Plan your trip

Itinerary: One Week in Kutch

Trip details:

I will start from Ahmedabad. I want to visit dholavira, bhuj, the great rann, mandvi and little rann if possible. I will book my flight tickets from Delhi depending upon the availability of the accomodation. So I would want to freeze everything asap. Thank you.

20 December 2013 - Devpur - Bhuj:

You can explore Devpur today. It is also an important cultural hub with a lot traditional handicrafts and old buildings. Devpur should ideally take you half a day. Post lunch, if you feel up to it, you can head to Bhuj (about 45 minutes from Devpur) to finish off any pending shopping or places of interest you may not have covered on 16th.

21 December 2013 - Little Rann of Kutch:

Head to the Little Rann of Kutch. It is approximately a 4 hour drive from Devpur to Little Rann. I think you will arrive by afternoon. You can head out for a safari in the evening. Also in Little Rann, there is something known as Chir Batti (meaning ghost lights). It is a natural phenomenon where people see a ball of flame floating mid-air. Because people did not know how the lights occurred, they thought is is a ghost :) Try and catch a sighting of that. It is visible in the night. As far as I know, they are visible in winter also. This is only visible in Little Rann.

22 December 2013 - Bhuj - Delhi/Ahmedabad:

You can do a morning safari today, if you like. Post safari/breakfast, you can leave for Ahmedabad and get into Ahmedabad by mid-afternoon. Relax a little in Ahmedabad before heading to the airport for your flight back home.

Hey, I've update a plan under the Itinerary tab. Let me know what you think.


Getting around:

Since the two of you are travelling alone, I'd recommend you book with tour operators. Some agents I can recommend for transport are S.K Tours - 91-2832-654495/ 91 98258 31085/ 91 96622 51424, A to Z Travels - 9925633215. If these guys don't give you a good rate, you can call Mr JP from JP Resorts, Nakhtrana on 91 94280 80097 and check with him if he can help you only with the transport. He does transport at a reasonable rate, which is why I am giving you his number. Hope this helps.
