Just came back from Sasan Gir, by my Xcent 1.2.
Was a very good and pleasurable journey to GIR, my 1st visit. Had gone with my wife and nephews ( Teenagers, hence were very excited, also this was their 1st long drive at night !!) .
Route taken -> Vadaodara - > Borsad -> Tarapur -> Bagodra -> Limbdi -> Rajkot -> Junagadh ->GIR.
Started my journey at 2330 Hrs from Vadodara. Road condition is just OK from Vadodara to Borsad and after that it's not so good. Entire Patch is under construction and is quite narrow at some places with lots of Pot holes and Diversions
. Till Bagodra had to drive very carefully and slowly.
After Bagodra, it's NH8A, and very good and smooth all the way till Rajkot. Also, from Rajkot, had to drive carefully not to miss the By-pass from Rajkot to Junaghad.
From Junagadh to Gir, road is good and very scenic. We were able to spot several herds of dear / spotted Dear / Black Buck and several Birds on our way to GIR.
We stayed at GIR PRIDE RESORT. Which to me, is one of the best kept resorts with Full of Natural surroundings. Food was excellent and Swiss Tents were very good and Hygienic. RECOMMENDED FOR EVERY ONE TO STAY AT THIS ONCE.
Xcent returned an Average of 16.78 KMPL, which is Good for the Road condition. It took us about 6.5 Hrs to Reach our destination.
Will share Photos Shortly.
