KHUSHBOO GUJARAT KI

Prologue:

In this journey, We ( Me with my younger sister ) covered places like Beautiful Sasan Gir Forest, Somnath temple, passed Porbandar & finally reached Dwarka. Return leg was a different route moving towards Rajkot and finally meeting NH8 at a place called Anand followed by the beautiful 3 lane highway all the way upto Thane.

This log would be less writing and more of a photo feature so please feel free to ask any questions. We covered in total 2100 kms in 5 days and believe me in the entire trip, roads were just too good to ride. Even the State Highway are maintained exceptionally well, the roads even in the most interiors never failed to amaze us. Road Infrastructure is brilliant and has been made keeping in mind it should be good for years to come.

If you wish to ride as per the route provided by Google then without GPS to reach Gir is like suicide. Thankfully, I have GPS in my phone which helped us all the way till we reached Gir. People were very friendly and unfortunately majority of them do not speak Hindi so be prepared to do lot of hand actions and gestures to convey your message

All the places visited were good to visit at least once and Gir is a place where I would surely go again and may be stay 2 full days.

Reached Gir through the interiors of Gujarat and finally took the coastal route to reach Dwarka

Finally the last stretch of 15 kms to reach Sasan Gir goes through deep forest where we were advised not to stop in between and go straight till you reach the other side of the gate.

Deer - You will be able to spot deer's in plenty in the entire Gir Forest. This one is male as it has horns.

Clicked in Devaliya which is 16 kms Jungle where animals like lion's and deer's are kept in captivity. Very good for tourists who will not return with disappointment as chances of spotting Lion in open jeep jungle safari is less
