White Desert Reviews & Ratings

  • White desert is a sight to behold. It is very beautiful in the day and very mesmerizing at night. The desert is white because of a layer of salt over the desert sand. Best time to visit the desert is from late November to early March. Plan your visit in such a way that you can visit the desert on a full moon night. Highly recommended!!

  • It is a very beautiful place to be. The morning sunrise and evening sunsets are to die for. When here it is so big and plane that we can see the curvature of earth. The festival is for four months from November to February. When not in the season, the place will be flooded with sea water. Camel or horse rides are available from the entrance to the view tower which gives an exquisite view. It's best when there is full moon

  • It's beautiful, calm, serene and a great place. People should experience it. A different place in itself to visit. Sunrise viewing was also a great experience. People should wear willen clothes, jackets, gloves, woolen cap properly to counter cold wind and chilly winter. People can also enjoy camel ride here.

  • A tourist destination that must have in your list. Must visit once in life. Lots of thing to enjoy there and near by places. Beautiful scenery and especially don't miss sunset scene. The best day to be here is full moon day.

  • A different terrain altogether. You see the White desert as far as your vision can go. The sunset and sunrise is mesmerizing... Try to make it in government accommodations. The staff is super helpful and courteous. Even in the land which is almost uninhabitable, they were selling packaged water at MRP.. Hats off to the dedication and honesty of the people.
