White Desert, Bhuj

4.5
Explore the rich natural and cultural heritage of White Desert, a seasonal salt marsh that fills with water during the summer monsoons, but becomes accessible during winter. The expanse of white salt creates a striking visual impact, giving the area a lunar atmosphere. Popular culture contains scores of references to this otherworldly landscape, including several scenes in Salman Rushdie's "Midnight's Children," and many Indian films and songs. Established tent villages pop up during the tourist season, with locals running tours to the area's main sites (among them, flamingo breeding grounds), selling handicrafts, and offering a range of other cultural experiences. Using our custom trip planner, Bhuj attractions like White Desert can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
