Destination: Rann Of Kutch

Origin: Mumbai

Closest City: Bhuj

Alternate: Ahmedabad

  • If you are taking the trains, its best to book for Bhuj (an overnight journey)
  • Once at Bhuj, you can hire an auto-rickshaw or cab to take you to Rann. Its about two hours from the Bhuj station
  • Alternatively, you can travel to Ahmedabad (a lot more options to get here) by trains or busses – the journey is about 7 hours long
  • If your pocket/luck is great, you can fly there too
  • From Ahmedabad, Bhuj is another 7 or so hours away and 2 hours further is Rann

 

Stay: Since this trip was only for the music festival, we stayed at the venue itself.

Tents!

Getting around: Rann is a desert and if you want to go around, the local auto guys will happily pass on their numbers to you. Though, I noticed that many groups chose to just hire a cab fulltime from bhuj for their entire trip.

Food: Again, since we were only at the festival, we didn’t really explore the local culinary. However, we had a couple of hours to spare in bhuj, on our way back to Mumbai, and we asked a couple of locals who recommended Toral at Hotel Prince. They have a gorgeous traditional Gujarati thaali. It was absolutely delicious and soul satisfying. Very recommended.
