One day, we were out in Dangs. We were wandering lavishly on the roads with no place in mind.
My brother, Kunj then suggested that we go to a village, Koshmal. It was a remote village in Dangs. And supposedly, it was known to have the highest waterfall of Gujarat.
My second list! During the last summer vacation, I prepared a list of hill stations in Gujarat. The article has since garnered a warm response from visitors and from Google too, it holds the top spot for the term ‘hill stations of Gujarat’. Taking cue from it, here’s my list of waterfalls in South Gujarat.
Because waterfalls are gorgeous, powerful and mesmerizing, aren’t they? 🙂
Why South Gujarat?
As I have sparse knowledge about other areas of Gujarat. South Gujarat is home ground for me.
Since past few months, I have been hiding away from this blog. My last post was on October 23, 2016. 6 months back!
I went underground mostly for skills & productivity enhancement.
On last birthday…
Polo Monument and Vijaynagar forests is a scenic weekend destination from Ahmedabad. The lush green forests, ancient structures and quiet ambience all adds up for a relaxing trip.
Polo Forest, Abhapur was part of our 2 day trip to Idar.
Throughout 6th semester of B. Tech, Computer Engineering, DDIT, Nadiad, I never missed a chance to go on trip. Most of the trips were, however, of 1 day. Depart in morning and return by night.
After end of 3rd internal exam, I had window of 2 days. Why not Polo Forest & Idar then? And there we were…
…So I was at Valsad Railway Station at one afternoon, waiting for train to Hyderabad, with an hour to spare.
I took a walk around the station and whenever I found something interesting, I kept tapping shutter button of phone (OnePlus X). I love observing people and scenes!
Following are the captures that ended up in gallery before I hopped into train.
Photo walk of newly opened Aamra Van in Nana Pondha town of Dharampur, Valsad. Aamravan is developed by Forest Department of Valsad, Gujarat.
The Don hill station is a scenic landscape located near Saputara and is perched on the border of Gujarat of Maharashtra and around 30km from Ahwa, the headquarter of the Dangs. I experienced its natural beauty few days back. (16th August, 2014).
Don can be definitely the next hill station of Gujarat after Saputara if Gujarat Tourism Department put some efforts to develop it.
It’s still hidden from most of the tourists’ focus, mouth publicity is the only thing helping it to attract avid travelers.
Dandakvan Ashram Vansda is a temple campus and an excellent landscaped garden. Dandakvan is the idea of Yogiraj Maharshi Sadguru Sadafal Deo Ji Maharaj, who revived the knowledge of Brahmavidya after hundreds of years, and established Vihangam Yoga.
Since my hometown is Vansda, I frequently visit this place. I’d like to give 10/10 points to the organization for maintaining garden. Even after years, the place feels like it was just opened.
Mangi-Tungi is a prominent twin-pinnacled peak with plateau in between, located near Tahrabad about 125 km from Nasik, Maharashtra, India.
Mangi, 4,343 ft (1,324 m) high above sea level, is the western pinnacle and Tungi, 4,366 ft (1,331 m) high, the eastern.
