Saurashtra & Kutch Visit
Saurashtra, also known as ‘Kathiawar Peninsula’ is a major part of the state of Gujarat sprawling southward from the Northern hills and marshes to reach the extreme wave-washed coastlines along the Arabian sea with Gulf of Cambay cutting into the land towards its eastern side and Gulf of Kutch cutting into the land towards its west. A tour of Gujarat Saurashtra helps you catch glimpses of the most ‘diverse Gujarat which is inhabited by wealthy industrialists and cattle rearing nomadic tribes alike.
The Rann of Kutch, also known as the Great Rann of Kutch (there’s a Little Rann of Kutch as well), is a remarkable place to visit in Gujarat. Much of it consists of the world’s largest salt desert, measuring around 10,000 square kilometers. What makes it even more amazing is that the salt desert is underwater during the main monsoon season in India. For the remaining eight months of the year, it’s an enormous stretch of packed white salt. Here’s all the information you need to visit it.
