At a distance of 5 km from Waghai and 49 km from Saputara, Gira Falls is a seasonal waterfall located at Wanarchod village near Saputara. Situated on the Saputara-Waghai Road, it is one of the picturesque waterfalls in Gujarat, and among the major places to visit near Saputara.

Also known as Giradudh, Gira Waterfall is formed over the Kapri River and eventually drops into the Ambika River. The height of the falls is about 75 feet and the speed of the water plunging into the river creates a foggy look giving it a charming feel. The Gira Falls is a favorite among the tourists who visit this area as part of Saputara tour. The place has now developed into a great picnic spot.

The waterfall is a great stopover for those travelling from Saputara towards Surat. The falls can only be reached by 1 km trekking from the parking place. There are many picnic huts in the vicinity of Gira Falls, along with various small tea and snack stalls. Tourists also visit the beautiful Waghai Botanical Garden nearby which has a variety of plants and trees, providing a marvelous view of different varieties of bamboo groves

The best season to visit the waterfalls is the post-monsoon season.
