A salt marshy land, illuminating the Thar Desert on a full moon night is a sheer sight that cannot be missed. And that’s how the famous White Desert of India – Great Rann of Kutch is often described by travelers from all around the world. Lying between Gujarat in India and the Sindh province in Pakistan, this mesmerizing sight has been a hotspot not only for tourists and travelers but also for many writers, photographers and poets; especially between the months November and February. It is in these months the famous Rann Utsav is held every year.

White Desert, Bhuj Reviews

  • Ideal time to visit is Dec-Jan. If possible, plan for 2N stay in "tent" and also for "Full Moon" night. Full Moon Nigh to be experienced at White Desert close to 22:00 hrs and breathe in the experience. The mesmerizing view of the white desert (salt) makes you feel like walking on the cloud. A place must be visited at the right time of the year (December/January) only during the full moon. The sunset and sunrise make a grand view of the place. A must see place in your lifetime.

  • It is one of the wonders of the world to see white desert filled with salt pan instead of sand. It is an amazing sight to see salt filed land for acres together. It is said during June to November this area is filed with waters. We went for 2.5 km ride on camel back up to canal. It was nice. There were also people sitting in the middle of the desert waiting to see sunset. Camel ride is Es. 200 per person. Don't miss it.  Actually one has to take Border Security Force permission to enter this area. On the other side of the fence is Pakistan. But that border is not visible. Lovely place

  • An awesome place to visit during evening where you can see merger of infinity the land and sky. Excellent sunset view. Too awesome to describe....only to be felt.

  • One of the most surreal experiences in Kachchh. One should try and explore the untouched locations. Dhordo has become too commercial and is a freak show during season time. The place is ideal for visiting on a full moon night.

  • Its a heavenly experience..the place is beautiful.. you feel awestruck seeing the nature create something so beautiful. It is a phenomenon which can be witnessed only during the months Nov to Feb..January being the best! Sunsets n full moon nights are worth a visit!
