The Geography and Seasons

The Rann of Kutch is located in the Thar Desert in the Kutch region of Gujarat. It is essentially huge areas of flat salt landscapes that stretch over 10,000 square miles and are found between the Gulf of Kutch and the Indus River which flows into the neighbouring country. The Rann of Kutch is home to different types of eco-systems, vegetation and wildlife owing to its strategic location of being situated in a desert on one side and having the sea on the other side. Being a desert, the climate here tends to be harsh with summers being very hot and dry. The preferred season to travel here is winter when the temperatures drop drastically and the Rann becomes a beautiful landscape to be in! Also, the reason why the Rann Utsav is organized during the months from November to March when the climate is cool and pleasant. This is the time when most of our Rann of Kutch tour packages are organized and travellers get a chance to experience the beauty and grandeur of this famous landscape.
