JEWELS IN THE DESERT.
GYPSY BELLE FROM RUN OF KUTCH. PAKISTAN

Ran of Kutch occupies a big part of the region.

Mostly marshy, the Run of Kutch runs into the horizon.

During summer it is dry and has a white coating of salt.

In monsoon, the flat desert of salty clay and mudflats,

averaging 15 meters above sea level, fills with standing waters,

interspersed with sandy islets of thorny scrub,

breeding grounds for some of the largest flocks of greater and lesser flamingos.

The Run of Kutch is home to a wide array of flora and fauna.

Migratory birds deem it an abode during diverse weather conditions.
