Gira Waterfalls,Dangs,Gujarat

Gira Waterfalls-Day-2

Located at a distance of 5 km from Waghai off Waghai-Saputara road, the Gira waterfall is a 30 m natural plunge into the Ambika river. Breathtakingly beautiful, this seasonal waterfall (June-December) is among the most picturesque sights in the district.

Rising in the Kem hills situated near Bondarmal (Dangs) and Shribhuvan (Maharashtra) villages, the river Ambika flows past Rambhas and Waghai villages of the District and finally meets the Arabian Sea near Bilimora in Valsad district.

There are some tea and snacks stalls along with view huts for relaxing and picnicking. Some make-shift shacks selling various local handicrafts from bamboo. A typical Dangi village named Ambapada is located near Gira falls. The route is soothingly scenic as it is surrounded by lush and tall bamboos. The tourist can take a walk in and around the village and visit some tribal 
artists making various handicrafts from bamboo stem and roots.
