Kutch district (also spelled as Kachchh) (, ) is district of Gujarat state in western India. Covering an area of 45,612&nbsp;kmĀ², it is the third largest district of India after Ladakh (173266.37&nbsp;km<sup>2</sup>) and Barmer (71601.24&nbsp;km<sup>2</sup>).

The Rann is famous for its marshy salt flats which become snow white after the shallow water dries up each season before the monsoon rains.

The district is also famous for ecologically important Banni grasslands with their seasonal marshy wetlands which form the outer belt of the Rann of Kutch.

Kachchh District is surrounded by the Gulf of Kachchh and the Arabian Sea in south and west, while northern and eastern parts are surrounded by the Great and Small Rann (seasonal wetlands) of Kachchh.
