The very name of Kutch conjures images of an interesting landscape with salty marshlands and hardly any vegetation. Kutch is the largest district in Gujarat and the second largest in the country after Leh in the state of Jammu and Kashmir. Bhuj is the district headquarters of the state.
Situated on the Gulf of Kutch, it is apt for travellers who enjoy being steeped in culture and heritage. The district has as many as 18 varied tribes living harmoniously despite their distinct language, culture and customs. This is what makes Kutch unique and an exciting destination if you are looking for something different than run of the mill tourist destination.
