Being in Goa, to experience monsoon took a twist when we heard about Amboli. We departed from Goa in the morning to Amboli, Via Sawantwadi. The road up hill started to become vibrant, as mist and fog along with drizzling started. There are many a waterfalls enroute, and the Amboli falls was in its majestic might. One should not miss...

This lovely micro hill station has lot more to offer than the sunset point and the famous waterfall. One can find Sambhars in the local forest park itself. Just two kms from the city center, one can spot bisons. Bird watchers have plenty to spot ranging from bulbuls, sunbirds, grey hornbills to water birds. Lot of predators including leopards also...

Visited Amboli during these Diwali holidays on Oct. 21 & 22, on way to Tarkarli. It's a small, very peaceful, calm hill station in South Maharashtra and not at all crowded, must say. It was still surrounded by Greens all around. Some beautful points worth visiting are - Mahadevgad Point, Kavlesad Point, Hiranyakeshi Temple, Sunset Point, Rajwada and Amboli Waterfalls.... More

This is the wettest place in Maharashtra and one of the wettest places in India. It is really green and soothing to the eyes. Luckily, the place is still relatively unspoilt and one can enjoy walks to Parikshit Point, Mahadevgad Point, Shirgaonkar Point though I did not go to Parikshit this time (Oct. 2014) because it was still raining and...

Amboli, situated on the ghats , is situated ideally at the edge of Maharashtra and is frequented as a picnic spot on the hills from Karnataka as well. The beauty of the dense rainforest cannot be missed, a few days there refreshes you beyond expectation. Walk the tracks, view the various natural waterfalls and all the vegetation. The time we...
