Back-packing tour to Rann Utsav & Dholavira – 30 Dec 2017 – 1 Jan 2018

Rann Utsav & Dholavira-

Rann Utsav-

Rann Utsav is an awesome festival of Kutch, Gujarat, India. It is a Carnival of Music, Dance and nature beauty of White Rann. You witness a sunset and a moonrise at one place. The beauty of a full moon across a clear star-studded sky is a rare experience. As you step into the White Desert at night, the cool breeze, the serene silence, the huge expanse transports you to an entirely different world. The salt-encrusted lands glows brighter as the moon rises higher. Around midnight when the moon has reached its peak, the entire surface shimmers like a blanket of diamond spread out endlessly in front of you.

Dholavira-

Dholavira is famous for the remains of the Harappan civilization that have been found here. One of the important archeological sites of the Indus Valley civilization. Dholavira is located at the Khadir Bet island in the Rann of Kutch, gives us a vivid idea about the civilization, culture and the architectural plans followed to build the city. The city was built up in a geometric shape with three divisions-the citadel, the middle town and the lower town.
