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.

"Perfect weekend gateway hill station" new review

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 2 days ago
Saputara is a small hill station and is not very crowded. It has nice resort and other accommodation facilities which make it an ideal place for weekend retreat. Well connected via Surat, Baroda it can be accessed via Road. Surrounded by villages and forest mountains, it is a journey into exploring Gujarat like never before.

This hill station is on a plateau in the Dang forest area of Western Ghats (Sahyadri) range at an altitude of about 1, 000 metres. Saputara means the 'Abode of Serpents' and a snake image on the banks of the river Sarpagana is worshipped by the Adivasis on Holi.

"A nice place with good activities" new review

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 1 week ago
It is good place to relax. Boating area and lake was clean. But life jackets were not given unless demanded for. Rope way was good. Pricing was not too expensive. People interested in Paragliding will have fun participating in these activities. Very near to Nasik. People can plan for Vineyard and Saputara trip combined to have a relaxed outing. Strawberries and Grapes lovers should go there for good and tasty varieties.
