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! 😛
Ropeway, aka Cable car is one the finest way to get bird’s-eye view of a place. Gujarat has 3 places where ropeway system is setup and currently in use.
Saputara Hill Station
Gabbar Hill (Ambaji)
I’ve been to all the places and experienced ropeway rides at each one of them.
One of my recent days hobby is to create list of places falling into unique characteristic. 🙂
Gira Waterfall Waghai – you will always hear this name if you hear conversation regarding waterfalls in Dang, Gujarat area. Gira Dhodh, located in Wanarchod village near Waghai is one of the best places to visit in Gujarat during monsoon season.
Girafalls are often mis understood with Girmal falls. Both are in Dang but located far away from each other.
‘Gira’ falls are near Waghai, on Waghai Saputara state highway.
‘Girmal’ waterfall is in Girmal village, near Ahwa.
An excellent place for relaxing from busy city life.
