White Desert, Bhuj Reviews

  • Amazing place to visit with the family. Interesting events happen during the period of November, December, and January. Best time to visit: Winters(Nov-Jan) after 5pm during sunset.

  • Nice tourist spot. One of the shining jewel of Kutch, Gujarat. Transportation facilities available for all - specially beneficial to old age people - to go till the point where White Desert starts. Proper security arrangements have been made by the government. Also, when we had gone in December - nearby there was a mela sort - with many individuals were selling clothes, shoes, bags, etc. Enjoyed!!!

  • Seriously, when you visit there... You're completely speechless by seeing the beautiful scenery around you... How nature created a desert all WHITE made of salt.. a camel ride to the river is also a great experience

  • The white desert is heart of kachchh. A beauty of white desert attracts you. You must visit in full moon. I visited white dessert in the monsoon season. The white desert is covered with the Arabic sea water during the monsoon season

  • Its worth to visit great rann of katch and stay in tent house.. adventure activities also carrying out there and one of the best sunset you get to see and white salt shines under full moon light so plan your trip on full moon day and check for weather conditions before doing so...
