Jambughoda Resort Places to visit

Welcome to my blog of Jambhugoda Resort places to visit part 1 where I will explain my story of exploring Jambhugoda, a hamlet hidden in Gujarat.

Since coming home I have been constantly asked one question – Which is the best part from your Jambughoda wildlife sanctuary?

I couldn’t select any one to answer this as i am in love with each and every corner of the “Jambughoda wildlife sanctuary”. That says, there are many places in “Jambughoda” which i adored.


Here are those places, Let me start with my favourite spot in Jambughoda-“Bhat”

There are two location which you can explore in “Bhat” 

  1. Gagar mata temple & watch tower: Pride of jambhugoda places to visit

I was unable to find a word to describe this place. Can you see the sunrise in the above picture? I am sure you loved it as I couldn’t take my eyes off for 1 and a half hours from this. This drop is approximately between 60 to 200ft. It’s dangerous if you get too close to the edge. This was completely breathless and surprisingly empty. I am still dumbfounded as to why!

We reached there at 5:30 in the morning to adore the sungames early in the morning not to mention it was totally worth it.

Things to carry when you visit this place:

Hat/ umbrella/ head cover,


Enough refreshments,

Bug spray (In case a bee takes fancy to your hair).

SUVs will fare better than sedan.

The only thing I know, it is incredibly gorgeous and it gives you a moment of tranquility. If you like this combination and have a possibility, definitely worth trying.

This location is on the way to Dhanpuri from Vadodara. 

Let me make it more informative.

  • Ok so there are some hiking trails around the area which can’t be missed if you’re at jambughoda.

  • Stay places are nicely maintained and the best part is the food area is near about 1 km or so. It’s a place near Jambughoda, 30 Kms far from Pavagadh hill.

This place with its rough road is hard for some to love but not for me. Pebbles and stones, this place has an arty feel to it.

  1. Chase the sunrise at Cheetah tekri: 

It was a perfect beginning of the day. As the sun rises and it gives me the feeling of fulfillment, of energy flowing through my body and it was just the beginning of the day! 

Some people pay a lot to get such viewpoints. I am lucky enough to live in a city close to such an amazing location. People are so busy these days they just forget how incredible it is. I felt all of those moments which one should enjoy everyday. 

Now when we were there at the location called “Cheetah tekri”  No we didn’t have any excuses for not watching the sun rising. We lived very close to sun beams. We experienced again all these amazing feelings from the prior COVID trips. We saw the sun rays changing from red to yellow. We saw this beautiful sky which we captured for you guys. 

We felt calmer and fascinated and we decided not to skip any moment. Because we had an amazing opportunity and we didn’t want to miss it.
