Taken at Kala Dungar or Black Hill, Kutch, Gujarat, India 🙂
Camera: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H55

Kala Dungar is the highest point in Kutch, Gujarat, India, at 462 m. It is located at 97 km from district headquarters of Bhuj and 25 km from nearest town Khavda. This is probably the only place in Kutch from where a panoramic view of the Great Rann of Kutch is possible. Since it is located very near to the Pakistan border, there is an army post at the top; beyond here, only military personnel are allowed. The Kala Dungar is also famous for a 400 year old Dattatreya temple (Source: Wikipedia).
