Kutch Info

  • State: Gujarat
  • Famous for/as: Jungle

This district of Gujarat brings to mind a unique landscape with salty marshlands and no vegetation. Situated on the Gulf of Kutch, leading to the Arabian Sea, it is also known as the Rann of Kutch. The word Kutch or Kachchh, means tortoise in Sanskrit, and interestingly the shape of the region is rather like a tortoise. The word also means something that becomes alternately wet and dry, and it is true that the Rann of Kutch becomes submerged under water during the rains. Kutch is the second-largest district in India after Leh. The headquarters of the district are at Bhuj town. Tourism activities here involve desert safaris by jeep, camel rides, shopping for the unique local handicrafts, and sighting the rare wild ass found in the Little Rann of Kutch sanctuary. The people of Kutch comprise of nomadic, semi-nomadic and artisan tribes who contribute to the rich folk art and culture of the region. The embroidered garments with mirror-work and the camel wool shawls from here are extremely famous; as is the chunky silver jewellery and carved woodcraft. You could visit the villages around Bhuj as each of them makes

"Enchanting destination" new review

  • 6/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
Quiet pure and serene place. Somnath is One of the best temples laden with history. The Civilization findings at Dholavira are older than their counterparts (Harappa & Mohenjo-daro). Trekking is best thing to do in Kutch. The Fossil park & Rann of Kutch are very nearby & are worth visiting. Best place for archaeologists. Bird Enthusiasts will find 'Surkhab' (migratory bird) en route to Dholavira and in Rann of Kutch.

"A must watch place"

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
The must watch places in the Kutch are aina mahal, prag mahal, kutch fort, white rann, the wildlife, vijay vilas palace is also a must watch. The beaches of mundra, dabhadi and many more are super awesome and presumes to be like a foreign destination. The beach of dabhadi is a must watch place. Far from the main city lies this beach full of clear blue water which is quite rare in Mumbai.

"A very good destination for peace of mind"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted Feb 17, 2015
If you want to have a offbeat or relaxed and religious holiday you must visit kutch. With lot of Jain mandir its an sacred place for jain. There are many other place like historic monument which make a holiday a classic hit. If you are planning to visit kutch you must visit Bhuj and many small villages near bhuj.

"A place with beautiful culture and tradition"

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted Sep 27, 2014
Kutch is extremly beautiful during the festival rann utsav. The folk dance, camel ride, full moon, the bonfire and the colourful attires, makes it all. Buy painted pottery, wooden carvings, chaniya choli with hand embroidery, mirror work and bandhini in vibrant colours. Apart from all this, do not miss to take a ride around the city in the Chhakdas. They are colourful modes of transport which are like a cross between a semi-covered motorcycle and an auto rickshaw.

"Ravechi Fair in Kutchh"

  • 5/7
  • Posted Sep 11, 2014
The one reason why one would want to visit Kutch is to get a glimpse of the colourful and warm tribal who live in this area. If you are interested in India this is one place to visit for sure.

Ravechi Ma Nu in Kutchhi or "Ravechi Mother's " temple is about 15 kilometers from the nearest tiny town of Rapar and about 90 minutes drive from 62 kilometres away, Bhachau.

The fair is a two day affair during late August or early September based on the lunar calendar, and thus far has remained to be in the pristine domain of rural kaleidoscope.

Tribes like the Rabari, Ahir and others visit the fair associated with the special day here. And yes - as a big city bred visitor to this place, I can guarantee that the opinion we have about tribal women and men will surely take a hit - these are beautiful, handsome, warm and sociable people - they admire and respect people. And contrary to beliefs - most of them aren't as poor.

Best place to stay if one is mobile, as we were, is Bhachau. Rapar has a couple of shoddy "guest houses" - quite a rip-off during the fair days, for dirty toilets.

"Beautiful museums and fabulous beaches"

  • 7/7
  • Posted Jul 27, 2014
It was an amazing experience to visit Kutch, Gujarat. There were many museum to visit in Bhuj. There were three types of museums like local museum, history museum and art museum. Prag Mahal, Aina Mahal and Kutch museum. There were many religious places like Swaminarayan Temple and Hamirsar Lake where Kutch Carnival was organised by Gujarat Government. They also organised Rann Utsav in Dhordo, Kutch. White Rann which looks amazing at sunrise and sunset was an awesome place. It looks more fabulous in full moon light. Cultural program and fireworks were amazing at the carnival. In Mandvi, there was marvelous blue beach and Vijay Vilas Palace. Must take a camera to take beautiful lifetime memories of your Kutch visit.

"Amazing Place to Visit"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted Jun 28, 2014
The place has its own charm. If you love tranquility and peace, this is the place you have to visit. I had a great time indeed. This is a kind of a place that makes you fall in love. Well, there are no fancy things to see here for sure, but for those who love deserts and loneliness this can be a good place indeed.

"Only of its kind salt dessert."

  • 7/7
  • Posted Oct 7, 2013
It's your turn to visit an unique and probably only of its kind salt dessert. Walking on the salt dessert at Dhordo I literally felt walking on another planet. Wild ass sanctuary in little rann of Kutch is worth visit.
There are archeological sites like Dholavira (part of the Indus Valley Civilization or Harappan culture, dating back to 4500 years ago ), temples like Koteshwar, Kalo dongar, beaches like Mandvi and Pingaleshwar and many more to visit.
Kutch is also famous for exquisite Handicrafts.
Hotels and good food is available, its adviseable to carry snacks and water while visitng Lakhpat, kalo Dongar.
