Good weather, serene atmosphere

This was our first visit to Saputara. The roads were beautiful and Saputara is also very neat and clean (except for the food vendors "Chowpatty" area next to the lake). A very beautiful and relaxing hill-station. It's very small but offers a few things to do. The most distinct is the 'rope-way' and adventure sports. Good weather, serene atmosphere and very relaxing. The food is good at most places, however, almost everywhere you will get only Veg food (there are a couple of non-veg restaurants, but nothing much to write about. Didn't visit them). The safety aspects are also taken care of - I noticed police patrolling and vigilance.

Saputara Overview

Saputara is a popular hill station municipality and city located in the Dang District in the southern part of Gujarat. It is located in a plateau in the Dang forest area of the Sahyadri range, at an altitude of 1,000 m. 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.

Saputara is popular for the several gardens present here like Lake Garden, Step Garden and Rose Garden. One of the most popular gardens in Saputara is the Step Garden. The unique features of the Step Garden are the design and layout of the steps. Plants and flowerpots with wooden work around it support the steps. There are facilities for visitors to stay here in the numerous Forest Huts.

One of the popular attractions here is the Saputara Lake that abode several boat clubs, offering facilities for boating. 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.
