The Kutch Rann Utsav starts on the full moon day of December and continues for a minimum of two months that leaves every tourist saying, Khushbhoo Gujarat Ki - just the way Amitabh Bachchan does it! The Gujarat Tourism introduction to Rann of Kutch through their ambassador Amitabh Bachchan is worth quoting here! It puts Rann in a capsule and enables everyone to experience the Colours of this beautiful land.
The Rann Utsav is organised with great zest by Gujarat Tourism. It is a festival especially designed for the tourists. People can taste local flavours of culture and cuisine, heritage and hospitality!
"This is the surreal Rann of Kutch, the door to India. When the night is clear and the moon is full, these white sands light up radiantly. All those nights, the earth becomes moon."
You get to stay here in tents and camps arranged by the Tourism department. These fully air conditioned tents will provide you relaxation and prove your vacation worth it.
Dream Come True...
The Silvery Sands outide your tent will seem out of the world. Perhaps a fragment of your dream promises to come true.
Colours of Kutch!
"This stark and austere beauty is colourfully contrasted by the people of kutch. By the vivid colours of their handicrafts and the sweet melodies of their folk music."
Introducing local culture to the world at large is the main intention behind the Rann Utsav. Hence, tourists get to witness cultural programmes organised by officials there.
There are many places that you might want to explore on your visit there! Bhuj, Dholavira and the Vijay Vilas Palace at Mandvi are a must visit!
"Close by is the serene and laid back beach of Mandvi where the land gently rolls down into the sea."
The quotations are from Gujarat Tourism's advertising campaign while the pictures are from their Rann Utsav Site.
Breathe in the zest for life here, the colourful festivals, the arts, the vibrance!
Breathe in a bit of Kutch!
Come, breathe in a bit of Gujarat.
