Experience@Rann of Kachchh


The Great Rann of Kachchh is one of the most magnificent landscape I have ever seen in my life till date. I have been in Ahmedabad for almost 4 years now, but never got a chance to see the Rann and it was like 'yet so near yet so far'...

Requesting some 100 people to tag along with us for the trip and after listening to equal number of nos, this weekend finally MM, MK and myself decided to go for it...

The Rann of Kachchh is a seasonally marshy region, the flat desert of salty clay and mudflats. The area was a vast shallows of the Arabian Sea until continuing geological uplift closed off the connection with the sea.

The Rann seems like a vast land of snow inhabited by no one. There was literally no one, no 'LIFE' but only 3 of us and the taxi driver. It had no trace of living organisms other than few dead insects. The place was insanely quiet and one could hear nothing, just the breeze. The only thing visible was the white land till infinite.

Its one of the most spectacular sight ever imaginable and a great gift of God to nature. This is a place worth visiting in one's lifetime and I am sure there will be no regrets at all. It was like a DREAM.....

P.S. : Best time to visit is from Nov-Feb
