    Timeline of the event.

    Note: The Rann Utsav is scheduled from 01-Nov-2023 to 26-Feb-2024. Once upon a time long long ago the light emitted from Moon was the only source of light in this region. Experiencing the white desert at night used to be special. But, currently, there are hundreds of Giant floodlights installed in the entire area which makes the moonlight barely noticeable. These lights are similar to cricket stadium lights during night matches. Now you can plan for any date without worrying about the Moon.

    International Kite Festival Rann of Kutch Tour 2024 from Mumbai

    In the heart of the Rann of Kutch, the celebration of "Uttarayan" unfolds like a vibrant riot of colors and traditions. As kites fill the sky, the ground beneath comes alive with the rhythmic beats of traditional music, echoing Gujarat's cultural richness.

    Beyond the melodies, the festival ground transforms into a lively stage full of dancers in colorful costumes, adding a visual charm to the vibrant atmosphere. As the sun sets, the desert becomes a breathtaking canvas for tourists warming up around crackling bonfires.

    Uttarayan holds cultural and spiritual significance, symbolizing the end of winter and the arrival of spring—a season of renewal and growth. The festival is a time when families and friends gather on rooftops for friendly kite-flying competitions, accompanied by delicious traditional snacks.

The highlight is the celebration of Uttarayan during January, where the International Kite Festival attracts enthusiasts from around the world.

    In essence, Uttarayan at Rann Utsav is more than a celebration of kites; it's a celebration of life, culture, and the spirit of togetherness.
