    It is going to be a 2 day jam-packed trip to Kaas Pathar and Koyna backwaters.

    In the months of August and September, it is a biodiversity hotspot known for various types of seasonal wildflowers blooming and numerous species of endemic butterflies. The plateau is about 10 square kilometres in size and sits at an altitude of 1200 metres. Kaas has over 850 different flowering plant species. Orchids, shrubs like the Karvy, and carnivorous plants like Drosera Indica are among them. Kaas Pathar is a volcanic-rock plateau in the Satara district of Maharashtra that falls under the Western Ghats biosphere. The flora of kaas, i.e. all flowering plants are usually limited to a particular area only.

    The fort was built by Bahmani kings who ruled from 1347 to 1527. It was later taken over by Chhatrapati Shivaji, Maharashtra’s famous warrior king, after falling under the Adil Shahi dynasty. He asked his guru, Samarth Ramdas, to establish an ashram within the fort, which was named Sajjangad, which means “fort of good men.”

    Thoseghar waterfalls are part of a series of small and large picturesque waterfalls, some of which are only 15-30 metres tall, while the tallest is around 500 metres. The Thoseghar Waterfall is also known as the Ram and Lakshman Waterfalls, according to legend. As a result, the falls have been named after the Hindu gods Ram and Lakshman, as the name suggests.

     Aside from the multicoloured views presented by the Kaas plateau, there are many activities worth exploring and performing. Check out our suggestions to make your holiday even more enjoyable:

    1. You can park your cars on the side of the road and walk to the Kaas lake. Bring your own snacks, soft drinks, and a chatai, and you’ve got yourself a lakeside picnic! The more daring visitors can even go on a brisk Kaas Plateau trek in the area, imprinting the sights in mind and savouring the escape from the city in a whole new way. Before the lake, there are a few local restaurants that serve excellent zunka-bhakri, kanda bhaji, vada pav, and Maggi.
    2. There is a mud road that leads to the Vajrai falls from the Kaas village. You can park your car in Kaas village and then take the trail to the end of the road, which obscures the valley and the might of three-stepped Vajrai Waterfall, which can be seen from afar. The valley panorama, the waterfall, and the low floating clouds are truly magical.
    3. Bamnoli, a quaint settlement on the banks of Shivsagar Lake 15 kilometres from the Kaas Plateau, is widely known among trekkers as the starting point for Fort Vasota. In recent years, the village has started to promote a variety of boating services to tourists. You can take a boat ride on Shivsagar Lake, a boat ride to Tapola (also known as Mini Kashmir), or a boat ride to the Nageshwar Shiva temple.
    4. The Satara Forest Department has worked hard to make tourists’ falls accessible, making the perfect location for an alternative Kaas plateau hike. The road from the entrance to the waterfall viewpoint is well-paved and crosses a few very beautiful woodlands. High st 200m. The path from the entrance to the waterfall view point is well paved with some very beautiful woodland views. 

    We will travel to Kaas Pathar via bus/traveler/car depending on the batch size.

      positive review  well, organisers are very nice. I had got late and had to come on my own and I couldn't find the place and kept irritating them every minute but they replied patiently shared directions and didn't frown when I arrived 😅. Arrangements were pretty exotic, getting group time and personal time as well.
