When to visit Gir National Park?
Since the national park remains closed from June 16 to September 15 every year due to the monsoon, the ideal time to visit the place is between December and March.
The nearest airport located at Diu, which is approximately 92 km from the national park. Another good option is to take the flight to Rajkot. It is located 160 km from Gir.
Take the train to Junagadh from Ahmedabad or Rajkot. Hire a taxi from either of these railheads to Gir. The distance between Ahmedabad/Rajkot to Gir is 65 km.
Gir National Park is 60 km from Junagadh, the most common base for making a visit, and 360 km away from Ahmedabad. The main centre is at Sasan Gir, and has a forest guest house maintained by the park, just opposite the railway station.
