For all you nature lovers from Maharashtra,I have some interesting information for you.If you have always wanted to go to Uttaranchal and see its  Valley of Flowers but haven’t been able to go because of the distance,don’t fret…Maharashtra has its very own “Kaas Plateau” which is now also listed as a World heritage site.

Kaas Plateau situated in the Sahyadris in Western ghats is its prettiest best when visited between August to October wherein the whole plateau looks like a magnificent carpet of flowers.There are around 175 species of flowers found here which bloom for 2-3 weeks and attract many photographers,tourist,scientists and nature lovers.

Kaas is 3 hours road trip from Pune and an hour from Mahableshwar and hence can be easily covered as a day trip.
