Kaas Plateau trek in Maharashtra, India

About Kaas Plateau

If you've always wanted to visit the Valley of Flowers in Uttarakhand, but never had the time, then Kaas Plateau, the Valley of Flowers of the Sahyadris, is just right for you. The bountiful Kaas Plateau is known for its beautiful and lush plain, situated on the high hills of Sahyadri ranges in the Western Ghats, at a distance of 22 kms from the city of Satara.

While this open plateau is pretty throughout the year, during flowering season, it looks like it has been carpeted with flowers. The valley is named after the Kaasa tree that grows here. Thanks to the abundant flowers, you'll also spot tiny birds and beautiful iridescent insects in the foliage. This is one of the reasons that this region is so popular with nature enthusiasts and is a World Natural Heritage Site. Bird-watchers come from around the region to observe the flora and fauna here. For adventure-seekers, the Kaas Plateau trek provides a wide array of opportunities, including trekking and camping.

About the Kaas Plateau trip

The trek is not hard, and is a great option for first-timers and nature-lovers looking for a day out! It is a pristine paradise for botanists, researchers, naturalists and photographers. The Kaas plateau is home to over 150 species of flowers, including 40 that are found only on the Kaas Plateau.

Route to the Kaas Plateau

Start your journey early, book a private vehicle from Mumbai or Pune and travel by road to the city of Satara. Freshen up at your hotel, and drive to the Kaas plateau, which is about 20 kms from Satara. Take your time to explore the area, and hike to various points to see the different sights. If time permits, take a detour and visit the Bamnoli Lake, or hike up to the beautiful Thoseghar waterfalls. After lunch, you'll begin your return journey back home. Some people like to spend the night in Satara, so that they can visit the Kaas Plateau at different times of the day.

Best time to visit the Kaas Plateau

The best time to visit the Kaas Plateau is during the monsoons, ideally during mid- August. During this time, the Kaas plateau comes to life, and all the dormant flowers burst into radiant life. Don’t forget to bring your camera along on your Kaas plateau, for the prettiest pictures of a gorgeous plateau filled with flowers, mist, and tinkling streams.
