Rann of Kutch: Wildlife with a generous splattering of flora! Described as ‘a desolate area of unrelieved, sun-baked saline clay desert, shimmering with the images of a perpetual mirage’, it is famous for its attractive chestnut brown Asiatic (Wild ass), a species of wild horses and one of the world’s largest breeding colonies of Flamingos.
Quite off the beaten tourist track, the great Rann of Kutch is a seasonal salt marsh located in the Thar Desert of Gujarat. Visit the Aina Mahal (Old Palace), the Prague Mahal (New Palace) and the Swaminarayan temple. Experience the natural beauty of this remote corner of the world while exploring the rural villages and meeting the locals, who earn a living through traditional crafts like pottery and embroidery.
