This is one place I wanted to go for since quite long! Finally, we got a good deal at official Rann Utsav's site and packed our bags! There are many operators guaranteeing good deals but we went with the Gujarat tourism program as it had excellent ratings and pricing was also decent compared to other operators. We left from Bhopal on the 27th night and reached Ahmedabad on 28th morning, from where we took a cab to Bhuj. The entire journey takes ~5.5. hours. The Rann Utsav's officials wait at airport/railway station of Bhuj for picking up the tourists. From here, Dhordo tent city is another 1.5 hrs. As you near Dhordo, one can see some salt factories on either side. It seems like one big salt desert!
Once we reach the tent city, we immediately left for witnessing the sunset in the white desert.
