This route goes to The Kamleshwar Dam, officially known as the Hiran-I Dam, which is a rock-fill embankment dam on the Hiran River in Visavadar. The dam is located within the Gir Forest National Park and was completed in 1959 for irrigation purposes.The reservoir created by the dam is known for its bird and crocodile populations.

The seven major perennial rivers of the Gir region are Hiran, Shetrunji, Datardi, Shingoda, Machhundri, Godavari and Raval. The four reservoirs of the area are at four dams, one each on Hiran, Machhundri, Raval and Shingoda rivers, including the biggest reservoir in the area, the Kamleshwar Dam, dubbed 'the lifeline of Gir'.
During peak summer, surface water for wild animals is available at about 300 water points. When drought hits the area following a poor rainfall, surface water is not available at a majority of these points, and water scarcity becomes a serious problem (mainly in the eastern part of the sanctuary). Ensuring the availability of water during peak summer is one of the major tasks of the Forest Department staff .
