Very well known as the cultural carnival of Kutch, the Rann Utsav or Rann Festival, it is the most awaited festival in India on the land of the White Desert of the Kutch, Gujarat.
It is appropriately said, by Mr Amitabh Bachchan, – “Kutch Nahi Dekha to Kuch Nahi Dekha ”, and “Kuch Din to Guzariye Gujarat mein!”.
The stunning saline marsh is the marvel of nature that remains submerged underwater during the monsoons. It slowly re-surfaces in October as the water slowly drains from the shallow wetland.
You will get the unique and mystical experience that leaves you wondering about its fantastic beauty.
The winter season in India – the months from November to February are the ideal time to enjoy this magnificent land.
The endless white salt marsh is highlighted and celebrated by Rann Utsav. This grand festival of Rann brings colours and vivid art to make your experience basket more vibrant. You can witness the heritage of the Kutch region.
