This hill station is situated in Dang district at the southeast corner of the state. It has an altitude of 1000m. This place has the Sarpagana river flowing nearby which has a sacred snake image on its banks. Saputara -literally, the Abode of Serpents-is Gujarat’s best-known hill resort, situated atop the second highest plateau in the Sahyadri range and in the midst of thick forests. Saputara is picture postcard perfect with lakes, streams, woodlands and hills. At the heart of Saputara is a lake, with boating facilities. A climbing road takes you up to the Chimney ropeway, from where you can enjoy a panoramic view of the hills. The ‘Pushpak Ropeway’ is nearly one km long and is usually busy in the evenings. Children and young couples eagerly await their turn on the countries longest ropeway. The Dangs, in which Saputara lies, rises from 50 to 1083 m above sea level offering a vista of paradise. The climate here is cool and bracing throughout the year. The monsoon being pleasant with small flittering waterfalls all around and the hill resort looking beautifully green. It is 160 Kms from Surat. Best time to visit is between April to early July. Pretty pieces of pottery, jewellery, vases, paintings, pen stands, key chains, all made from bamboo chips and other locally found material can be purchased from here. Children can learn to make simple items in the workshop organised by the craftsmen.

The Dangs district has more than 300 villages, most of them with a population of less than 100, and 90% of the population is tribal. The Museum, established to introduce visitors to the culture and ecology of the district, showcases the attire and lifestyle of different communities like the Bhils, Kunbis, Gamits, and Warlis, as well as the Kothewali potters. Other exhibits introduce visitors to the weapons, utensils and customs of the local communities.
Vansda National Park
Originally, a private forest of maharaja of Vansada, the park now covers on area of 24 sq kms. Despite its small size the park harbours tiger, leopard, pangolin, rusty-spotted cat, python, giant squirrel, fourhorned antelope etc. Prior permission from the Chief Wildlife Warden, of Gandhinagar or DFO, Ahwa is required before visiting the park
Surat’s vast and active textile market testifies its importance in the textile trade even today.
The Saputara Lake surrounded by greenery makes it pleasurable to sail in the lake in a row or paddle boat
It is a point which offers the best view of Saputara and adjoining Malegoan could be reached after a walk of 1.5 km in the direction of Waghai. The naming restricts the tourist traffic to this best place as tourists believe that the point should only be visited at sun rise, however, one may visit it at any time of the day to catch a panoramic view. The Tata Consultancy Services has suggested renaming this point as Valley View Point to enhance tourist traffic.

It is named after Gopi, the patron saint of Surat. It has many large mansions richly ornamented with woodcarvings. Its chief features are Agama Mandir and many other Jain temples and Jain monasteries.
Gandharvapura Artists’ Village
Visitors can pick up pretty pieces of pottery, jewellery, vases, paintings, pen stands, key chains all made from bamboo chips and other locally found material. Children can learn to make simple items in the workshop organized by the craftsmen.
Ambapada is a typical Dangi village located about 1 km off the Saputara-Waghai road near the Gira Falls. The route to it is somewhat tricky but very scenic as it is lined with lush and tall bamboo. Tourists can take a walk in and around the village and see some tribal people engaged in making toys and lamps out of bamboo.
