Nauka Vihar

A boat ride at the Statue of Unity is a nice experience. There are so many crocodiles in the river, and we were lucky to see them. Peacocks and other birds are seen at the river bank. Even leopards are to be occasionally spotted.

The entry should not be time-based. There should be some seating arrangements, and let people wait in the boating site, instead of waiting at the Statue. The total duration of each ride is 45 minutes and eight rides in a day. The ecosystem around the lake is fascinating. The boating facility at SOU is a nice experience.

Nauka Vihar is the drive to boost tourism in the Kevadia circuit.
