About Rann of Kutch in Kutch

The songs of the Desert

The desert comes alive every December to the sound of music, the beats of dance, the colours of nature and the aromas of spices. This is an apt description for the Rann Utsav, or the Rann of Kutch festival.

What began in 2006 as an effort to promote the Rann of Kutch as a tourism spot, the Rann Utsav has today turned into a much awaited event of the year. At the epicentre of the Rann Utsav is Dhordo, the entry point into the Rann of Kutch.

The colours of the desert

The beauty of the Rann, as one enters it, is inspiring. The area is full of migratory birds which come from as far as Siberia and Europe to nest in the Rann, right through October to February. This is a treat for ornithologists and tourists alike.

The culture of the desert

The government sets up a ‘Tent City’ in Dhordo, which is made up of luxury tents for the visitors to the utsav. This also becomes the central point for all the activity, the musical performances, the dance recitals, the food courts and many other activities.

Fabrics and garments adorned with local embroidery techniques such as Suf, Khareek, Batik, Ajakh make for great gifts or keepsakes. The local style silver ornaments, carved wooden trinkets and hand painted artefacts are distinct and unique just like Kutch itself.

The activities in the desert

Take a trip on the white sands on a camel, shop for local handicrafts from the villagers who throng the makeshift market with their wares, pickup outfits embroidered with native designs and motifs and taste the street food available. If this is not enough, then take ride across the sand dunes in a ATV, take in the view of the Rann up from the sky in a parasail, relax in a spa or commune with the almighty as the sun rises, there is something for everyone in the Rann Utsav.

The stories of the desert

But the best way to take in the Rann of Kutch is on a full moon night. The white sands seem to turn a little whiter (If that is possible), the air becomes cooler and nature seems to echo the gaiety of the night. In the midst of these settings, campfires are lit among the dunes and folk artists being the night alive with song dance and stories of time gone by. This is an experience difficult to put in words and only to be soaked in with the night.

The Rann Utsav is a time to learn more about a land which is often mistaken to be barren. But in reality, the desert has its own colours which come alive during the Rann of Kutch Festival.

      Its great that travel triangle has booked a nice trip package though we have confirmed our requirements with a very short duration. Cab drivers were polite and helpful. What ever time it may be, late night or early morning The travel agent (Diu Travels) contact person was easily reachable over phone. The hotel The Grand Dwarka booked near dwarkadhish temple was really owsome. We enjoyed the stay

      The entire trip was very well organised. The Street Romeo travels arranged a good trip for us. The one Hotel Gir Pride in Sasan Girl was not upto the mark. The staff was very rude. However, the owner atleast listened to the queries. The light and music show in Somnath. The amazing food across the trip.

      Overall happy with the arrangements done.Hotels were good in all places other than Dwaraka.Dwaraka hotel was average.Car and the drivers were very good. I think one area to improve upon is giving local info to the customers since we would no be aware of that.For example, Gir forest sanctuary visit was a real waste and strain trip and we could hardly find anything there.Locals there were telling that this is the normal situation there and it is good to visit Devalia sanctuary instead which is less time consuming, saves money and definite chances of seeing animals.Also we could have been told about the Kutch festival happening so that we could have included that in the itenary.Passing on this important local information was the missing part in the package. Travel people always accessible and ready to make changes if any. Vehicle and the driver. Hotels.

    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.
