About

About Kaas Plateau

Kaas Plateau also known as the "Kaas Pathar" is situated in the Western Ghats Sahyadri range, 22 km from Satara city in the state of Maharashtra, India. The name Kaas originates from Kaasa tree. As the leaves of this tree mature, they turn from green to red.

During the flowering season from mid August to October, almost every inch of the plateau is bedecked with flowers of various colors and sizes. In fact, recently, Kaas has been declared as a Biodiversity World Heritage Site by The United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) due to the floral diversity found here.

Major Attractions

  • Kaas Pathar- Plateau of Flowers
  • Rich Biodiversity of Kaas- Endangered / Rare / Endemic / Common Species
  • Plateau changes its colour after every 15- 20 days, as the cycle of flowering plants progresses with the monsoon from August to October.
  • Brief on the IUCN Red List at Kaas.
  • Local cuisines to keep us energetic throughout the event

      For Prabhalmachi and Kalavantin Trek (20-21 January, 2018)..This was my 2nd trek and 1st one of my other friends..The Organizers are very hospitable and friendly.. Right from beginning, they made sure all of us didn't face any problem.. They arranged very delicious food for us..The camping facility too was up to the mark.. Throughout the trek, they made sure none of the participants were ignored plus provided adequate safety measures.. I'd recommend everyone to select Mumbai Trekizens for all their upcoming treks
