Specially Sun Plaza at Somnath was terrible. Please exclude this hotel for all other travellers so that you will not receive negative reviews. It was not at all 3 star. It was like staying at normal lodge. Hotel Manek Svasti was good, staff and facilities were nice. Sun plaza was horrible. Lords Inn at Vadodara was okay. Bait Inn at Ahmedabad was again bad. Spending an evening at dwarka beach.

      The cab was good and the driver was good in the sense that his driving was good but he was not so mixing type and didn't talk so much which would have been better if he communicated in a friendly manner.The hotels were all good but except the ahmedabad hotel rest all hotels complementary breakfast was pathetic..Iwas very sorry rather surprised to find that the road conditions of the entire trip was the worst which made the trip very very tireing and painful.

    • Trip to Kutch

      We had a nice trip. Couple of feedbacks: 1.Driver was really nice. Only if he had given more information on the places we visited, would have been great 2. VITS devbhumi is really nice. Value for money. 3. Heritage in Somnath was not good at all. Rooms are not good, so we had to change the allocated room. In the entire hotel there were only 2 guests including us! Its very far from the temple, so not suggestible. 4. Diu beaches did not have water sport activities, that was disappointing for us. Otherwise, everything went well...

      It was a memorable journey. Indeed a very fantastic one. Only point of disappointment was Hotel pristine. It's near to Airport, but felt rooms are not as per the fare charged. Not as good as other restaurants we stayed. Stay at Dwarka, Somnath . Entire journey in the car and yes, the Driver Tejas Barot. Extremely happy with his work... We could cover all places coz of his time sense..

      As promised there were no surprises in the trip. Everything was as per the itinerary . Good TT as it was almost new . We never called the agent to enquire about anything as everything was as per the itinerary. Definitely recommend De Voyager.

    FAQ's of Kutch

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

     

    The Rann of Kutch used to be the part of the sea before an earthquake turned that exposed sea bed into a desert. As the monsoon season arrives, the Rann of Kutch merges in sea water, and the sea water finally recedes in the month of October. And, that’s how the whole process of salt farming happens.

    With the sea on one side and desert on the other side, the Rann of Kutch is filled with an array of ecosystem, such as desert vegetation and mangroves. And, the deserts of Kutch are abode of such wildlife that can bear the harsh conditions of the region.

     

     

    The white desert in Rann of Kutch is the salty desert which it is made of. Considered as the largest salt desert, Rann of Kutch is famous for its white desert. 

    Ahmedabad is considered one of the safest city in India, especially for solo travellers. The Gujaratis are very warm and welcoming people. However, it is best to take care of yourself like in any other place during travel and keep your luggage safe at all times.

    While Gujaratis are known for their vegetarianism, non-veg food is not all that hard to find in major cities in Gujarat. There are plenty of restaurants serving all kinds of cuisine in Gujarat.

    Navaratri, Rann Utsav, and Uttarayan (kite festival) are famous festivals in Gujarat. The Bhavnath Fair in Junagadh, Vautha Fair in Vautha, Shamlaji Mela near Himmatnagar, and Dang Darbar in Ahwa are popular fairs to visit in Gujarat.
