Shaam E Sarhad Village Resort

There are amazing resorts in Bhuj, Great Rann of Kutch and Mandvi. Near Great Rann of Kutch you can stay at Hodka village(has few resorts and it is about 18 kms from GRK), Dhordo village(its the beginning of GRK and has tents are on the white desert). We would suggest that you stay in these village resorts rather than in Bhuj, only then you will get feel of Rann(we stayed in Shaam-e-sarhad, amazing resort with great service and food).

About Hodka

This is a village at the heart of the Banni grasslands, famous for its Banni handwork as well as a famous bird spotting destination during the post monsoon. Unfortunately for us, lack of rainfall meant there was no migration this year. The landscape as you cross the military establishment outside Bhuj changes from low lying desert shrubs, making their way for the dry sands of the desert (Rann). You are most definite to come across herds of camels with their shepherd’s; and the really experimental ones can ask for a trial of camels milk to the most willing tribesman (Tip: they might ask for 10 or 20 bucks, but that’s nothing compared to this experience) Before entering Hodko, you will need to take permission to enter the Rann (being a sensitive area due to its proximity to the Indo-Pak border) at a border check post just past a town called Bhiriyandara on the Bhuj-Dhordo road. All you need to do is submit your Id proof and vehicle number, and the charges for entry are Rs. 100 per person per day. This town is famous for its Mawa cake, and is a must try. Bhujodi - Hodko - Approx 90 Kms Travel time - 1hr30 mins approx.
