Kaas Pathar is a plateau in the Satara district of Maharashtra. It’s known for its carpets of flowers that bloom at the end of the monsoon season. The best time to visit is during the monsoon months of August, September and October. The plateau is made of volcanic rocks and is part of the Western Ghats biosphere. It is home to over 1,500 plant species, including 450 wildflower species. 33 of these species are endangered.

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.
