Hub(s) : Surat


As you walk through this open expanse in the early hours of the day, you experience a mysterious dance of light slowly caressing life into the world. You have an amazing view of the valleys, streams and rivulets, and on your right you can see a railing demarking the Gujarat-Maharashtra border. During certain seasons in the evening you can have camel rides or buy local snacks on this otherwise quiet hilltop.
