Mishraji,

Are you planning on hiring a car from Ahmedabad? If so, your route would be Ahmedabad-Limdi-Rajkot-Jamnagar- Dwarka. From Dwarka you have two options. The shorter route is Jamnagar-Dhoraji-Junagadh-Sasan Gir-Veraval/Somnath. If you want the scenic coastal route you could drive Jamnagar-Khambhaliya-Porbandar-Veraval/Somnath. Hope this helps.

Hi

Day 1 - Dwarka

I am just back from Dwarka - Somnath - Gir yesterday. If you are at Dwarka . One full day is enough to stay in Dwarka . I had taken a local Auto Rickshaw at Morning 8.00 or 9.00 am for a local Mandir tour . It costed me Rs.150 for 6 mandir visit . After that at 2 pm , we had taken a Beyt Dwarka tour from local bus operator which costed me Rs.70 per person . This bus tour includes all 4 local temple enroute to Beyt Dwarka.

Day 2 - Dwarka to Somnath ( by Bus)

We had taken a morning 7.30 am bus to Somnath . enroute they had shown 2 mandir and we had reached somnath by 2 pm. We had stayed in Hotel Sukh Sagar which is 2 km before Veraval Somnath Highway. I highly recommend to stay at Somnath Trust Operated Guest house i.e VIP Guest House or Lilavati Guest house. Its opposite to Somnath Mandir.

Day 3.

We hired a taxi @ Rs.1400 for Local Somnath Tour and Gir Forest . We had opted for Bus Safari at Gir which costed us Rs.115 per ticket ( else in normal season it cost us Rs.75 per head) . its 30 min ride in gir forest . after that we proceed for local Somnath temples. For Taxi , i had taken a taxi from Mr Lala ( trust worthy Tour operator) 098248 61976. They had fleet of 40 taxis in their family. There are also local tours organized by Somnath Trust which will cost you Rs.20 per head .

Do you want to see Ahmedabad? If not take the train to Rajkot. Hire a car there. You can then do Rajkot-Dwarka-Somnath-Junagdh/Gir-Rajkot and back to Pune. It makes more sense to combine Somnath and Gir since they are very close to each other. I would recommend you email www.GirCosmic.com and see if they can help.
