Step Garden complies with the luxuriant greenery the popular hill station Saputara boasts of. Located in the state of Gujarat near its border with the state of Maharashtra, the garden is laid out in the form of steps and hence the name. What make the garden extremely beautiful are the rows of pots and vases on the steps. A variety of plants and flowers grown in them add unique splendour to the whole area.

In addition, there are gorgeous wooden carvings and woodwork that are arranged across the garden in the form of artefacts. The garden’s walls are lined up with tall trees like pines, enhancing its natural beauty further and there is a fountain flowing through different levels. There are forest huts in the middle of the garden for the guests to stay close to the nature. Ample of open space is available for the children to play and enjoy.
