Our beautiful country India is loaded with wonderful places to see, one such place is the Great Rann of Kutch in the state of Gujarat.
The Great Rann of Kutch is a salt marsh in the Thar Desert in the Kutch District of Gujarat, India. It is about 7500 sq km in area and is reputed to be one of the largest salt deserts in the world. This area has been inhabited by the Kutchi people.
We had been to the Kutch festival which begins from the month of December to February.
We travelled in train from Mumbai to Bujj,its 14 hrs journey to Bujj.We took train in the afternoon and reached Bujj the next day Morning. The Great Rann of Kutch was done as a package trip.
Once you get down the train station, you have refreshing room with juices and places to refresh and take some rest. We were taken in bus from Bujj to Kitchen city, the roads were clean and it was a great drive.
We reached the Great Rann of Kutch and we were welcomed with great Indian cultures of Molas (drums) Sindur and we got to be seated in the lounge waiting for the room keys.
We got our keys and the caravan was ready to pick our bags and drop us to the room. We were taken to the tent rooms.The rooms were of different varieties and facilities,you can choose what you would prefer. We wanted to stay in the tents, it was well maintained and hygiene.We freshen up and went for lunch.The caravan was waiting for us to drop us to the Lunch hall. The lunch was yummy, fully vegeterain and got variety to eat. We finished with lunch and it's was very sunny in the afternoon so decided to go take some rest in our rooms.
In the evening we went to see the sunset in the white sand. We had our evening snacks and got into the bus to see the sunset.
We arrived at the White sand, there were camels which took us a distance from the start point as the ground was damp with salt embedded.
The camel stopped in the centre of the white sand and we could see the beautiful round sun. The dawn of the mysterious sun was a treat to the eyes. We took some great pictures of the sunset.
We got back to our stay and there was evening program organised for all of us, singing, dancing, drama, Poppet show. we had great fun in the evening. We have live music in the dinning hall so that we can listen to music and have dinner. We had song dedications done as well. After dinner, we got back to our rooms and slept.
