Kutch, Gujarat- The Language Of Color
I always had a wish to pack the bag, go miles and miles using local cabs, buses, auto etc., live the life of locals and try local foods. My experience of Kutch, Gujarat trip was one of the life altering lessons for me. This solo journey not only makes me confident but it makes me the true master of my own destiny.
This magic started to evolve from day one, the moment I take my first bus journey from Ahmedabad to Bhuj, Heart of Kutch (Rs. 130 in GRSTC buses). Around 1:30 pm I reached at Kukma village. Here I stayed for 3 days at Khamir Craft and Resources Centre, Kukma Village (10-15 minutes away from Bhuj). With the help of one of my friend, I found this home stay in cheapest price. But it is not available for everyone. Alternatively, you can find out hotels in low price at Bhuj. Later that day, I visited Bhuj city market and find out nearby visiting areas, routes, transportation ways etc.
Next day early morning I took a shared cab for Mandvi Beach, a port city in the western part of India in the Kutch, Gujarat region. It is famous for its Blue Arabian Sea beach and centuries old ship building yard.
That day taking a local auto (Rs. 100. excluding Palace Entry Charges), I visited Vijay Vilas Palace, market of beach and some other places nearby that beach area.
