Little Rann Of Kutch
A unique landscape that was once a part of the Arabian Sea. As the land separated from the sea by geological forces it left a vast featureless plain that is encrusted with salt and water bodies during the rainy season. On the ancient seabed there are now islands (called ‘bets’) that are covered with grass and scrub and support a variety of wildlife. Most importantly there are small herds of ‘Gudkhur’ (Asiatic wild ass), which are found nowhere else in the world. Other wildlife includes blackbuck, blue bull, the rare Indian wolf and desert fox.
