Footfall Expected to Increase after a Covid Lull in the Past Two Years

There was a decline in the number of tourists visiting the region to experience the Rann Utsav during the pandemic. But the footfall will likely increase with travel going back to normalcy. There have already been more than 8000 bookings for the tent city and the number is expected to grow with time. Accommodation in the tent city now has five categories, Rajwadi tents, super-premium tents, premium tents, deluxe tents, and non-AC tents. Tourists can choose any based on their preference and budget. 

If you are planning to be part of the Rann Utsav, you can book a flight to Ahmedabad and reach Dhordo. It is a small village located nearly 407 kms away from Ahmedabad and is well-connected via both rail and road.
