The best time to visit the Greater Rann of Kutch is during the Annual Rann Utsav Festival. The place is full of tourists and since its in the middle of nowhere, visiting the rann during a different season would not be advisable. 

Highlights:

  • Living in a Tent City.
  • Cultural Festivities (They had 2 different areas setup for festivities during the evening).
  • Adventure Sports like Para Motoring and ATVs
  • Sunrise, Sunset and Midnight visits to the Rann
  • Simple Village life
  • Local Handicrafts, Sarees and Apparels
  • Best time to go is Full Moon

Must Do: Vist the Rann at Night to experience it in Moonlight
