Saputara Vlog | HILL STATION IN GUJRAT| WEEKEND GETAWAY FROM SURAT AND VADODRA|MAHABLESHWAR LOOKLIKE

by - January 16, 2020






After setting the skies ablaze with the festival of Uttarayan, we are back to normality, setting the tune for our mundane routine, with some changes, just like bruised palms and bloated stomach.

Today, when I went for a run, I saw kites of various colors and patterns, flying in sky, make the sky more enchanting.

Today we would be talking about Saputara, the place that I last visited. It is a WEEKEND GETAWAY FROM SURAT AND VADODRA Saputara is situated at an altitude of 1000 meters in the forests of Sahyadri ranges on the outskirts of Maharashtra. It is a rocky region and the maximum temperature remains near 30 even in summer. According to me, this place reminds me a lot of Mahableshwar

So, in this blog, I have covered part 1 of the trip, as there were many places to show and stuffing all of that in one video would do no good & would do no justice to my content.

I would say that Saputara is a doppelganger of Mahableshwar, the same feel of the air, the same kind of tourist spots, Marathi speaking crowd. Saputara is on the borders of Gujrat and Maharashtra.

Few kilometers from Saputara is Nashik, which is another big city with a lot of heritage and places to travel.

Saputara is the only hill station in Gujrat, it is situated in the Dang District.

Saputara is situated 400 kms away from Ahmedabad, it takes around 8 -9 hours to commute by your personal conveyance. A huge should out to the Gujrat Government! for making such an excellent highway. The Ahmedabad- Vadodra Highway, which is a boon, the roads are amazingly smooth because of which you tend you reach faster. In case you want to snack, do that before this highway starts, once you get on the highway, there is no stopping.

On our way, we spotted Gira waterfalls, which was on our wish list to cover. Hence, stopped by and enjoyed the enraptured waterfalls. Locals have cited that during monsoon it becomes even more beautiful. There were boulders all around surrounded by 3 big waterfalls and a small lake.

This place had a lot of small shops around which sold artifacts from Dang culture. Once you come up after viewing the waterfall, there is a small food joint, which serves authentic Dang food. They served us Finger Millet Roti, lentil and a chutney which was made of chili flakes and rock salt.

We loved the food so much, that while on our way back, we visited them again!

After the scrumptious and heavy meal, we reached the resort at 5 pm. The resort we stayed was called as White Leaf, this property was very clean, well maintained and spacious.
It started getting dark, as I visited during winters. So, we head straight to the sunset point, however, it had become pitch dark when we reached and sun had already set.

Hence, decided on coming back the next day. One day one we explored the night market and food stalls opposite the Saputara lake

Ragi and bamboo is staple of Saputara. So don’t miss out on finger millet fritters, toast and bamboo pickle.

Vegetarian food is what is mainly found on the street stalls. There is a restaurant sugar n spice which serves both veg and non veg, there is a food truck as well outside this restaurant which serves fish and other non veg delicacies.

In my next blog, I will share with you the rest of my experience, so stay tuned for it.
