Kutch Tour Packages

Rarely will you come across a place which is highly covered with “nothingness”, and yet is so mesmerizing that you just don’t want to blink your eyes to miss the beauty unfolding in front. Kiomoi welcomes you to the endless desert of salt marsh, Kutch. 

The largest district in the state of Gujrat, Kutch is divided largely into two fractions; The Great Rann of Kutch, renowned for its salt desert, and the smaller Little Rann of Kutch, renowned for its Wild Ass Sanctuary. 

The Great Rann borders Pakistan and takes up a portion of the Thar desert, which stretches into Rajasthan. As a result, Kutch is home to several immigrant groups from a variety of countries, including Iran and Persia, in addition to Pakistan (Sindh) and the Marwar area of Rajasthan. One of the oldest Hindu dynasties, the Jadeja dynasty of Rajputs, controlled Kutch for hundreds of years till India became a republic.

There’s, however, a lot more vibrancy to this magnetic region with its colourful culture and heritage, and a lively bunch of locals.  
Let’s understand more about Kutch that would help you prepare for your Kutch holiday deals.
