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.
When I was preparing list of waterfalls in Gujarat, I came to know about Jodiya waterfalls, Bilpudi, Dharampur. At that time, Bilpudi waterfalls were unknown to most people. Little did I know they would turn out as major attraction in monsoon 2016.
Bilpudi waterfalls are origin of Swargvahini River, which passes through Dharampur town.
Updating this article with good photos and more details to help out travelers.
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.
I bet you’ve never heard of the place Bildha! Have you?
My hometown is in South Gujarat. In South Gujarat, Dangs and Dharampur area has many places for nature fans. Some of them are popular and frequented by many travellers. For instance, Saputara, Wilson Hills or Don Hill Station.
Some of them are untouched. Bildha is one such place.
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.
