15 Best Picnic Places to Visit Near Ahmedabad for One/Two Days Trip

Published By: Jignesh Gohel on May 8, 2024

Being a moderator at Ahmedabad’s most popular Facebook groups “Travelaholics of Ahmedabad” & “TheIndia”, we used to receive hundreds of queries about the best places to visit near Ahmedabad. I did a detailed analysis about the common questions we are receiving and which includes:

  • Which are the best picnic places near Ahmadabad?
  • Which are the best places to visit near Ahmedabad for one day picnic with family, friends, or office staff?
  • Any picnic places near Ahmedabad having games & other fun activities where we can spend whole day?
  • Which is the best weekend getaway from Ahmadabad?
  • Suggest the best places near Ahmedabad for school picnics etc..

And the list is very long, but We tried to include the most common questions we received so far.

Ahmedabad being the seventh largest city in India and the biggest in Gujarat is a major base of occupation, business and trade for industrial and financial growth of the state. Being unknown from the nearby city’s wealth of picnic spots, Amdavadis complaint about finding no nearby picnic spot to spend the weekend with family and friends in complete peace and have fun all together. If you are in Pune or Mumbai, you can easily find plenty of weekend getaway but when it comes to Ahmedabad, you will have limited options to explore.

As there are many places available, single article is not enough to list the places which are located near Ahmadabad and easily accessible by road which includes Amusement parks, historical monuments and public places. This is the reason, we have decided to create separate article categorized by the theme and relevancy of the places and activities.

In our series, the articles are decided in to 3 below parts:

  • Picnic Places – Public places where you can directly visit without prior booking or with due permission from the government. The current article will cover those places and detailed information.
  • Picnic / Weekend Resorts – Private places like resorts / hotels or fun parks you can directly visit or can book your trip in advance. We have created dedicated article to cover private properties and resorts located near Ahmedabad for day trip or weekend stay.
  • Places to Visit in Ahmedabad – This article / section is covering tourist places like temple, river front, picnic spots or any public places which are located in Ahmedabad.

You can visit respective article depending upon your requirement. It will save your time and can easily choose the place to plan your day trip or tour within or near by Ahmedabad.

Lets start this article with our recommended picnic places near Ahmedabad for a weekend or day trip.

List of Picnic Places Near Ahmedabad:

If you are looking for public places you can visit for a day trip, there are limited options available. In this section of the article, we tried to cover 14 most popular and easy to access public places near Ahmedabad. The most common type are historical monuments, temple, public parks, forest area or bird sanctuaries for a best experience.

Please note that, the summer is very hot in Ahmedabad and I strongly recommend checking for weather as few places are only open / recommended during monsoon or winter season. Our list will start with one of my favorite places I have explored many times from Ahmedabad.

1. Polo Forest:

Polo Forest
Green Lush Forest Area Near Ahmedabad

Polo forest is my favorite picnic place to spend quality time in nature and I strongly recommend spending one night here to reveal its natural beauty. I recommend this place to visit during monsoon season where you can also go for trekking. Popped between sanctified hills on the east and west, polo forest holds the stories from past. It sounds horrifying but there are ancient temples, several still carrying out their pujas deep inside this thick jungle. This forest itself is one big temple and the trees themselves are the gods. Polo forest is considered as one of the most popular weekend getaway near Ahmedabad where the government of Gujarat organizes Polo utsav every year.

You can easily find places to stay and food in Polo forest but you need to make prior booking, especially during weekends by considering rush. If you are planning for a day trip, you can easily conduct road trip to Polo forest where you can start early in the morning from Ahmedabad and can return by late evening. Please note that, there is no entry fees to visit Polo forest as it is open and public place.

Activities to Do:

Traveler can do trekking and photography of ancient temples and go on a forest trail at Polo forest. During polo utsav, you can also participate in cycling and enjoy the various cultural activities at Polo forest. You can hire guide from polo campsite who can help you to plan trekking activities around. Please note that, don’t go inside forest without experience guide.

Distance from Ahmadabad: 156 Km

Here is the video from my recent trip to Polo forest from Ahmedabad:

Resorts in Polo Forest:

If you really want to experience the nature, book your stay (If you are lucky to receive reply) at Polo campsite operated by forest department and the most economical place to stay in Polo forest. As explained, Polo forest is surrounded by nature and the only activity is touristy. You will find few luxury resorts in Polo forest but most of them are located bit far (1 to 5 KM) from Polo camp site and they are bit expensive too.

If you are looking for luxury stay in Polo forest, you can check Fern Sattva Resort.

Best Season:

The best season to visit Polo forest is monsoon and winter. Avoid summer as you will hardly find any water body during this season.

      Thank you for writing Jagadish ji,
      Yes you can explore many good places of Gujarat in 7 days but the itinerary can be designed wisely. Here are 2 different plan for you to work on:

      1) Ahmedabad – Kutch (Bhuj – Dhordo) – Dwarka (Via Morbi / Jamnagar) – Somnath – Ahmedabad
      2) Ahmedabad – Dwarka – Okha – Somnath – Sasan Gir – Junagadh – Ahmedabad

      Here you can plan places as per your itinerary and feel free to write incase if you still need any help.

      Thank you.

      – Full day package (9AM to 9PM) will cost 1500/- INR
      – Hald package (9AM to 6PM) will cost 1200/- INR
      – Evening package (3:30PM to 6PM) will cost 900/- INR

      Apart from this, they are also offering dinner package, night stay etc but the charges may vary depending upon requirement. Please note that the above charges does not include GST charge. It will be added 18% extra as per the information we have.

          February 27, 2018 at 1:54 pm

          Thank you Shalin for your comment inquiring resort charges mention in this article. It will be totally depending upon the resort you visit in Ahmedabad. We recommend you connect with them from the specified link and directly contact for the pricing. Due to Holi festival season, chances are high you will get higher price.

      October 31, 2017 at 4:38 pm

      Thank you Keval for your comment,
      As there are many places around Gujarat (outside of it) for 3 to 4 days trip. Here are few of them for your reference:
      – Rajasthan (Abu, Udaipur, Jaipur) – if you are looking for offbeat places, you can also go to Barmar, Pushkar, etc)
      – Maharshtra (Matheran, Lonawala etc)

      You can also plan Diu too.

      If you are looking for specific places (theme), let me know. Can suggest accordingly.

      Hi Ravi,
      Most of the places will have basic tickets if you take Kankariya, Akshardham or any places. Yes, polo forest does not have any entry ticket but it is located bit far from Ahmedabad.

      Hi Jinal,

      Thank you for writing.

      If you are planning for a 2 days trip outside of Gujarat, Udaipur or Maharashtra can be best choice. Again it is depending upon which part of Gujarat you are staying. Can you please share more information about type of places you want to explore? We can suggest more information accordingly. Also share your current location in Gujarat.
