The Highlights of Gujarat (15 days)

A tour of Gujarat provides a window onto a region of contrasts with a rich blend of cultural heritage, stunning wildlife and the continued practice of traditional arts and crafts. Your tour begins in the state’s largest city, India’s first UNESCO recognised city, Ahmedabad, to discover the city’s proud history with a visit the Calico Museum, one of the finest textile museums in the world, and learn how the city played a major part in the movement for Indian independence with a visit to Gandhi’s Sabarmati Ashram. From Ahmedabad you hit the road via the Lothal archaeological site to Bhavnagar for an overnight stay before climbing Shatrunjaya hill to reach its impressive collection of Jain temples. Continue to Sasan Gir to come face-to-face with Gujarat’s most famous resident, its population of wild Asiatic lions, followed by a two-night stay in Gondal to explore the vestiges of its royal past. The two remaining car journeys are long, at six hours each, but you will be rewarded with the medieval old town of Bhuj and the nearby Great Rann of Kutch, an area known for its villages and traditional textiles; following Bhuj is the rich biodiversity of the Little Rann of Kutch, the last remaining home for the Khur (Indian Wild Ass) on the subcontinent. The tour then rounds out with visits to the impressive sun temple at Modhera and the Rani-Ki-Vav stepwell of Patan enroute to spending a final night in Ahmedabad.
