Saputara prides itself for being one of the few hill stations in Gujarat. Located at a distance of about 160 km from Surat, this quaint town becomes a trekker's paradise in winters, when adventure enthusiasts arrive to traverse to Gandhi Shikhar. The rolling hills of Saputara are particularly enchanting during monsoons when their thick forest covers acquire a green freshness. From the Governor's Hill, one can catch the beautiful view of the sun dipping into the Saputara Lake, painting the sky in myriad hues of red. Lying in the Sahyadri range, at a height of 1,000 m above sea level, Saputara derives its name from the snake god revered by tribals, who are the predominant inhabitants, and translates as the abode of serpents.
