Getways from Baroda

    1. Discover history at Champaner

    Did you know you stay just 50 km away from a UNESCO World Heritage Site? Champaner is a very important town from the Chavda dynasty, and was the site for its downfall as well. The place has many historical leftovers from that era.

    To get there, you need to go by the State Highway 87. You can zip through it, and ask your wife to close her eyes and feel the wind in her face. Soon, you will reach Halol – take a right to reach Champaner via SH180.

    The history starts before you hit the town proper, with the Tomb of Sikandar Shah. Once you reach, you should ride to the Champaner-Pavagadh Archaeological Park – here you will see stunning ruins and monuments of an era long gone. You will see the transition from Hindu to Muslim architecture here too. Apart from this, you will see the Jama Masjid. The city is walled as well, you can take a ride around it.

    After you soak in a slice of history, share a plate of pani-puri and head back out on the highway, with the evening sun on your happy faces!

  • 2. See the wildlife at Jambugodha Sanctuary

    Between monsoon and winter, this is a fabulous place to go to, especially if you like nature and wildlife! You will pass Champaner – so you would be familiar with the same wonderful route. Slow your bike down to once again observe the grandeur of the past, and then zip along NH5 to reach the sanctuary. It is ideal to combine a trip with Jambugodha – though we would say to stop by there in the evening – the structures look magnificent in the evening. If you want to stop on the way, there are many excellent restaurants and hotels for you to relax in before you reach.

    The actual sanctuary covers 130 square km, and is home to many animals. It's hard to leave your second love (the bike) behind, but you can take your first love (your wife!) for a small hike at the capable hands of your guide. If you are lucky, you will spot the magnificent beasts in their natural environment! If you want to do something you've never tried before as a couple, you can even camp in a lodge! After you're done, get back on your bike – it's a long but lovely ride back.

  • 3. A long, rewarding ride to Nalsarovar

    Are you ready for a nice, long ride? Then get onto your bike, tell your wife to hold on, as you zip down SH11, and move onto SH8 at Borsad. It's a fabulous road, and many bikers swear by it! There are many dhabas on the way, where you can stop for a bite to eat.

    The beautiful bird sanctuary at Nalsarovar will be worth the long ride. Since birds are best spotted early in the morning (the sanctuary opens at 6 AM), you can either have an adventurous night ride, or stay at Bagodara, near Ahmedabad, for the night, before riding down before dawn. You can ask a boatman to take you around, and take your wife on a horse ride too! Finally, if you ask around, you might discover some authentic Kathiawadi food. The park closes at 6 PM, so you can spend a large part of the day just soaking in nature, talking, discovering each other before hitting the highway again and going back home.
