White Desert, Bhuj Reviews

  • This was fun. Whole dessert full of salt and we walked till end but there was no end to this huge dessert. Full of open space and beautiful scene to watch sunset. Also its beautiful to see moon on top at night. Usually, market near dessert closes at 8pm. Though there is a market and dining places at tent city which you need to walk around a km which will be open till 10:30pm. After that, you are all on your own. There is no one to ask you to come out of dessert. You can stay till whatever time you want. We were in a group of 20, playing there on a dessert and dancing till 10PM and then we walked out till tent city, found a restaurant and had varieties of Gujju food.

  • Awesome experience! The natural beauty of the White dessert has to be seen to be believed. From red hot and burning in the desert, to a shallow sea as the Arabian sea travels about 130km inland, to the White and as the salt water evaporates... The Kachchh dessert shows the facets over the year - and each a wonder in its own right. Plenty of Activites in and around the area to keep the young ones entertained, and a few sight seeing trips in the vicinity will make your itinerary wholesome. Plan on spending 2-3 days in the area. Recommended.

  • The most amazing experience. One must visit the Rann at least once in a lifetime. You need a maximum of 2 days. The best time to visit is a full moon winter night when you are taken to the desert in the night time as well. The tents are well equipped and the whole tour is very well organized.

  • It's a mesmerizing experience which can only be experienced but could not be explained in words.. But I missed visiting it during the Super moon just by 2 days.. If i had visited on Super moon, it would have been much more beautiful.. However, the experience was no less.. It was great..

  • Amazing place to visit, but it is a bit far. It's always recommended to bring your own vehicle instead of using public transport. Moreover, petrol station is not around. It's at least 30-40 kms far from dessert. Photo point is good to view and take pictures of dessert.
