How to reach: Dholavira is situated at a distance of about 200km from Bhuj, the largest city in Kutchh region of Gujarat. The best way to reach is to hire a private vehicle. The road from Bhuj to Dholavira is quite good and passes through picturesque White Runn (salt desert).
Where to stay: There are very limited accommodations options in Dholavira and it is advisable to stay in Bhuj, or in homestays in one of the villages on the way. We stayed in Ramji Bhai’s ‘Morea Eco Farm’ in chobari village near Bhachau town.
Other Important Info: There are no restaurants, hotels or even shops in or around Dholavira or for several kms before so carry eatables and drinking water or you can ask your guide if he can arrange authentic Kutchh meal in his home, they usually are more than eager to offer cheap and simple meals. Just a few kms ahead is a fossil park for which safari jeeps and guides can be hired from dholavira, the road leading to fossil park is not in good state so taking personal or hired taxi is not advisable.
