At the heart of Saputara is a lake, with boating facilities. A climbing road takes you up to the Chimney ropeway, from where you can enjoy a panoramic view of the hills.
The 'Pushpak Ropeway' is nearly one km long and is usually busy in the evenings. Children
and young couples eagerly await their turn on the countries
longest ropeway. The Dangs, in which Saputara lies,
rises from 50 to 1083 m above sea level offering a vista
of paradise. The climate here is cool and bracing throughout
the year. The monsoon being pleasant with small flittering
waterfalls all around and the hill resort looking beautifully
green. It is 160 Kms from Surat. Best time to visit
is between April to early July. Pretty pieces of pottery,
jewellery, vases, paintings, pen stands, key chains,
all made from bamboo chips and other locally found material
can be purchased from here. Children can learn to make
simple items in the workshop organised by the craftsmen.
