One day, we were out in Dangs. We were wandering lavishly on the roads with no place in mind.
My brother, Kunj then suggested that we go to a village, Koshmal. It was a remote village in Dangs. And supposedly, it was known to have the highest waterfall of Gujarat.
Kadam Dungar (also known as Kalamdungar & Kadamdungar) is a hill located ~20km from Waghai town on Ahwa – Waghai road. The hill is important religious place for the native tribals, known as Adivasis.
The hill has an altitude of more than 800 meters, marking it as one of the highest points of Dang region. Locals say that when the weather is clear and there’s high visibility (which is rare), one can see both Ahwa and Waghai towns from the hilltop.
My second list! During the last summer vacation, I prepared a list of hill stations in Gujarat. The article has since garnered a warm response from visitors and from Google too, it holds the top spot for the term ‘hill stations of Gujarat’. Taking cue from it, here’s my list of waterfalls in South Gujarat.
Because waterfalls are gorgeous, powerful and mesmerizing, aren’t they? 🙂
Why South Gujarat?
As I have sparse knowledge about other areas of Gujarat. South Gujarat is home ground for me.
Polo Monument and Vijaynagar forests is a scenic weekend destination from Ahmedabad. The lush green forests, ancient structures and quiet ambience all adds up for a relaxing trip.
Polo Forest, Abhapur was part of our 2 day trip to Idar.
Throughout 6th semester of B. Tech, Computer Engineering, DDIT, Nadiad, I never missed a chance to go on trip. Most of the trips were, however, of 1 day. Depart in morning and return by night.
After end of 3rd internal exam, I had window of 2 days. Why not Polo Forest & Idar then? And there we were…
The Don hill station is a scenic landscape located near Saputara and is perched on the border of Gujarat of Maharashtra and around 30km from Ahwa, the headquarter of the Dangs. I experienced its natural beauty few days back. (16th August, 2014).
Don can be definitely the next hill station of Gujarat after Saputara if Gujarat Tourism Department put some efforts to develop it.
It’s still hidden from most of the tourists’ focus, mouth publicity is the only thing helping it to attract avid travelers.
