Sights and Activities

Gir Forest National Park

Champaner-Pavagadh Archaeological Park

Listed on UNESCO's World Heritage list Champaner-Pavagadh Archaeological Park is a concentration of largely unexcavated archaeological, historic and living cultural heritage properties. More information can be found on the Champaner-Pavagadh Archaeological Park page.

Like much of India, Gujarat is experiencing two significant seasons: the wet from June to October and the dry from November to February. It's not as wet as much of India though. March to May generally is dry, but temperatures during these months can reach well over 40 °C which, combined with the humidity, obviously is not the best time to visit. Instead, choose the months of December and January if you want to avoid the worst conditions. Temperatures are still mostly between 25 and 30 °C but nights are pleasant at an average of 15 °C. It's almost guaranteed dry and sunny.
Note that there are huge differences regarding rainfall: the north is an arid region, bordering the southwestern parts of Rajasthan, whereas the southern region, bordering the Indian Ocean, is much wetter and humidity is high year round.
