Saputara Monsoon Festival is a month long event, organized and promoted by tourism department. The monsoon festival begins in August month every year.
The festival features plentiful events, activities and cultural programs in 30 days. Local Dangi food items and spectacular cultural shows portraying lifestyle of Adivasis are most exiciting events of the festival. From 10 year old kids to 90 year old grandma, the festival guarantees good time for everyone.
Exact dates for 2016 edition of Saputara Monsoon Festival are yet to be announced, I expect it to start from either 1st or 8th August. Tourism department also holds special tour packages during monsoon festival.
If you live in Gujarat and if you love traveling, you must have come across Saputara Hill Station. It’s THE most famous hill station in Gujarat. If you’re in Saputara, this post will help you find places to visit during your sightseeing tour.
I’ve been to Saputara multiple of times. It’s 2 hour drive from my hometown. Without doubt, Saputara is really a good vacation or weekend trip destination from Surat/Mumbai/Ahmedabad.
I never get bored of Saputara.
And I also never get bored of making lists! 😛
Purna Wildlife Sanctuary is dense forest in North Dang forest range. Also known as PWS, Purna Wildlife Sanctuary is spread between Vyara, Tapi and Ahwa, Dang district. Purna Sanctuary is second protected area in South Gujarat after Vansda National Park.
Purna Wildlife Sanctuary is also popular among bird watchers. To promote Purna sanctuary as a bird watching site, recently Dang Bird Festival was organized at Mahal Campsite, in Purna Wildlife Sanctuary.
Dang district of Gujarat is full of green forests and amid the forests, Dang has number of tourism places. Most of the tourism spots are, however, unknown to majority of tourists.
I started exploration of Dang in August 2014. The first spot I chose was Don Hill Station. In fact, I started this blog from writing article on Don. The post has received ultra response and then it all started.
By December 2015, I’ve been to almost every place in Dang forests. And I still wouldn’t miss any opportunity. 🙂
This article is a collection of all the places that I’ve visited in Dangs till now.
Dangs bird festival has been organized by Purna WLS in collaboration with Ahwa (North) Division Forest Department. Scheduled to fly off during 5th February to 7th February, 2016, this bird festival in Dang will promote Purna Wildlife Sanctuary as bird sanctuary.
I was reading Sandesh newspaper today and came to know about this Dang bird festival.
