Here and there the words miss the mark to portray the excellence of hardly any spots, and Polo Forest is one such objective. Some odd 159 km from Ahmedabad, there exist a supernatural place where there is Polo Forest in Vijaynagar, Gujarat – a spot that encourages you overlook all the concerns and find inward harmony.
Counting Polo Forest in my subsequent excursion was simply unintentional. I was wanting to visit Ahmedabad and afterward I read about Polo's vicinity to the city. The Google Map demonstrated Polo forest was just 160 km from Ahmedabad, which was an indication that my fantasy about visiting the woods was at long last going to work out as expected.
Polo Forest can be reached from Ahmedabad effectively on the off chance that you have a vehicle. Actually, a number of families visit Polo Forest throughout the end of the week and they bring their own vehicle. Polo is around 157 km from Ahmedabad.
In the event that you don't have the vehicle, similar to me, you can decide to take a transport from Geeta Mandir Bus Station to Idar (115 km). From Idar shared jeeps and private cars are accessible for Polo Forest, which is around 40 km away. The sharing jeep charges an ostensible cost, though private auto can be costly, state around INR 300.
Time Required to Explore Polo Forest: 4 – 5 hours
