From coastlines like nothing before to hues that are sure to mesmerize you, Gujarat is truly your place to be! Let the ruins of the ancient Indus Valley civilizations aspire you to venture even more, much further. Not to mention a perfect visit to the Gir Forest, and of course the legacy of Mahatma Gandhi that’s amiss too. Dance in the streets on Navaratri and relish the heartwarming hospitality. That is to say, be astonished by the thrilling architecture in Ahmadabad, rich wildlife reserves at Gir and Dasada, white sandy beaches at Diu, and the vibrance along with a splash of colors which are quite common in this righteous land!
The morning after breakfast is when you check out of the hotel and take a sightseeing tour of western part of Sabarmati River but before that visit The Calico Museum. This is one of the best textile museums in the world. After this, we all proceed to a restaurant for lunch en route. In afternoon we will cover the western part of Sabarmati River. We will then visit to Gandhi Ashram. In 1917, Mahatma Gandhi established the Satyagraha Ashram along the Sabarmati River. He chose a barren location so that he could experiment with farming, livestock and other ideas. Hridaya Kunj, the simple cottage where he lived, is now a national monument and preserved as it was during the Mahatma’s life-time. In the evening visit, Sarkhej Roza which is about 8 kilometers away from the city, Sarkhej Roza houses one of the most beautiful complexes in Gujarat. We then have dinner and move to Diu. This could be your most anticipated Gujarat college trip and truly, what a wow!!
