Details

The Kaas Plateau is situated 25 kilometers west of Satara city in Maharashtra. It falls under the Sahyadri Sub Cluster of the Western Ghats, and it became a part of a UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site in 2012.

Locally called as 'Kas Pathar' or 'Plateau of Flowers', the plateau is home to more than 850 species of flowering plants. The flora of Kas i. e. the entire flowering plants and their related plants are typically restricted to that particular locality only. Many species which are still new to the Botanical Science are observed on the plateau. Many of the endemic, endangered plants are found on Plateau. Plateau seems to change the colors after every 15- 20 days as the cycle of flowering plants progresses with the monsoon progress from June to October.

Highlights

  • Visit Maharashtra's Valley of Flowers which is home to around 850 species of flowers
  • Visit the spectacular Thoseghar Waterfalls
