Kas Plateau

3 pink flowers on way to Kas plateau

What a beauty this place holds! Have you heard about the Valley of Flowers in the Himalayas in India? Kas plateau can be called the the Valley of Flowers of the Maharashtra state of India. It blooms with exclusive flowers every September. I went for a feast for my eyes on 20-September-2009, and took just breathtaking views of the heavenly place. Imagine how it feels to see a big natural process that occurs for just 20 days in a year! It's like seeing the GOD's showcase. To see the photos from there click Kas Plateau Photos.

The plateau is a muddy place that grows small flowering shrubs in monsoon. In the end of the monsoon, the shrubs give a bounty of flowers seemingly sprinkled by the almighty. Why don't I have a balloon to see it from above? Well, for now, you may enjoy the photographs taken from down on the surface.

I hope you will enjoy these magnificent flowers. I eagerly await your comments.

How to reach there?
On NH-4, reach Satara city. Ask anyone how to go to Kas. There's a road in Satara, up from the state transport bus stop. It reaches a place named Rajwada. Driving up, you reach a short tunnel. Don't go in, but take right. The road will take you to Kas. It's about 25 kms from the tunnel.

When to go?
From mid September to mid October, roughly.

Precautions:
Carry raincoats if you are on bikes. Take safety measures as the road is from deep valleys initially.

Food and stay:
Only a couple of very basic hotels on the road. Nothing nearby to the Kas plateau. Carry your own food if you need to.

Guide:
Contact me, and I will arrange a tour for you. Write to bvcblog@gmail.com. I do undertake private tours to beautiful, natural and ancient places in and around Pune.
