Rann of Kutch
The white salt desert of wonder, home to the colourful festival that shines of beatific splendour
Welcome to the one of the largest salt deserts in the world – The Great Rann of Kutch! Located in the colourful and cultural state of Gujarat, the Rann of Kutch is a part of the vast Thar Desert. The wonderful irony here is the beautiful contrast of the white salt desert against the incredibly colourful Rann Utsav that takes place in the flat desert land every year. This amazing contrast is the main feature and the prime attraction of our Rann of Kutch tour packages. Rann is the Hindi word for desert and the salt land is a part of the Kutch region of Gujarat, which is how the name ‘Rann of Kutch’ was derived and gained popularity over the years. The prestigious and spirited ‘Rann Utsav’ is organised by the Government of Gujarat annually and lasts for a wonderful 3 months! The Rann Utsav gives travellers the unique opportunity of experiencing the white flat salt lands while getting a glimpse into the colourful culture, performing arts, local traditions, cuisines and heritage of Gujarat. This forms an important aspect of our Rann of Kutch holiday package which is one of the most refreshing and invigorating travel experiences of Veena World!
