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.
Wilson Hill Station and Shankar Waterfall stand in an impenetrable forest area near Dharampur in the Valsad district of Gujarat.
Shankar Fall is close to the famous Wilson Hills, a hill station situated in the Pangarbari Wildlife Sanctuary. I had a chance to plan an excursion to Wilson Hills lately. You are missing a good day in your life if you haven’t been at places like Shankar Waterfall and Wilson Hills.
Let me plan a breath to share experience to Wilson Hill Station.
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! 😛
It’s May and Summer is on the top! Yeah, and vacations too! In the old times, the Britisher officers in India weren’t able to face the heat of our ablaze sun, so they were used to take a leave of two months, April, May and go out for a vacation on one of the hill stations of India. The reason why many of India’s hill stations are influenced by the British colonial.
Well, all talk and folklores aside, let’s make the list!
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.
