"Amazing Place to Visit" new review

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted 4 weeks ago
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.

"Little Rann of Kutch"

  • Posted Oct 27, 2012
Little Rann of Kutch is a birding destination. But one that is awesome! It is in the middle of nowhere and there is nothing impressive except you consider endless stretches of while salt pans as beautiful. What makes this place a Birders' Paradise is the variety of birds that visit the place in winter. In a compact area, it gives you access to a large umber of exotic birds like the MacQuinn's Bustard, Short eared Owl, the Scops Owl, several species of Larks, Coursers and shrikes. The scenery of thousands of Flamingoes is a sight to cherish for the rest of your life. There are easily at least three different species of Cranes including the incomparable Damoiselle Cranes and Common Cranes. Rustic romantic huts to stay, delicious food to enjoy, and dotting staff to look after you and finally lots or birds and people who are willing to take you and show you all that you wish to see. What more can one ask for? Yes. I forgot. The Wild Asses and Jackals!

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: Birding, Birding and more Birding

Activities & things to do: Bird watching, Birding, Bird Photography

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: Take one of those lovely trains to Ahmedabad and take a taxi to Little Rann of Kutch (LRK). Gujarat is dry. So carry no liquor.

"Banni Kutch"

  • Posted Apr 5, 2011
If I have to describe the landscape of Banni I would say it is dry, quiet and sandy coloured land with ‘Juliflora’ bushes where one can enjoy the sound of ringing bells (tied around buffalos’ neck) grazing around with/without herder who wears colourful costumes to add some life in this dry and harsh region and many of them are still enjoying their simplicity of life, far way from urban issues.. Aren’t they lucky?

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: Dhordo Hodka Ludiya Bhirandiyara Kalo Dungar (black hills) are some of the key villages in banni one must visit

Activities & things to do: Embroidery, Mud work, traditional way of living, seeing sunrise or sunset in the great rann or from the Kalo dungar..

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: Private vehicle is most convenient way to get there and travel around Banni as the Govt buses schedule won't suit you.

"Desert Adventures"

  • Posted Feb 16, 2008
I think one may personally experience what I had experienced in Kutch because there are so many places to visit like Great Rann of Kutch, Kalo Dungar (Hill) Mandvi Beach, Lakhpat Fort, and many religious places

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: In Shopping be careful of touts and some shoppers who used to deal with tourist for many years and charge higher so it is advisable to go to place where product actually made by artisan and pay them. that's fair deal according to me

Activities & things to do: Explore great rann of Kutch and trekking is best thing to do in Kutch.

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: Buses Private and Govt. are available from Ahmedabad, Baroda, Gandhinagar and all other major cities of Gujarat and Train from Mumbai 'kutch express' and 'Sayaji Nagri' direct to Bhuj.

Kutch Info

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
