Taking the title of the world’s biggest salt deserts, the great Rann of Kutch in Gujarat hosts Kutch Mahotsav or Rann Utsav every winter. This festival is a celebration of the Kutch region’s culture and heritage, and a true wonderland for folk lovers. The festival runs for three to four months, from November to February, with the main highlight on the full moon nights, when the moon shines on the white expanse of the serene sand – it is a sight to behold. The festival features folk music and dance performances, live music concerts, camel rides, stargazing, food stalls, handicrafts bazaar, local art, authentic Kutchi cuisine, and adventure and sightseeing tours. For stay options, there are hundreds of tents, both AC and non-AC set up on the fringe of the bordering village of Dhordo.
