GUJARAT HILL STATION | PLACES TO VISIT
Vansda National Park:
Originally, a private forest of maharaja of Vansada, the park now covers on area of 24 sq kms.
Despite its small size the park harbours tiger, leopard, pangolin, rusty-spotted cat, python, giant squirrel,
fourhorned antelope etc. Prior permission from the Chief Wildlife Warden, of Gandhinagar or DFO, Ahwa is required before visiting the park.
Covering an area of 160 sq kms, Purna Sanctuary is a part of a dense moist deciduous forest in the Western Ghat of Gujarat.
Situated at Mahal, 60 kms, north of Dangs, the sanctuary is crossed by Purna and Gira rivers.
There are bamboo lined pathways for trekkers. Prior permission is necessary for visiting.
The Saputara Lake surrounded by greenery makes it pleasurable to sail in the lake in a row or paddle boat.
It is a point which offers the best view of Saputara and adjoining Malegoan could be reached after a walk of 1.5 km in the direction of Waghai.
The naming restricts the tourist traffic to this best place as tourists believe that the point should only be visited at sun rise, however,
one may visit it at any time of the day to catch a panoramic view. The Tata Consultancy Services has suggested renaming this point as Valley View Point to enhance tourist traffic.
A ten minutes ride across the valley to the sunset point organised by Hotel Vaity.
