visit to white rann
In the evening from 5 PM on wards, every one in the rann of kutch move towards white rann, invariably in buses & smaller vehicles. Once you get don of the vehicle,camel cart takes you nearer to the white sheet of salt spread all across, solid enough to walk. I prefer to walk , hence walked all over the white salt to extreme deep, wherein no one was there. Amazing experience.
while walking mind those ridges of solid salt..
Main beauty of rann of kutch is sunset over the white rann & on full moon night rising of moon almost simultaneously. light of moon on the white rann is majestic & soothing to eyes at night. A life time experience.
There is life all around the night at white rann, no one want to leave such an amazing place.
