Mahal Eco Tourism campsite is one of the four eco-tourism centers in the Dangs, Gujarat. Located on the banks of Purna river, Mahal campsite offers excellent trekking and walking options. Surrounded by rich Purna Wildlife Sanctuary forests (touted as thickest bamboo forest in Gujarat), and no modern technological facilities (no mobile networks), this is the place if you want to rest from noisy-hasty city life. Mahal eco tourism center, Ahwa is part of North Dang forest division of Gujarat. North Dang forest division also handles Girli lodges, near Girmal falls. The campsite falls in the boundary of Mahal village, which is on Ahwa - Songadh road, about 40 minutes drive from Ahwa. Mahal campsite was one of last 3 places in Dang I hadn't visited. We finally planned a trip there on 14th November, 2015 (which was my 21st birthday!).
