Villages around Bhuj

The area north of the city of Bhuj is home to a thriving tribal culture where each village or group of villages specialises in a different craft- embroidery and stitch-work, leatherwork, carving, painting and more. This is a great place to meet villagers who are genuinely warm and welcoming and to get a taste of life in this most inhospitable environment.
