Kutch region has an impression of being a distinctive land. It is a region that differs in celebrating prosperity on an exceptional parameter. Divided into two sub-regions, Great Rann of Kutch and Little Rann of Kutch.
The Rann of Kutch is a seasonal salt marsh located in the Thar desert in Gujarat. Situated about 130 km from Ahmedabad.
During the monsoon months, the Rann of Kutch is submerged in sea water. As the sea water finally begins to recede in October, the Agariyas move in and begin the elaborate process of salt farming. First, they dig wells to pump out highly saline groundwater from the lake of brine that lies 40 feet below the crust.
The salt of Kutch ten times saltier than sea water, this lake of brine is what keeps the economy of the area afloat.
