    Yes Kedar - Punto-ed as far as Gujarat is concerned there a lot of places which has something uniquenss in it - I Have shifted to Vadodara
    from nashik recently and feel that City itself is very warm and welcoming ... Have visited few outskirts of Vadodara - which included
    1) Pavagadh - A godess Temple is situated on a hughe mountain - good for trekking
    2) Jambughoda - Full of thrill and adventure . you can expect leopard / hynas in this region -
    3) Hatni Matha - A shiv temple located at such a place where in you have to actually pass the waterfall to reach the temple in rainy season
    4) Champaner - Historical architect to see at this location.
    5) Wadwana - place bird lovers to visit in winter ,as most of the migrating birds stay at this location between Nov to Feb

    All these places are around 70 to 80 kms range from vadodara city ..

    Rest I think @Mitesh Pujnani and @Neel will have plenty to add on this

    @ Punto-ed, Ashish and Kedar... It depends on which season they want to visit Gujarat... As summer is damn Hott.

    It also depends on what is the interest area?? Are they interested in ancient and historic places?

    During rann-utsav in winter- dessert of Kutchh is real good. Club it with place called Mandvi very near by.

    Gir National lion sanctuary is superb.
    They can even visit Dasada wild sanctuary.

    Somnath, chorvaad, Kaladungar are also lovely places.

    Adalaj step well, modhera sun temple and sarkhej roza also worth visiting.

    As Ashish already mentioned... Pavagadh, champaner and jambughoda are also lovely places. Few forts and palaces to be visited there.

    You must do "Heritage walk" in Ahmedabad old city.

    I also suggest to visit Sardar Sarovar. It's a big check dam on Narmada River. Also visit Kabir-vadd nearby.

    And Yes, most importantly - Don't forget to call me and catch up when you are in Ahmedabad. :)

    Let me know if one wants to know more about any particular place. I will try to fetch you the details if at all I don't know.

    Cheers.. :up

    That's a great idea Ashish... But as you know, I am going to Goa from 3rd January to 7th January. So I will not be available in those days, apart from that I am up for party ;-)

    Cheers... :up

    Wow , that's great . So this thread is really helping then at-least for the two members now.

    Can you exactly mention the dates ?? so that if possible we can co-ordinate and have mini meet :)

    Neel

    My plan is after jan 7th only. As i am targeting Amritsar , Agara , Rajasthan last Gujarat. Hence we can meet.

    My plan is to Visit Rann of Kutch , Somanthapur , Gir National Forest ( Hoping i am lucky enough to spot Lions and tigers ) and other interesting places where Modi has shown his magic just to witness them ,

    I am entering From Rajasthan and will exit towards Mumbai.

    Will update the exact dates in a day or two.

    @ Punto-ed

    That's perfect. We surely will meet bro. I am available after 7th January.

    Another suggestion.
    If you are planning to come to gujarat in january than Try to be in Ahmedabad on Makar sankranti - 14th January if possible. Here we call it Uttarayan. Ahmedabad's kite flying featival of Uttarayan is world famous.

    And just noticed ... Puntoed and Punto-ed are two different people and both are coming to Gujarat. Almost same TFI handle confused me. Sorry.

    Cheers...

    Neel
