The Rann (the word means ‘salt marsh’) is an unusual place — miles and miles of greys, whites and blacks formed by salty mudflats and shimmering stretches of water. It’s a vast seasonal marshland, for months inundated with seawater, which then dries up leaving behind large swathes of salt.

ABOUT Great Rann of Kutch

Dry salty air, cracked ground beneath and an expanse of parched earth sprawling around you, Great and Little Rann of Kutch make for a surreal experience. Bordered on one side by Gulf of Kutch known for its extreme tides and on one by the world’s largest salt desert, Rann of Kutch is divided into the Great and Little Rann of Kutch.


Seemingly dead and barren, Little Rann of Kutch actually supports a unique and diverse ecosystem and has India’s largest wildlife sanctuary- Wild Ass Sanctuary. A veritable paradise for ornithologists and amatuer bird watchers, Little Rann of Kutch is best explored behind the wheels of a jeep. Speckled with marshes that are crowded with water birds and dotted with Agarias, salt pan workers, be sure to take a guide along as its very easy to lose your way out in this salty desert. Opt for a bullock cart ride that will take you through the vibrant, multi-coloured villages of Kutch that are only too happy to extend their hospitality to anyone who passes by their barren home. Be sure to visit Modhera Sun temple, Bahuchara Mata temple and Rani ki vav and window shop for the exquisite Patola saris.


Now the Great Rann of Kutch is best traversed atop a camel, with the full moon night best time to glimpse it in its full glory. Full moon nights every month are also the time for cultural events at Dhorodo. For the penultimate cultural experience visit Great Rann of Kutch in December when the festival of Ram Utsav is held.
