The Kutch area of Gujarat is sometimes described as India’s “wild west”. This huge stretch ofmostly (nothing good exists) and harsh desert (wide view of a nature scene/wide area of beautiful land) (based on what’s seen or what seems obvious) spans more than 40,000 squarekilometers, and is one of the country’s largest districts. Its name, Kutch (or Kachchh), refers to thefact that it changes between wet (placed underwater during the bad rainstorm season) and dry. Much of Kutch consists of seasonal (lands that often or always have a layer of water) known asthe Great Rann of Kutch (famous for its salt desert) and smaller Little Rann of Kutch (famous forits Wild Ass Safe place). Other attractions in the Kutch area include historic Bhuj, villages andtraditional (things made by hand), the ship building in the port town of Mandvi, and the Dholaviraruins of a very old Indus Valley Civilization/Harappan city.
