Information & Acknowledgements

Kutch is located in the Northwestern state of  Gujarat in India.Bhuj, the district headquarters is well connected with Bombay through 2 fast overnight trains. there is a daily flight from Bombay-Bhuj. For those coming from other parts of India, Ahmedabad or Baroda would be good starting points.
From Bhuj, our base of Nakhatrana is 55 kms. the ancient ruins of Dholavira are about 140 kms. Hiring your own vehicle is essential as connectivity is poor.
For a wonderful trip I would like to thank
1.       Bombay Natural History Society for organising the trip & especially Nikhil Bhopale who is a very knowledgeable & enthusiastic birder. For more details visit

2.       Dr. Jugal Kishore Tiwari of CEDO birding who not only made excellent arrangements, but with his vast knowledge and experience of the birdlife of the area could take us to just the right spot at the right time.
