Hingolgadh Nature Education Sanctuary


The green lush patch of the Hingolgadh Sanctuary stands in stark contrast with the arid zone of neighboring areas of Saurashtra. Spread over an area of 654 sq kms, it was declared a sanctuary in 1980. In 1984 its natural offerings led to recognition of the sanctuary as an eco-educational center and it is now administrated by the Gujarat Ecological Education and Research (GEER) Foundation in Gandhinagar as the Hingolgadh Nature Education Sanctuary.

The tropical grassland ecosystem is a unique dwelling for diverse range of animals and reptiles. Chinkara, Bluebull, Wolf, Jackal, Fox, Indian Porcupine, Indian Hare, Hyena, Flying fox and almost 230 different kinds of birds can be found in the Sanctuary.

The Sanctuary is 32 km. from Gondal and 70 km. from Rajkot.
