Being in a city like Ahmedabad, where there is nothing much to do other than hogging on street food or just any food, shopping some traditional clothes/ornaments of Gujarat and sipping chai available at any nukkad of this city. On weekends, when your mind and body are totally in love with your bed during those winter days, who could think about waking up couple of hours before sunrise and go see the sunrise which is about 30 kms away from your home? Not Gujjus for sure.

Ride to Thol lake

Being a Cycling enthusiast and travel explorer, I love to going to take my bike and just get out of the city to get closer to nature. Thol lake is one of my favorite places to visit on weekends. Ride to thol lake is amazing starting from city like ahmedabad to couple of villages, narmada canal, a lake and happiest people smiling back at you along with their pets. Cycling on that road gives such bliss and peace, you just want to fly in that wind with birds and sun rising behind you.

Sunrise at Thol Lake

Not a fan of exercising? Grab your motorcycle or car, this lake is just 40 to 50 mins away from Ahmedabad city. Wake up in the dawn and get yourself ready for this amazing place to see the perfect sunrise just above the lake with hundreds of birds as they fly by you. Entry to this lake is 50/- bucks per person.

Day 1

Not just a lake, but open forest around this lake is perfect to roam around or just to sit with someone for long hours or just by yourself talking to the nature sharing anything you want.

Thol Lake

Lake is so serene with blue water, green grass covering your shoes, bent trees dipping in the water to taste that yummy stuff, people silhouetting and giving you perfect dancing picture with sunrise, birds chirping, some youngsters playing football in small open field or some couple making their memories wearing perfect shining clothes.
