jab main Gir gaya...

Thanks to my dear friend "M", I was able to see the Asiatic lions up close and personal :)

M decided to get married at the right place at the right time and we saw this as a window of opportunity to make a trip to the last of the asiatic lions at Gir National Park.
I booked a hotel near the Gir national park, The Gir Birding lodge. Though the hotel is expensive and isnt value for money but still given the 4 days of extended weekend, i did not want to take a chance and transferred the amount for 2 rooms in advance :)

We decided to take the flight to Diu early morning, and travel from Diu to Gir (100kms) by a car. The hotel asked for Rs.3500 for an AC innova for the 100kms journey, so we did not book any car and decided we will hire a car directly from Diu as we land..

As usual, the early morning mess of Jet awaited us at the Mumbai airport on 26th, but we did not have much problem in boarding our flight to Diu. It was a Mumbai-Porbandar-Diu-Mumbai flight. 
We reached Diu at exactly 8.30 on schedule and walked out on the tarmac to reach the arrival terminal..
