Todays day was very well spent. Started my day from Bhuj (where i had booked a room) to Kala dongar, which is the highest spot near the Rann. It gives bird eye view of the white Rann which really is a treat to watch. There is Datta temple where daily pooja is performed. From Kala dongar i departed to India bridge which is a bridge on border check post and pictures are not allowed to be clicked here due to its strategic importance, this bridge was destroyed by Indian army in 1971 to prevent pakistan from entering here and later constructed it. Had a chat with soldier on the checkpost about the overall region.
After this left to Dhordo where the White Rann exists, it was almost 50 kms from india bridge. Was very much delighted to see the white salt Rann strechted across a radius of almost 70 kms. Was eagerly waiting for the sunset. sunset here has a altogether different experience. I was a bit worried about travelling alone to Bhuj from here as its almost 85 kms and the road is queit isolated at night. But by gods grace met two Mumbai riders who were also planning to ride back to bhuj at night.
Finally at 6pm we saw the safron sun drowing in the white Rann, it was the best sunset i ever saw in my life. At almost 10 pm we left for Bhuj, even after wearing 2 sweat shirts and a riding jacket i was shivering in cold after driving just 20 kms and my hands were numb due to cold. We took a tea break and again continued the journey, after almost an hour we reached Bhuj. Thanks to the two Mumbai riders (Ravindran and Suresh) who accompanied me till Bhuj. Todays day was full of excitment, thrill and satisfaction to the full extend.
