Taking an off from office on a Monday is the best thing you can ever do. Browsing thru Google Maps and the list of places I wanted to go (I have an excel file for the same :P) I found about Saputara which was just on the Maharashtra - Gujarat border. 220Kms one side, doable, I thought. I cleaned and lubed my bike and started preparing. Helmets - CheckGloves - CheckRiding Jacket - CheckKnee Guards - CheckDebit card and cash - Check Previous night excitement still exists. 2 years of travelling and it still lives, I love it!The thoughts were flowing, and I don’t know when I fell asleep. The alarm woke me up, it was 4am. It was time. Performed my morning chores and I was on the road at 5am. Filled fuel tank full and by 5.30 was on the NH3. Long straight highways without potholes, a blessing for a biker like me :)After about 180 kms, just after Nasik, I had to take a left turn. The board said "Saputara - 60 kms"And the pathetic roads began. After much of a struggle, reached Saputara. The place was nice and green. Few adventure games here and there. Roamed around on my bike for couple of hours and then hunted for a restaurant.Saw one which had the board “Unlimited Lunch @ 250 Rs”, bingo, hit a jackpot.Ate authentic Gujarat food and desert, i.e., Gulab Jamun :DThen dozed off on the sofa outside for about an hour and then started my return journey! Was home by 9pm. Day well spent.
Mount Abu in Rajasthan is a terrific tourist attractions and the Sunset at Sunset point is what you should definitely not miss. If you are a nature lover and keen to photograph the beauty of nature, then this is an ideal place. There is nothing extra ordinary here but the climate and the views make it a little more charming than many other hill stations. The best way to enjoy the sunset is while you take a boat ride in the Nakki Lake.
