India: Gujarat & Rann Of Kutch

Visit operator website

Run by: Wild Frontiers

Reference number: GUJ

From: £2295.00

Village India - Gujarat is a dazzlingly diverse state that shakes up even the experienced Indophile and reveals treasures hidden from the tourist hordes. With a 1600km coastline and an easily traversable landscape, it is both highly advanced and medievally tribal. The highly visible Jain community are largely responsible for Gujarat’s industrious reputation, stunning white marble temples and exquisite, ever-so-slightly sweet vegetarian fare.

In the northwest, the seasonal marshlands of Kutch turn into hardened salt plains come summer and, in the Little Rann - habitat of the wild ass and flocks of flamingos - local artisans weave the finest textiles in India.

On this Village India tour, you see the very best of this undiscovered state, from the surreal Rann of Kutch and the ancient town of Bhuj to tribal Poshina, the UNESCO World Heritage site of Champaner and you climb Shatrunjaya, to a mountain-top marvel of Jain architecture.

And of course you spend time in the capital city of Ahmedabad, home to Mahatma Gandhi’s ashram and the world’s finest textile museum. For anyone with a love of ’off-the-beaten-track’ travel, textiles, shopping and rural India, this trip is a must.
