Soo.. Kaas !! Ever heard of it ? No ?

Kaas Plateau !! It is also known as “Kaas Pathar” in the local language is a plateau situated in the Western Ghat Sahyadri range, 22 kilometers from Satara city in Maharashtra state of India and is known for various types of wild flowers which bloom during August-September every year. The name Kaas originates from Kaasa tree (Elaeocarpus glandulosus).
There is a solitary magic in the air as the monsoon sweeps across Maharashtra. As it drizzles , the dry-brown countryside magically upturns into shades of green soothing your senses , tranquillizing you . Nourished by the rain gods, the fields glisten with variant colored flower crops of over 850 species , the mountains glow with a velvet patina, waterfalls cascade down lush mountain faces and rivers shimmer like silver ribbons. As the plants grow, a fascinating phenomenon of mass blooming works out and their ephemeral presence makes Kaas a destination that a visitor can never have enough of ! Nature lovers who visit Kaas repeatedly during the season are invariably thrilled to see the ‘flower carpets’ change colors at different points in time, different varieties of flowers dominate the landscape. It is on account of the unique beauty and rich biodiversity of the area that Kaas Plateau was recently designated as one of the 39 sites in Western Ghats included in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. UNESCO’s World Heritage Committee, at its 36th. It is the perfect place for nature lovers to zip-up their windcheaters, put on their trekking shoes and set off on a scenic trail. The most spectacular spot to witness the metamorphosis ushered in by the monsoons in Maharashtra is Kaas Plateau.
