I am already contacted with related person in Dholavira Toran Guest House. It is now under Gram Panchayat. It can be booked without much problem I think. I do the Dholavira last as 25th Dec is Full Moon day and I want to stay at White Rann Area or Hodka .
Any idea about the how the standard different between Mehfil e Rann and Sham e Sharhad. I get the rate for both the resort. I can now know the room standard of Mehfil e Rann from your post. But dont know the actual standard.

Wonderful log there Sachin! I am thinking of spending my quota of leaves in GJ this year. But kinda apprehensive of visiting during the Rann Utsav time. That leaves me with November as the only option.

Is Dholvira accessible from Kalo Dunger as the crow flies, if there's no water in the lake? (Hard luck this year I suppose with better than avg monsoons) :rolleyes:

Thanks Dry ice. I have not heard of anyone going from Kalo dunger to dholavira and believe it's not possible especially in November and could be restricted.

In one thread I don't remember said that one road is planned but not actually present, but one can cross the Rann in summer to reach Dholavira to Khabda.:confused:
