About Kutch Tourism

Tourism in Kutch brings the visitors close to its surreal beauty and shows them all the best reasons to get enticed with the vast stretches of white salt spread over the shores of Rann of Kutch. The Kutch travel guide advises tourists to visit between December–February, during which Kutch celebrates the most popular Rann Festival in which the complete grandeur of the beach is decorated meticulously with numerous cultural festivals and adventure activities. Tourism in Kutch district supplements the visitors with the glimpses of our neighboring country Pakistan and the Indo-Pakistan border.

History of Kutch

The region of Kutch still encompasses many numerous sites that belong to the popular Indus Valley civilization. Controlled by Menaders and Indo-Scythians, later it got ruled by the Maurya Empire. Being influenced by the Western Satraps in the first century, the region came under the control of many empires. Eventually, as it also came under the British Raj in 1819, it became a state after the independence of India under the Union of India in 1950.

Culture of Kutch

Famed for its traditional and cultural heritage, here locals can be found to be engaged in some or other creative art form. The folk music, dance and art attract thousands of visitors to this place. Prolific in embroidery work, the locals of Kutch create beautiful garments densed with motifs. The staple food of the region is bajra, kadhi, khichdi and milk.

Best of Kutch

Sprawling over an area of more than 45000 sq km, the Great Rann of Kutch is one of the largest districts in India. Replete with splendid mud architecture, exquisite handicrafts, and spellbinding apparels, this region is defined by its creative artwork.

Let’s explore all the major tourist places in Kutch through our detailed Kutch travel guide:

Rann of Kutch Festival

Being one of the most amazing festivals of Kutch, Rann Utsav is a portrayal of the ethnic beauty of its rural area. Located at a distance of about 85 kms from Bhuj, this place attracts thousands of tourists every year. Besides guest accommodation, this place also encompasses a club house, a conference hall, a cafe, and a rejuvenation centre that make it even more attractive. Come here to witness some entertaining shows and performances, and to buy creative handicrafts that are worth of taking back home along.

Kutch Museum

If one wants to dig into the history and culture of this region, then Kutch Museum comes as the best recommendation for them. Nestled in the heart of the city, it was established in the year of 1877. Here, one can witness the largest collection of Kutch’s local currency and Kshatrapa inscriptions along with Kutchi script. Apart from that one can also get acquainted with the tribal culture, and enjoy the exhibition of paintings, sculptures, metal work and much more that used to prevail in the region of Kutch.

Bhuj

Tourism in Kutch begins from Bhuj which marks the beginning of the Rann of Kutch and draws specific attention to the Mandvi beach located here. One of the best places to visit in Kutch, the Narayan Sarovar located in Bhuj has earned huge popularity owing to its intermixing of 5 pious lakes namely Man Sarovar, Pampa Sarovar, Bindu Sarovar, Pushkar Sarovar and Narayan Sarovar. The breathtakingly beautiful sight of Hamirsar Lake included in the Kutch tour guide can be enjoyed with a walk around its border.

Kutch tourism never misses out on the beauty of Kandla Port and Mundra Port, the joint conjecture of which is mainly visited for the rare sightings of various species of birds. For historical references book a day for the Anjar town and Gandhidham which is the capital of Kutch.

Tourism in Gujarat offers the list of authentic dishes too. Owing to the overwhelming influence of Jainism and Buddhism, the food here has the tastiest shade of vegetarian delicacies. Kutch has its own traditional delicacy of Bajra-na-Rotla which is accompanied by Lassi, Buttermilk or Chhas. The place breathes within the essence of Gujarati thali, chakri, dhokla, papar, Kachumber, fafda, sev, Khandvi, and Khaman.

      We had a nice trip. Couple of feedbacks: 1.Driver was really nice. Only if he had given more information on the places we visited, would have been great 2. VITS devbhumi is really nice. Value for money. 3. Heritage in Somnath was not good at all. Rooms are not good, so we had to change the allocated room. In the entire hotel there were only 2 guests including us! Its very far from the temple, so not suggestible. 4. Diu beaches did not have water sport activities, that was disappointing for us. Otherwise, everything went well...

      My parents wanted to travel Gujrat and though TT i got in touch with De Voyger. They did an excellent job starting from designing the itinerary catering to my wishes to dropping my parents to the airport. Special shout out to Trupti Madam who was always available to address our concerns. The driver discontinued in the middle but a replacement was quickly given. Thanks De Voyger for the service. Hotels were upgraded without additional charges.

      it's not so likely when only "DE VOYAGER HOSPITALITY" is concerned, because we had a mixed bag experience. We were happy that when agent spoke to us and guided with all the elements according to our requisites and without any bargain whole amount was paid from our end. All of a sudden two from our trip were dropped because of emergency, as we booked two days before our trip, inspite of the terms and conditions we thought that some refund we may get for hotel and small vehicle. To our disappointment room was cancelled, and was alloted to someone, i endorse this because when we asked in ahmedabad for room shift, as it is not at all good, as usual answer was "BOOKING FULL". before itself i asked the person that not to cancel the rooms alloted if there is no refund. But the reply was "AGAINST THE RULES". And coming to vehicle, Innova was alloted to us and then because of cancellation "xcent" was given. And "DE VOYAGER HOSPITALITY" claimed that there is a difference in amount (2000 less), then where is the amount- a big "QUESTION MARK". So guys, if you (DE VOYAGER HOSPITALITY) are going through this mail, just rethink from our perspective. Thanks..,

    Ahmedabad is considered one of the safest city in India, especially for solo travellers. The Gujaratis are very warm and welcoming people. However, it is best to take care of yourself like in any other place during travel and keep your luggage safe at all times.

    While Gujaratis are known for their vegetarianism, non-veg food is not all that hard to find in major cities in Gujarat. There are plenty of restaurants serving all kinds of cuisine in Gujarat.

    Navaratri, Rann Utsav, and Uttarayan (kite festival) are famous festivals in Gujarat. The Bhavnath Fair in Junagadh, Vautha Fair in Vautha, Shamlaji Mela near Himmatnagar, and Dang Darbar in Ahwa are popular fairs to visit in Gujarat.

    Gujarat is renowned for being a dry state, meaning alcohol is banned in the state. It is not advised for travellers to purchase liquor illegally in Gujarat. However, there are some designated high-end hotels that sell alcohol to permit holders. A permit can be acquired from the officials by showing a valid identity proof. Non-Indians can also purchase a 30-day permit to buy alcohol in Gujarat.
