The Great Rann of Kutch is a salt marsh in India which lies in the Thar Desert and is quite unique and surreal. An hour and a half drive from Bhuj would take you to Rann of Kutch, which can be accessed through a small village called Dhordo.
We start our 2 nights 3 days Tour of White Rann of Kutch from the city of Bhuj. The city of Bhuj has an interesting play of both old world civilization and also modern day city.
