Are we in Udaipur or Gujarat? Quite interestingly Udaipur city was and is still abuzz with Gujarati tourists which gives you a feel of Gujarat on roads and at tourist spots.
Because of Annakoot utsav after Diwali, the city can be seen full of Gujarati tourists upto the entire length of Nathdwara. The way the roads and tourist spots are full of Gujarati tourists, it makes you wonder whether you are in Udaipur or Gujarat. Traffic jams have been a common issue these days as most of the Gujarat crowd drives down to Udaipur.
It has also been reported that parking became such a great issue that many a tourists had to return from outside the tourist spots as entry seemed next to impossible. The inner city lanes were also jam-packed with Gujarati tourists. Tourists even complained that they were willing to park their vehicles much away from the tourist spot and wanted to walk to their destination but in vain.
One tragic event was reported that two vehicles banged into each other when one of them had a break failure at Gorela uphill. The only point of relief was that the vehicles didn’t fall down into the valley. Everyone was reported safe. Many tourists wanted to visit Sajjangarh but were not allowed as the place was completely full.
