    Day 3 : Malshej-Otur-Bramhanada-Kotul-Akola-Sinner-Nashik-Saputara-Vansda-Unai

    Was looking forward to an awesome day up ahead. Proceeded till Otur for some Poori Bhaji to tank up a growling stomach. Turn left from Otur, it was like getting into the heart of rural India.

    Before otur

    People already up in the fields, sowing seeds and other farming related jobs. I couldnt resist myself from just stopping at a place where a group of kids were singing a song while their parents were working in the field. Proceed towards Bramhanada. Rains had eased in this part of the route. Hardly anyone frequented this route even though it was named a state highway. Just the kind of roads I love.



    MH gift for today BTW the shoe is black :P


    Fender art




    Post Akola , it becomes even better, with trees forming canopies by the side of the road. Mad rush begins from Sinnar towards Nashik. Stop at a roadside dhabha 40-50kms from Saputara for lunch. The road starts getting better in terms of slush, speeding busses spraying water on you. Reach Saputara and started searching for a decent place to stay.

    Hello Gujrat


    After searching around 12-15 hotels, came to know that, you are very unlikely to give a guy who is travelling alone, accommodation. Was a What the hell kind of situation, you can elope with an underage guy/gal, they are happy to give you cottages(even discounts on top of it), but for a person who is single(read alone), they dont. Got seriously annoyed with Amitabh Bachan, he did not give a hint while promoting Gujarat Tourism. This was how my first step into Gujarat in twenty seven years went through. So proceed towards Vansda hoping to find a roof above my head for the night. Meantime I just checked the elevation, for a hill station it measured 1010 mtrs ASL, I almost start fainting, because my house itself is around 925m ASL. So that meant I should be collecting entry fees from people entering my area.

    Few pics from Saputara


    Caught in the act


    Wish i had a home there




    Roads, fantastic throughout.




    The only place recommended in the whole of Vansda(atleast from the options that I saw) is the forest cottages near Waghai(before Vansda, if you are coming from Saputara) checkpost. When enquired the forest official said it would cost Rs.500/- per day, but was unavailable for the day. Really loved the place. They also arrange camps by the riverside. For people who are light on budget, wanted to experience something different, then This is the place. People who fight for an AC room in a hill station, please stay away from it. The guy at the fuel station suggest me to stay at Unai, about 10kms from Vansda, where the chances of getting accommodation was higher. Thanksfully found a beautiful temple, after which the small town was famous. After a free meal at the temple , call it a day.

    Day 4 : Unai-Buhari-Bajipura-Madhi-Kevdi-Dediapada-Shoolpaneshwar Wildlife Sanctuary-Rajpipla-Bodeli-Halol-Kalol-Godhra-Lunawada-Modasa-Ratanpur-Udaipur.

    Temples bells were the the alarm for the morning. Freshen up for a small visit to the temple(more importantly for the prasad).







    Unai Mata


    A check with a truck driver about the route proceed towards Rajpipla and then entering Rajastan. How much I praise the quality of roads in Gujarat, it’s not sufficient. Fell in love with it. At a small shack somewhere post Madhi stop for some light breakfast. Early morning showers, with some Samosa and tea, ah made my day. Knew it was a long day ahead.

    Road towards Kevdi


    Saw a small lane on my right which looked beautiful, took me to Kevdi, a small town and then to Shoolpaneshwar Wildlife Sanctuary. Sadly no animal spotting took place, or rather didn’t waste time in searching for them. Connect back to Rajpipla. The fun began to deteriorate as the numbers on the signboards started decreasing towards Halol. The sun was furiously shining on my head. Stop at a place called Hotel Delight, some distance before Godhra, for a very late lunch.





    From here the curvy roads started defining the word “straight line”. It looked like people who built this road, earlier specialized in building mortuaries. Some distance before Modasa Riding on these roads can put your granny’s lullabies to shame, for making you doze off. Want proof??? take this

    Roads which redefine the word: Staright


    Some distance before Modasa Crossed the Tropic of Cancer.


    At Ratanpur,Rajastan



    After nearly 14-15 hours of being on the road, finally reach Udaipur for the night. Checked in at the first hotel visible. What a day it was , nearly 575kms though the forests,villages and highways.

    Day 4 : Around Udaipur

    Today was a relaxed day, not much riding but only to restore the calories which I had lost in the last few days. Wanted to go around Udaipur, initially felt like the city was 1-1 clone of Mysore, people leading a relaxed life, no hurry for anything. Wanted to see Fatehsagar Lake, the famous Udaipur palace, Bharatiya Lok Kala Mueseum and the local market. First visit was to Bharatiya Lok kala Mueseum, the apathy of the Govt towards this place was quiet evident. Handicrafts and other memorabilia exchanges from places as far as Brazil and Mexico are displayed. Loved the puppet show that had little audience.

















    After a while shifted the location to Fatehsagar Lake. Stopped at a shack opposite to the lake where I had lassi the previous night. Had some fluids to keep myself hydrated. Right next to the shack was Maharana Pratap Memorial. Later head towards Sukhadia Circle( which was like the thindi Beedhi in Bangalore) , but more organized place to have some awesome street food. A must try for anybody travelling to Udaipur and loves food.

    Maharana Pratap Memorial




    U saying something buddy






    Food Joints Around Sukhadia Circle


    After the tummy full enter the Palace premises. Have no words to describe the place and how it was maintained. After about two hours of going through an era of royalty, it was time for the daily security drill of the palace guards.



    Anybody game for this Silver helmet????








    Pichola Lake Palace




    No bad intentions while taking the pic
