Saputara is a popular hill station municipality and city located in the Dang District in the southern part of Gujarat.

This well-planned hill station lies around 170 km from Surat, 80 km from Nashik and 5 km from the border of Maharashtra.

The meaning of Saputara is ‘Abode of Serpents’ and because of this there are several images of snakes present on shores of the River Sarpagana that flows through the town. The tribal folks here worship these images of snakes on special occasions like Holi.

Other than sailing, the Sunset Point in the Lake offers a clear view of the Saputara region. Just 52 km from Saputara is the Gira waterfalls, which is a popular tourist destination.         

Some of the popular places here include Nageshwar Mahadev Temple dedicated to Lord Shiva. The museum of Saputara is ideal for gathering knowledge on the Dang tribe. One of the popular events celebrated here is the Dangs Darbar, which is a tribal festival celebrated before Holi.   

Once a private forest of the Maharaja of Vansda, the Vansda National Park covers an area of 24 square km. The national park consists of animals like tigers, leopards, python, four horned antelope, pangolin, rusty spotted cats and even giant squirrels.

Located in the regions of Mahal, 60 km to the north of Dangs, is the Purna Sanctuary. It covers a total land area of 160 square km and consists of wide varieties of wild animals. This wildlife sanctuary belongs to the region of dense forest covers, located in the regions of the Western Ghats.

If you are in search of tranquility you must visit Saputara during rainy season. Awesome experience of driving in hills, lush green forest around you will give you pleasure if you are nature lover.

Not much places to visit but climate will force to fall in love with nature and that is for sure. Some adventures sports are there, boating, rope way, small falls, and of course phenomenal experience to walk in cloud.

Also experience the adventure activities like zip line, trekking & paragliding. Enjoy the paragliding from the table top. Truly thrilling. Best time to visit is in Spring season.

"A destination with good attractive spots"

  • 6/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
It was a good experience at Saputara. It is hill station and there were so many attractive places to visit. We require 3 days to cover the entire Saputara. There is no bar and selling of hard drinks. So less number of nuisance here. To enjoy with the family, this is one of the finest place.

Enjoy! Best of Luck

"Summer vacation trip"

  • 5/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
This place is awesome with height and natural trees and cold atmosphere. Also sun set point is located at the top hill with large area of ground. Also people can drink on hill top. The best thing at saputara is that though it comes under Gujarat which is dry state but you can drink over that. Also the up side of hill top make you mad about nature.

"Into the Saputara Woods"

  • 5/7
  • Posted Mar 31, 2015
If you are in and around Ahmedabad, Rajkot or Surat, Saputara can be a nice place for a group to hangout. I visited the place in April which was not a wise decision because the heat was too much to spend a night in forest. Saputara can be treated as a place to hangout in the rainy season when the seasonal springs and waterfalls come alive. If you go in a season other than it than there are high chances you wont even like the place. Except for a sunset point there is nothing so special in Saputara.

But yes you'll be thinking why I gave a 4 star rating. It is because of a National Park named 'Vandana'. It is located at a distance of about 50 kms from Saputara and if you are a crazy group you are bound to enjoy the night fire inside the park. You have to make your bookings for the tent houses a week prior to your visit. The best thing about the park is you are all alone inside it with not even a care taker for you. It gives you a feel of being in the jungle all alone. You yourself have to arrange for your food, for the camp-fire and for your safety :P.

One more speciality that the park possesses is - 'It is haunted'. Now for the people interested in paranormal activities this can be quite thrilling. We ourselves experienced such things which stopped us from sleeping all night. We had a prior interest in paranormal things so we choose this place and we got what we wanted. A ghostly experience. 'Be calm be brave be strong' - enjoy the camp-fire with more people than you expect. Have fun. ;)
