If you're starting from Ahmedabad, consider taking a coach or bus for a more comfortable journey than the train. The distance between Bhuj and Ahmedabad is about 352 kilometres and the estimated travel time is 7 to 8 hours. There are several private companies that operate sleeper buses with horizontal beds, departing from Ahmedabad to Bhuj between 8 PM and 11 PM and arriving in Bhuj between 6 AM and 8 AM the next morning. During the day, there are also various bus services available, but it's wise to check the timings with the company beforehand. The offices of these bus companies are located in the Paldi area of Ahmedabad, with Sahjanand Travels, Patel Travels, Royal Express, Shree Sahajananda Travels, and Swaminarayan Travel Agency being among the commonly used ones. Furthermore, private non-sleeper and State Transport (ST) buses offer a budget-friendly option.
The Bhuj Express and the Kutch Express are two daily express trains that run from Mumbai to Ahmedabad (8 hours) and Bhuj (16 hours in total). These trains, however, pass through Ahmedabad in the middle of the night. The schedules are set to depart and arrive at convenient hours from both Mumbai and Bhuj, but not necessarily Ahmedabad. It is advisable to check the railway timetable on https://www.railyatri.in/ to plan your journey.
Daily flights connect Mumbai to Bhuj and Ahmedabad to Bhuj. Another option to consider is Kandla Airport, which has regular flights from Mumbai. It is advisable to consult your travel agent for more information.
Upon reaching Bhuj, State Transport (ST) buses are available for travel to major destinations within the district. Private jeeps can also be rented, which is a suitable choice for larger groups. Some of the smaller destinations can only be accessed by rickshaws or chakras.
