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

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.

"Saputara a wonder of Gujarat" new review

  • 5.0/7

Pleasant place & what a wonderful place to watch it looks that clouds were just above our heads.
Should be visited by everyone once but not in rainy season because the rain fall is uncontrollable in the rainy season.
Should visit at the Saputara lake.
All of the place is very wonderful.

"Cool and calm place to be in." new review

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 6 days ago
Saputara is hill station on border of Gujarat and Maharashtra. It is accessible from nashik or from billimora. Climate is cool and is an ideal place to relax and rejuvenate your mind. Has few places to roam like tribal museum table land where one can do lot of adventure activities, there is a small aquarium next to tribal museum. Make sure to take a guide for a day who will make you roam around the area. Also take package with food in hotels because you won't get food after 8. Ropeway ride was good and enjoyed it. Also do the boating around the lake. For adventure one can do paragliding here. In month of January annual paragliding festival is held which one will enjoy. Overall a nice place to chill out with family and friends for 2 to 3 days.

Visited Saputara for the first time with friends. All the attractions in Saputara are in and around this lake. Can be tauted as young brother of Mahabaleshwar, it has good set of options to choose from - pedel boating / motor boating. Good spots to sit in the evening and soak in the nature with cool breeze blowing.

"Good get away place"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Jul 26, 2016
Weekend get away too crowded on weekends. If you guys want to relax visit weekdays. Carry food for picnic and even you can cook there as well. Road side food is good. Maharashtra is just a km away so there are benefits of that as well. A lot of people will agree with me.
