The Great Rann of Kutch is a seasonal salt marsh in the Thar Desert border region of India and Pakistan.

One of the hottest areas of India, the flat desert of salty clay and mudflats fill with standing water during the monsoon season.

The Kutch is the only place where flamingoes breed in Pakistan and India, and the area is famous for the world's last population of Indian Wild Ass.

The salt pans in the above photograph are probably near Dandi, the small village in the Gujarat state where Gandhi lead the Salt March act of civil disobedience, and are not part of the wetlands.

The Hindi word rann means “salt marsh”.

The Lena delta is frozen tundra for about 7 months of the year, the spring thaw in May transforms the region into a lush wetland for a few months. The Vasyugan Swamp, the largest swamp in the northern hemisphere, is a tributary of the Ob River.

The Lena River is the easternmost of the three great Siberian rivers that flow into the Arctic Ocean (Ob River and the Yenisei River). The Lena is the 11th longest river in the world and has the 9th largest watershed.
