At the end of the festival of Burning Man, the community formed is dismantled. Whatever you built it with and used, leaves with you. The entire location is left without leaving a trace of your existence here. The desert is left in its pristine condition.

Though you won’t leave any trace, wastes, and things, you brought with you here, however, you will leave with a world you created. On your way back to home, you will have new hopes and different outlook towards life. You will completely be transformed from the previous you. As it is said – burning man journey at its end is a new beginning.

Keep In Mind:

You need to bring enough food and water with you. As environment will be scorching warm. You won’t need currency for anything else but coffee and ice. Normally cars are not allowed, if you have a mutant or built it for a purpose; you can bring it on the field.

You won’t get bored as musical, dancing, arts performance, mud wrestling and raves, is also held to entertain the participants.
