Crossed LRK from both sides in our ride las March. While going to Bhuj, we rode from Udaipur - Modhera Sun Temple - Little Rann of Kutch (Desert Coursers at Jainabad). On our way back we rode from Bhuj - Dholavira (night stay) - Benap- Haliwaw - Barmer - Jailsalmer. Roads were mostly good to awesome with sparse traffic.

Sachin... your post is the one i keep coming back to as the only comprehensive one for crossing the LRK. So permit me to ask some questions -
1. Can it be done in a sedan, specially given the rough part towards palasava?
2. Considering it would only be two people (me & better half), is it safe?
3. Are there any tracks or any other resources we can use?
4. Would there be guides ready to accompany us throughout till palasava?
5. Any idea on the timing of the forest office for permits?

Would be indebted for your help! And any other resources you could point me to would be good!

We are planning to do this in March, during Holi. Plan is to do Mumbai Zainabad on day 1 and then next day cross little rann to bhuj/hodka side.

Yes, unless it is civic.

Its safe. Start in morning.

3. Are there any tracks or any other resources we can use?

I had tracked using my tracks but dont hav file now. But no need to worry.

4. Would there be guides ready to accompany us throughout till palasava?

No guides.
5. Any idea on the timing of the forest office for permits?
I guess post 8.30 or 9.00 not sure.

Hi Sachin...!!


I (along with my wife) m planning Road Trip to Kutch (including crossing LRK, as per your route) in my Breeza in last week of Jan 2017 (Jan 30th). A few Queries :

i. Can permit be taken by someone other than me, in advance (I may requesting my colleagues posted in Gujarat to arrange.
ii. Can the permit issues for LRK is valid to Cross it, legally.
iii. Can anyone help me with GPS trail, to avoid getting lost.

My probable route is
(Delhi - Jodhpur)
(Jodhpur -Sanchor - Zianabad)
(Zianabda - LRK - Bhuj)
(Bhuj - Lakhpat - Koteshwar - Mandavi - Devpur - Bhuj)
(Bhuj - Dhardo - Kalo Dunger - Kanjarkot Fort Border - Bhuj)
(Bhul - Dholavirs)
(Dholavira - Modhera - Patan - Udaipur)
(Udaipur - Delhi)

Advice on above route and Tips for kutch ..
