Kaas plateu , also known as Valley of flowers is situated 25 km from Satara city in Maharashtra. It has become part of UNESCO world heritage site in 2012 . The entire grassland turns into valley of flowers during monsoon season, August to early October. Distance from Mumbai/Pune Kaas is located 25 km from Mahabaleshwar and around 30 km from Satara in Maharashtra. The distance between Pune and Kaas Plateau is 136 km and it can be reached in 2.5 to 3.5 hours via NH4. Its distance from Mumbai is 278 km and takes around 5 hours to reach by road via the Mumbai-Pune Expressway and then NH4. The entire valley was covered with the sheet of greenery and different colorful varieties of flowers making the place looks totally amazing. Certain parts of plateau has been covered with barrier.Reason being ,the area has some special variety of flora which needs to be preserved Best time to go: August to October. Check kaas website for further exact details of blooming How to Reach-The plateau is just 22 km from Satara city and can be reached through a hired taxi or public buses - there are a few state buses that ply on the route from Satara to Kaas Why Kaas: Full of biodiversity ,truly a paradise for nature lover and for those interested in flora. A Perfect weekend gateway during monsoon

Kaas with full bloom colorful flowers is the eye pleasing sight to behold & Satara to Kaas route is one of the best picturesque journey in Maharashtra. I travelled from Pune for following one day Satara trip on 15th Nov. 2019 1. Kaas Plateau (without flower bloom) 2. Thoseghar Waterfall (waterfall is still there) 3. Sajjangadh Fort The helpful tips & information on Kaas visit is below: A) Best Time To Visit i) 15th Aug to 7th of Oct. (Season of full bloom flower) Season time may vary few days plus minus depending on flower bloom. This year the flower bloom was very less & also for very less duration. ii) Oct to July (Without flower bloom) B) Entry Fee i) 15th Aug to 7th Oct. (Peak season time) Free for: a) Kids below 12 years b) Senior Citizen above 65 years (Age proof ID required) c) Working soldiers d) Ex Soldiers & their spouse Rs.100 for rest all not in above category ii) Oct to July Rs.20/- for rest all category C) Ticket System i) 15th Aug to 7th Oct NB: Only 3000 visitors allowed per day during this peak season time. Online booking compulsory for following time slots of Saturday, Sunday & public holidays: a) 7 am to 11 am (1000 visitors) b) 11 am to 3 pm (1000 visitors) c) 3 pm to 6 pm (1000 visitors). To report between 3 pm to 4 pm mandatory. NB: Cancellation of Kaas visit not allowed under any circumstances Kaas visit confirmation print out receipt to be compulsory produced at the entry gate If you go there directly without online booking during season time they may issue the ticket after assessing the crowd situation. ii) Oct to July You will get the ticket at Gate no. 3 i.e main entry gate. D) Free Parking i) During Peak Season Time There are two parking areas: a) Couple of km before Kaas entry gate b) Couple of km after Kaas entry gate Bus facility will be there from parking area to entry gate & vice a versa at Rs.10 each. ii) During off season Parking is allowed near the main entry gate E) Guide You can avail the guide service at Rs.100 F) Toilet Facility There are few portable toilets for gents & ladies at the main entry gate. Photo of same is attached in this review. D) Food Restaurant Nothing available near the main entry gate. On route from Satara to Kaas there are resorts, hotels & restaurants located on beautiful sights. At Kaas lake which is at few minutes drive from main entry gate, there are few hotels, restaurants available. F) Distance From Pune Pune to Satara 100 km Satara to Kaas 25 km G) Directions You have two lootmaar (Road Tolls) center of govt. on this route. i) At Khed Shivapur - Rs.95 for one way & Rs.145 for two way ii) 15 km before Satara - Rs.70 one way & Rs.95 two way There are few patches on road in a very bad shape. It pinches thinking that we are paying toll but no action to make road good. It is more than a year it remains as it is. On reaching Satara try to avoid the road thru city as it is crowded on account of road work in progress. Take help of locals for road thru outskirt. I used this option. You can make use of GPS. H) On Kaas Flower Plateau At the main entry gate there is a map of Kaas Plateau. I have attached it's photo in this review. It will be one of the most wonderful sight to see natural colorful flowers during peak season time. The mountain, valley & river view are also very good. There is a pond named Kumudini that bears lotus flowers. It is located adjacent to the road fencing of Kaas Mahabaleshar route. During off season, you can walk around the edges to see beautiful views of valley, mountains, rivers, lake etc. I have attached few photos in this review. I walked for more than 2 hours to cover the full area of Kaas during my visit. At couple of locations there are benches near the edges to sit relax & enjoy the view. You are allowed to take photos freely inside Kaas area. I) Kaas To Satara Route I was gone crazy on this route after seeing such a mind blowing picturesque views on both side of the road. On left side of road, Kanher dam & on right side of road, Urmodi dam are located. The mountains, valleys & dams views are amazingly impressive & striking. I was driving stopping, driving stopping, driving stopping at many locations on this route to capture the spectacular views in my camera. I have attached photos in this review. Those who love nature, this is the place for them. This is the first time a place in India made me follow this routine otherwise: i) Kandy to Ella train journey & local sightseeing road journey at Ella in Srilanka is the first place in my life that made me follow this routine i.e. stop drive, stop drive & ii) Mahe island road journey in Seychelles is the second place. J) My One Day Plan For Satara Trip Started at 8.15 am from Bibvewadi I visited first Kaas plateau from 12 noon to 2.30 pm. I visited Thoseghar from 4 pm to 4.30 pm I visited Sajjangadh Fort from 5.30 pm to 6.30 pm I started from Sajjangadh at 7 pm & reached Pune Bibvewadi at 9 pm by car. I missed Ajinkyatara Fort from my itinerary. If I would have started between 5 am to 6 am then surely I would have covered this too. Even though there is no flowers, I would surely recommend nature lovers for above one day trip on any day. Only make sure you start early between 6 am to 7 am.

This place is really as beautiful as everyone says it is. I loved everything about it. There are such pretty flowers, the sky is always stunning and the views so mesmerising. We stayed at villages nearby - had planned to camp but because of the rains, everything near water bodies was either flooded or had vegetation, and camping in Kaas is not allowed. But we found an amazing place right in front of a lake and all our woes went away!

Kaas Pathar is located approximately 30km from Satara. You can find tickets online or you can directly buy tickets on the spot. The best time to visit is in the month of September.Kaas Pathar is world heritage site. There are many types of flowers here on Kaas Pathar which grow naturally there. You can also visit Lotus lake fully covered with small white Lotus flowers. You have to walk 1-2 km to see Lotus lake. You cannot pick the flowers, it is not allowed. You can take pictures with your mobiles and cemeras but commercial photography is not allowed. You can get cucumber and butter milk sold by local people but I'll advise to take your own food with you. There are other spots around like Bamnoli river boating, Waterfall and windmill site you can try there. It is very good place to visit with friends and family. Visit once and let me know about your experience.
