Due to global warming the salt is not thick and well set. As a result its mixed with mud and appears very unpleasant. The feet sink in, making it very hard to walk. I would say, it's a great natural phenomenon but does not need to be on anyone's bucket list. Or an experience worth missing out on.

The white salt planes of the Kutch Raan is a must to see. Book early on full moon nights. Obtain a permit on site with photo ID. It's a long walk to the tower platform otherwise rent a camel ride R50-100 pp It's a rush to get back after sunset and camel rent increases!
