RANN UTSAV (GUJARAT) (Oct 2022 to Feb 2023)
The ongoing Rann Utsav is set against the surreal backdrop of the white salt desert in Kutch, Gujarat. It celebrates the marvels of nature at the white desert and the rich cultural and artistic heritage of Kutch. Celebrated annually during the winter months, it is a carnival of music, dance, culture, and shopping. The activities also include Sufi and folk dances, puppetry, ATV rides, camel cart excursions, para-motoring, meditation, yoga, and trips to surrounding destinations. A luxury tent village is constructed on the fringe of the salt desert to accommodate visitors and tourists from across the globe. Organised by Gujarat Tourism since 2013, the Rann Utsav is where the barren lands narrate beautiful stories, Rann Ki Kahaaniya. This ‘Desert Festival’ will culminate on 20th February 2023.
