The Rann of Kutch was on my travel bucket list for a long time. The idea of witnessing the endless expanse of white plateau stretching into the horizon seemed fascinating. The outlandish landscape of Kutch struck a chord with my heart. Finally, my wish was fulfilled in February this year. I chose to visit Kutch during the Rann Utsav, as the entire Kutch comes alive with festivities during that time. The Rann Utsav is celebrated each year during the winter months, against the magical setting of the Rann of Kutch. Here’s how I spent some amazing days at the celebrated Rann Utsav.
Exploring the Beautiful Landscape of Rann
The Rann of Kutch is a vast salt desert. The presence of salt on the ground gives the Rann its distinct white colour. The white ground stretches around in all the directions to meet the bright blue sky. Camel Rann Utsav Tours, are the best way to explore the alien landscape. Marveling at the endless expanse of white sand invoked my inner philosopher, as I felt like a tiny spec in this enormous expanse of land. When the sun sets, the white earth glows in hues of red and yellow. The hour of sunset is the golden hour of photography at the Rann.
