The festival celebrates the unique culture of Gujarat with music and dance performances, storytelling sessions, walks through the desert, fabulous displays of handicrafts and of course some authentic, mouth-watering food native to the Rann of Kutch. This year, the festival will be celebrated between 1 November 2018 and 20 February 2019, during the chilly winter months when the desert is most attractive.
The scenic beauty of Sambhar makes it a picturesque location. Warning in advance, if you are planning to visit sambhar in your sedan, better be prepared to visit a mechanic too. The roads are not in good condition but this is what you expect from an off beat tourist destination.
