The Western ghats and the Sahyadri ranges in particular are probably the most idiosyncratic locations one can ask for. If it boasts of the searing waterfalls and the rocky cliffs, it also lays out lush carpets of plateaus and the most noteworthy of them is the Kaas Plateau!
Rising to a height of 1200 meters from the sea level and spread across 10 sq kms, it is a spectrum of colours in the monsoon. Declared as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
Situated near Satara, this plateau turns into a Valley of Flowers in the month of August/September. Falling in close proximity of the Northern part of the Koyna Wildlife Sanctuary, the major portion of the plateau is reserve forest.
Given a bird eye`s view, the Kaas plateau boasting of the Kaas lake which is a perennial source of water to Satara- thanks to gravity, it appears as though a bowl carved out of the Sahyadri mountains.
Innumerable endemic, endangered and exotic plants are found on this plateau. Kaas withholds more than 850 species of flowering plants, 624 of which have entered the Red Data Book and 39 out of these 624 are only found in Kaas.
We are pleased to be your escorts to this world heritage site with a motive of spreading awareness about this wonderland that not many around us are aware of!!!
