Visit around full moon night. White desert looks stunning with moon light reflecting. Facilities for travellers are of good quality. Craft bazar was little costly compared to handicraft shop in Bhuj. But lot cheaper compared to branded show rooms. Very good experience and fun to be there with family and friends.

It is a huge salt deposit expanse but loses the tranquility and beauty because of the huge crowd turnout. Needs basic toilet facilities.

Can't tell if the experience is better if you stay in a tent in one of the resorts. Vehicles can't go beyond a certain point. You have to take the shuttle bus. The last bus leaves at 8 pm, so you miss out on the view which is supposed to be spectacular on a full moon night... or be prepared... More

Full Moon night is the ideal time to visit but even you don't get the full moon night then also it is the best place to visit . If you are staying in Tent City then they will arrange a transport to White Desert . If you are going on your own then you need to take prior permission from... More

Fine if you really want to see a white desert but in order to arrive yo have to park (pay for it) pay a largish entry fee, leave your passports having filled in endless forms, catch a basic bus and then walk up a busy track with many other visitors in order to take a photo and repeat the whole...

Due to global warming the salt is not thick and well set. As a result its mixed with mud and appears very unpleasant. The feet sink in, making it very hard to walk. I would say, it's a great natural phenomenon but does not need to be on anyone's bucket list. Or an experience worth missing out on.

Its one of its kind desert, its white because made up of salt. One should check before planning if its fully solid or not. Its only solid for three months in a year during winters. Also, you can the enjoy the rann till Pakistan Boarder. You have to take the permission from Bhuj with the I card of each traveler.... More
