History

At a distance of around 1.5 km from the Swagat circle, the Governor hill is a place to capture the sun going down the valley. It is called Governor’s hill because there was a plan to have Governor’s holiday residence over here. However the plan did not materialize. One can have a panoramic view of the Saputara down the valley. Apart from facilities for horse and camel riding and amusement facilities for children, the spot has some sweet-corn and tea stalls for refreshments. A steep hike to the hill does not give the idea of the vast table land here. Big vehicles like buses and low powered two wheelers find it difficult to reach the point. In monsoon, the hill gets covered with mist and fog after the rains – a spirit of bonhomie floats in the air with the clouds.

As you walk through this open expanse in the early hours of the day, you experience a mysterious dance of light slowly caressing life into the world. You have an amazing view of the valleys, streams and rivulets, and on your right you can see a railing demarking the Gujarat-Maharashtra border. During certain seasons in the evening you can have camel rides or buy local snacks on this otherwise quiet hilltop.

Governor’s hill is highly commercialized area of Saputara.
