Thoseghar Waterfall & Kaas Plateau (Satara)

We were a group of 6 MBA Friends, wanting to go on a short weekend trip, considering the monsoon season of 2012. Having rained for quite sometime, a little prior to what I thought was the normal time, we felt this can be a good trek. Upon a lot of discussions and deliberations (even for such small journey), the girls finally agreed to this place THOSEGHAR WATERFALL and KAAS PLATEAU, near Satara town in Maharashtra State. In and around Pune, post-rains is always a good time to go nearby. “Nearby” as per my definition is any place in the vicinity of 150 Kms. Nothing less than this 🙂

Some Pics of Thoseghar Waterfall

Thoseghar Waterfall & Kaas Plateau both are popular spots with tourists from Mumbai, Pune, Kolhapur and nearby places within the 360 Degree ambit would like to visit. They are located around 20 kms from the main Satara Town, towards the beginning of Konkan belt. Best time to go there is obviously in the rainy season, preferably in the month of August.

USP of the Spot

Thoseghar Waterfall, as the name suggests, is known for the lush green surroundings, an area entirely covered with huge trees and the beautiful hazy waterfalls during the rainy season and the kind of haze that gets formed due to the deep waterfall. Rains are pretty heavy in this part and it only adds to the natural beauty. There is also a pretty good construction made, platforms created for tourists to walk safely, without getting into the mud and also helping them in looking at the waterfalls. Some restaurants nearby are also available for having snacks, tea or coffee and even meals. Similarly Kaas Plateau is also well known for tourists coming over to see a vast area ad-measuring around 10 kms with beautiful flowers of different colours, sizes and shapes that can only help you wonder about their beauty. The overall beauty of the natural world, the temples, tourists attraction points are definitely something you wouldn’t want to miss. A lot of these pics exactly depict how the entire land would turn into…

How To Reach

The best way of course is by your own transport, a car or a bike is the best. However, public transport is also available. Following is the distance scale from various points:

  • From Satara: 20 Kms
  • From Pune: 130 Kms
  • From Kolhapur: 150 Kms

Pity that when we went, we weren’t able to see the variety of flowers. May be some other time !! Till then, this is how it actually looks like 🙂
