The Great Rann of Kutch is a magnificently beautiful place which is a must see on your visit to Kutch! What makes the visit even better is the fact that it is the home of the rare Wild ass as the area has been declared as Kutch Desert Wildlife Sanctuary. This Wild ass sanctuary of kutch is rich in other wild life species as well such as blue bull, desert wolf, flamingo, pelican amongst others.
It is one of the largest seasonal saline wetlands having an average water depth between 0.5 to 1.5 metres. By October–November each year, rain water dries up and the entire area turns into saline desert. The sanctuary supports wide variety of water birds and mammalian wildlife.
In the area controlled and patrolled by the Border Security Force (BSF) after the "India Bridge" several hundred square kilometers of Rann is pure white like snow with heavy deposit of salt crystals. The marshy Rann here becomes pure white and flat till the eye can see, till the horizon after the rain water has dried up, in the winters every year.
Since the Rann is flat like a sheet of paper in the afternoons with bright sunshine a shimmering mirage forms which is like an illusionary lake that fills the dry Rann till the eye can see.
