Gujarat: Rann of Kutch

Rann of Kutch is India’s only saline clay desert. It is located in the district of Kutch. Rann of Kutch is a unique exotic destination hard to find in many other countries, the 30,000 long desert is between the Gulf of Kutch and Indus River. The most beautiful sight in the Rann of Kutch is the amazing flocks of Flamingos. It is one of the very few breeding grounds for Flamingos in India. Rann of Kutch is the only place in Asia where the last of the three species of Asiatic wild ass still survive. The other wildlife seen here includes Fox, Jackals, Blackbuck, wolves, Nilgai antelopes etc.

The Ahmedabad airport and Railway station are the nearest to reach Rann of Kutch and the Little Rann of Kutch is well connected by road through Ahmedabad. There are options like tent camping, wildlife resorts, city hotels, home stays, general resorts etc for tourists to choose.
