Little Rann of Kutch
The Little Rann of Kutch is possibly the most startling landscape in India. Never mind sand-dunes, tea hills, or tropical coastline…how about miles and miles of salt marsh? There is more to this barren expanse however: the area is dotted with ‘beyts’, islands of grass and scrub which draw wildlife from all around, and is in fact one of the most biologically diverse in the entire Subcontinent. As well as being the last refuge of the endemic Indian Wild Ass, the salt pan draws in a variety of migratory bird species, as well as deer, desert fox, and wolf.
