Walking the salt flats of Gujarat
Rann of Kutch is a hidden delight of Gujarat. A seasonal salt marsh, the white land stretches as far as the eye can see. At any point you can be the only person depending on how far into the desert you wander. I had to grab a fistful of salt to fully believe this was a salt desert. If you don't want to walk you can always ride a camel into the desert - it definitely makes for a pretty picture! To get here, you can rent a car with driver for $20-30 for the day from your hotel. Stay at the little village of Hodka at the Shaam-E-Sarhad resort which is a community managed project to promote sustainable livelihoods. Tip: Stay for sunset - it's magical.
