Gir National Park Vacations
When it comes to getting the best from your precious vacation time, it's worth remembering that Gir National Park is merely just the start; Gujarat has been blessed with a treasure-trove of scenic wonders. Sasan, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the southeast, and Diu, 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the north of Gir National Park are also waiting to be discovered.
Approximately 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the south of Gir National Park is Diu, a regional city where you'll find Gomtimata Beach, Panikotha Fort and Diu Fort. Nagoa Beach and Jallandhar Beach are just a sample of the other visitor attractions in Diu.
If you are after things to do inside, make a beeline for Gujarat's craft workshops, art galleries and art museums. These are great places to to learn a little about the region's rich cultural tapestry and perhaps find a unique souvenir. To discover the spiritual side of Gir National Park, be sure to spend a little time at the area's many mosques.
Water-based sports are a common activity here. Don't miss the opportunity to go rafting or boating; this region has some perfect spots. If you're not the kind of traveler to go on holiday simply to relax, the Gir National Park area offers plenty of action-packed pursuits such as caving and hiking.
Even the best vacation can't last forever, so when it's time return home, you'll find the nearest major airport in Diu, 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the south.
