A travel information guide of Devmogra Eco Tourism Campsite. Devmogra is a village in Narmada district of Gujarat.
A few months back, I was contacted by Narmada Forest Department to improve digital presence of Rajpipla eco tourism campsites. I, along with help of my younger brother Kunj Dodiya, set out to document every campsite in Narmada district by photos, videos and web pages.
Following is the account of Dev Mogra Eco Tourism Campsite:
Please note that we photographed the campsite in the month of February 2018, which isn’t the best time to capture beauty of Narmada region. Expect the campsite to be a lot more vibrant and green in the monsoon and post monsoon months upto December.

Devmogra had me experience the true “adivasi” culture. The village is more so known for the Devmogra Mata temple. Although I wasn’t fortunate enough to attend the famous fair, I have heard vibrant stories of the fair. People from all neighboring states of Gujarat – Maharashtra, MP and Rajasthan attend the fair.
