Criss Crossing Rann of Kutch and Rajasthan – Rann Resorts Dholavira

After a satisfying tour of Akshardham Mandir, Bhuj, we headed for Dholavira. Dholavira is a small village on an island named Khadir Bet in the Greater Rann of Kutch Lake. Because of this small village by the name of Dholavira, the entire region is now known as Dholavira. This place attracts a lot of visitors due to two attractions. One is the white salt desert and the other is the excavated site of Indus valley civilization, which is among the two large sites in India and the fifth largest in the subcontinent. We will cover both of these in detail in our forthcoming posts.

Initially, we were doing only mile munching and cruising on the national highway but soon we were on state highways and for the first time in Gujrat, we found the roads were not that good. Though the roads were tarred, but they were not smooth. However, because of the lesser traffic, we were able to maintain good speed.

When we crossed a small village, named versar, There is a straight road for a few kilometres, with ultra white Rann on both sides. This is actually an elevated road in the Rann of Kutch Lake. We parked the car on one side and got down in the Rann. There was very rare traffic and not even a single soul in the Rann. It was so calm that while walking on the salt surface, we could hear the salt crystals getting crushed under our feet.

After enjoying the white Rann for some time, we sped towards our destination of the day Rann Resorts. It is a beautiful property and is a few kilometres before the Dholavira village. The location was excellent. The entire resort was made up of Bungas. The Bungas here were not the ones as those at Dhorodo but were more modern and comfortable. The check in was smooth and we were feeling hungry. After freshening up we went to the dining hall and the lunch was served. It was simple and very delicious.

              Now it was time to enjoy the resort. It is the only resort in entire Kutch, which is on the edge of White Rann. You just walk a few steps and you are on the ramp taking you to the Rann. The rooms were very comfortable, very neat and well maintained. Every room had a small sit out. The owner of the resort Praveen Bhai was there and he himself was personally taking care of all the requirements of the guests.

The Rann view rooms of the resort offer the view of Rann through the room window and also have a sit out facing Rann. In these rooms, one can see the vast expanse of Rann of Kutch right from the luxury of the bed and see the lights of Sun and Moon making the white Rann magical.
