A train journey of 15 hours from Mumbai lead us to Bhuj. Before heading to Rann of
Kutch we had brief visit to Bhuj Palace. Just a 2 km away from Bhuj railway station is
a 19th Century Palace called Prag Mahal. You would need a 30 min walk to explore
this place, what amazed us most was the giant doors of this building and huge Durbar hall. Most part this amazing building was damaged during an earthquake but after certain repair its open for public viewing.
Before we would visit the land of marvel, we checked in our Hotel. Though tent city in Kutch is the apt place to stay, there are multiple resorts in and around Rann of Kutch which are more affordable and reasonable than Tent City options.
Most of these resorts gives an amazing experience of Village life by providing cultural activities and traditional food. Almost all of these resorts have a live music played by local Kutchi people with a Bonfire.
After a warm welcome from our hotel staff and fresh up we headed to the land of Marvel. As you are neared to the Rann of Kutch , one will be welcomed by colorful banners about the Rann Utsav.
One should buy an entry ticket and walk towards the main gate. From the main gate its around 1 km to reach the Salt Dessert. One can chose either to walk or to hop on for an Camel safari. As we are a couple who would want to experience everything, one way we chose the camel safari and the other way to walk around peacefully and admire the mother nature of this marvel land.
