The Great Rann of Kutch is the world's largest salt desert and is a remarkable journey to be undertaken on a full moon night. It's the world's largest salt desert, measuring over 16,000 square kilometers. What makes it even more amazing is that it's underwater during the main monsoon season in India. For the remaining eight months of the year, it's an enormous stretch of packed white salt. The place is about 86 kms from Bhuj via the Dhordo route.
Kalo Dungar or Black Hill is the highest point in Kutch and is about 90 kms from Bhuj. The panaromic view of the Great Rann of Kutch desert merging with the Rann of Kutch lake is breathtaking,
Permits: The Rann of Kutch is quite a sensitive area, due to its proximity to the Pakistani border. Therefore, written permission is required to visit it. This is obtainable from the Gujarat Police DSP office in Bhuj
