Is Pirotan open now? Hotel President makes all the arrangements - there is a guy there called Mushtaq who arranges permits and is the guide too.

I seriously and sincerely suggest that you should not miss out on Adalaj nu vav. It's anyways falls on your route from Ahmedabad to Gandhinagar. It's a marvel of a place. And if you like to snap away, this place will not leave you disappointed.

Still not clear yet. Its closed down as of now. I have spoken to Musthtaq. He is enquiring about it. If pirotan is closed, we plan a Coral walk around Narara, its around 60 kms from Jamnagar. Do you know how to track the tide timing ONLINE.

Mushtaq is the best guy to tell you all.
Normally, low tide is after 1130 am at Narara, so ideally, you leave Jamnagar by 9 am and reach Narara island by 1030-11.
No idea abut Pirotan, which is a full day boat tour

Back yesterday night after 3500 kms Gujarat (Saurashtra region) trip. Cities covered Ahmadabad, Rajkot, Jamnagar, Narara, Dwarka, Bet dwarka, Porbandar, Somnath, Veraval, Gir, Junagadh morbi and Udaipur.

Didnt know there is so much to see around in Gujarat.

The final itinerary was as follows

Day 1 - Delhi - Ahmadabad - 4.30am start and Ahmadabad - 0600 pm. 1 stop after Bhilwara.

Day-2 Ahmadabad and around.

Day-3 Ahmadabad - Narara marine wild life sanctuary, Dwarka (Started 5 am were there at narara by 10 am)

Day-4 Bet dwarka, Nageshwar Jyotirling, Rukmini devi temple, porbandar, Gir

Day- 5 Somnath, Veraval, around gir

Day - 6 Devalia, Gir Interpretation Zone, Junagadh, Rajkot, Morbi

Day - 7 Morbi - Udaipur - (via radhanpur,palanpur,abu road)

Day - 8 Udaipur - Delhi



Road condition :

Delhi - Jaipur - Good shape

Jaipur -via- Bhilwara(nh 76) Udaipur - Very good

Udaipur - Ahmd - OK, some bad patches after Ranakpur.

Ahmd - Rajkot - Good

Rajkot - Jamnagar - Toll road being constructed, diversions, but still drive fast.

Jamnagar - Dwarka - Good

Dwarka - Porbandar - Bad (Big pot holes)

Porbandar - Gir - We took NH 8B, Went through village roads after kutiana , there is a check post and flyover. Roads were bad, some places non existant, some places it was very good. Finally we hit NH 8d, just before Keshod. From Keshod - Mendarda - Gir.
This is the only section which has bad roads.

Gir - Morbi - Good roads

Morbi - Udaipur - Via samakhayali, radhanpur, palanpur, abu road - Best road. Covered 530 kms in just 7 hrs.

Udaipur - Delhi - From jaipur to Delhi , its messy, Full of diversion, jams. Jaipur Delhi with present road condition require 4.5 to 5 hrs.
