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.

"Overall, a good place to be if you have nothing else to do" new review

  • 4/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
The first thing I'll say about Saputara is, Gujarat Tourism has simply hyped this destination. Long distance travellers have much better options to go for rather coming to Saputara. However it can surely be appreciated by the residents of Maharashtra and Gujarat if a offbeat relaxing trip is what you are looking for.

The valley is beautiful here! Monsoons is the favorite time to be here. However you may want to be really good at driving or actually hire a professional for the roads are little risky here in the wet season. I couldn't find anything at all to look around on the second day. Also none of the hotels here is exceptionally good and worth spending chunks. Overall, a good place to be if you have nothing else to do or be at.

"Calm Serene and clean hill station"

  • 5/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
I have been there to celebrate Christmas holidays and new year. This place is very nice. Those who want some peace of mind I recommend this place. There are very few but beautiful places or points to visit, it's good to go there by your vehicle. Ropeway, Sunset and boating, rose garden are major attractions along with some fun activities like horse riding, camel ride, dirt bikes and cars etc. Food is also good. there are some more places nearby like saptashrungi Devi temple at Vani, hilly roads to botanical garden and vansda national park.

"Overall, a good place"

  • 4.5/7

Saputara is a good place and if you want to do some adventure its good option in Gujarat. But if you want to go outside of Gujarat than you want to go "Pachmarhi" its too good than Saputara. Not comparison both the Places but Pachmarhi has many other points and its hotel, food quality and other services are good than Saputara.

"Must travel in monsoon"

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted Sep 24, 2014
Saputara is nice place to visit in Gujarat. Should travel in Monsoon. There are good resorts or hotels available to stay in at fair rates. Surroundings are also good to visit like lake, Ahwa etc... Always go for a sight seeing tour after negotiation with local tour operators
