  • Trip introduction

    Your visit to the Kaas plateau combines a short trek through fields of flowers and bushes with a visit to the cooling waters of Thoseghar Waterfall. After the months of monsoon irrigate the Kaas plateau with rain water, a unique natural ecosystem develops with the plateau coming alive with blooming, wild flowers. You'll get to see brightly coloured, rare species of flowers like the purple Karvi flowers, pink Balsam flowers and yellow Smithia and Sonki flowers among many more. You'll also visit the Thoseghar Waterfall that cascades down the hills of Western Ghats from an elevation of 650 feet to form a calm and quiet pool at the bottom.

    This trek to Kaas Plateau is perfect for fit beginners as well as experienced trekkers since it only requires walking for only 1-2 hours.

    Destination

    Located inside the protected reserve of the Koyna Wildlife Sanctuary, the Kaas Plateau is easily accessible by a 1-hr drive from Satara. The plateau attracts thousands of nature lovers after every monsoon season. Declared a UNSECO world heritage site, the plateau is home to several rare and beautiful species of wild flowers.

    The Thoseghar Waterfall is a scenic spot located close to the plateau. Secluded from the throngs of tourists, this little paradise is hidden inside a heavily forested area in the hills of the Western Ghats.
