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.
