Maharashtra’s Valley of flowers:
The Kaas Plateau where hundreds of varieties of wild flowers of all colors bloom every year; is situated approx. 25 Km from Satara city.
The lateritic plateau of Kaas has becomes home to millions of tiny flowers in late monsoons. The whole spectacle is beyond words.
More than 300 varieties of wild flowers, herbs, orchids, shrubs, insectivorous plants etc. can be seen here.
This plateau overlooks the lush evergreen forests that serves as a water catchment area of Koyna Dam and which is recently declared as “Sahyadri Tiger reserve”
In monsoon the whole area transforms into an unbelievable carpets of flowers like yellow carpets of Smithia and Sonki flowers, Pink carpets of Balsam, Purple carpets of Karvi etc….
It is a dream destination not only for avid botanists but also for those who appreciate nature. These carpets change colors almost every week depending on the dominant flowers during that time.
Kass plateau and the surrounding area has a very good birdlife with good sightings of Crested Buntings, Malabar Crested Larks, Oriental White-eyes, and Bonelli’s Eagle.
