Jai Somnath,

I had done the dwarka somnath trip in the end November'2011.The route we followed : taken rajdh to Amd from Del.Reachd (Day 1) Amd in the morning and visited sabarmati ashram and Akshardham temple. Later in the night took verawal exp for somnath.(Day 2)In somnath we stayed at Lilavathi Bhawan,(best accom in the somnath).At somnath we took the bus tour organised by the trust, covering all the temples in the vicinity of somnath.Day 3 we left for Diu by taxi and returned to somnath by evening.(Day4) morning at 8.00 we left for Dwarka by pvt bus(only option as taxi is quiet costly. We reachd dwarka by 1500 hrs there we stayed at Hotel Bansi( decent hotel). In the evening we visited temple. On 5th day we went for Bheyt dwarka amd other temples by the tourist bus managed by Dwarka Muncipal committee at 0800 hrs. The bus completed the tour and reachd Dwarka at 1400 hrs.6th day we took early morning train to Amd and on the evening we took Rajd from Amd to Del.


If you are travelling with family covering Sasan Gir and other places requires time and money as the taxi is costly and much cannot be said about the local transport.

Few Imp Points:

1. Booking at Lilavathi bhawan can be done on phone and prior booking is very much needed.
2. Local sight seeing is best done in state/trust tour/buses.
3. Bus booking for Somnath to Dwk should be done in advance as there are not many buses.(timings 8.00 and 14.00.

Travel Buses ply between Ahmedabad to Somnath. these buses has sitting and sleeping seats. Fare Rs.200 and Rs.300. It is around 7 hour journey. I just completed it one week ago but someone book this seat for me. Mostly travel agent in Ahmedabad can book it. But you have enough time it will great if you go in train.
Best Regards,

(ii) How to book rooms at "Lilavathi Bhawan" in Somnath? Its tariffs. Do they have any online booking facility?

(iv) How much the taxi charged you during the tour to DIU? Do you have any contact details? What to see at DIU?

Thanks in advance.
