Little Rann of Kutch - Wildlifers Paradise

Little Rann Of Kutch, also known as Chota Rann of Gujarat is one of the best places for wildlife and nature lovers. Known to have more than 300 bird species and one of the best place to see Indian Wild Ass - Khur / Gudkhur. Recognised by UNESCO as a Biosphere reserve it is the last refuge for the Indian Wild Ass. Declared a wild ass sanctuary spanning almost 5000 Sq Km, it is traditionally used for Salt panning and now for shrimp farming.

I got a chance to visit this beautiful land when I was invited by Rotary Club of Wadhwan City for giving a presentation on Indian wildlife. Here is a glimpse of what you can expect at Little Rann:

I would like to Thank Mr Chetan Bhai and all members of Rotary Club of Wadhwan City because of whom this trip could materialise. And last but not the least my Dear friend Vikrant Patel, My Pleasure Holidays, Ahmedabad who accompanied me for the trip.
