“Kaas Plateau” is situated in the Western Ghats. Kaas plateau of flowers, a few kilometers ahead of the Satara in Maharashtra.

Kaas has been awarded a “UNESCO World Heritage Site” tag for its stunning biodiversity. From pretty orchids to the wild and carnivorous drosera indica, there are more than 850 species of plants that bloom only in September, or if you’re lucky, till early October. September is the best time to visit the Kaas plateau.

At other times of the year, the plateau is covered with soil and grassy patches. Just don’t visit expecting tall, flushing meadows; the flowers here are mostly carpeted along the ground and rarely rise more than a foot. And yet the sight of a million tiny flowers is something you won’t forget in a hurry.

Need another reason? The “Kaas Lake” is thankfully unspoiled and makes for a great picnic spot.

Thoseghar Waterfall

Thoseghar Falls is a popular waterfall located at Thoseghar village in the Satara district of Maharashtra. It is one of the top waterfalls in Maharashtra and one of the highest waterfalls in India. Thoseghar falls is among the most popular Satara places to visit.

Thoseghar Falls is famous for its serenity, calm, and quiet natural surroundings. It is a wonderful place where one can enjoy the beauty of nature. There is a picnic area and a newly constructed platform, which gives a good view of the waterfall. There is no way to enter the falls but one can go to the starting point of the falls.

Sajjangad Fort

Sajjangad fort is located 3,350 feet above sea level in the midst of the Western Ghats. Sajjangad is an ancient fort and a pilgrimage site. It is a protected monument. Thousands of history enthusiasts and devotees throughout the year visit the fort.
Samarth Ramdas Swami, one of the most prominent spiritual mentors in western India is believed to have stayed here for a long time. He also breathed his last at the site. The hilly fort hosts a Samarth Ramdas Swami temple.

HISTORICAL IMPORTANCE
Sajjangad fort was earlier known as ‘Aaswalgad’ due to the high count of bears inhabiting the area.
The fort was built by Bahamani emperors between 1347-1527 AD. It was later conquered by Adil Shah in the 16th century. Mughals eventually attacked the fort and brought it under their control. The fort then came under the rule of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. It was renamed Sajjangad after Shivaji Maharaj requested Samarth Ramdas to set up his permanent abode at the fort.

SURROUNDINGS
Along with its historical and spiritual significance, Sajjangad also offers breathtaking views of nearby villages and Satara city. It is a preferred spot for photographers who often visit the place to capture the catchment area of Urmodi dam and the beautiful surrounding landscapes. One can click animated pictures of squirrels and monkeys in the area. Brahmini kites, Indian Bulbul, Indian bee-eater, and parrots are commonly sighted here.
