21st September 2014
Dear OffBeaters ,
We invite you to a nature trail to the most colorful plateau, Kaas plateau on 21st September 2014.
Type : Flower plateau in satara
Height : 3000 ft above msl approx
Grade : Nature Trail
Base Village : Kaas
People who are keen about nature, flora and fauna this is the place for you.
Situated at 25 km from the satara city, Kaas is the place where 100s of varieties of flowers blossom in this season turning the plateau into beds of different colours. It looks like carpets of flowers laying on the ground, yellow carpets of Smithia and Sonki flowers, Pink carpets of Balsam, Purple carpets of Karvi and many more….. The color of the carpets keeps on changing with time depending on the dominant flowers at the time.
Looking over the water catchment area of the huge koyna Dam, it blends with the lush green forest in the protected area.
The best place to appreciate natures beauty, and and heaven for macro photographers, its a must visit place for all nature lovers.
Wide availability of flowers, nectar attract insects which feed on them and they attract birds which feed on them. Birds like Crested Buntings, Malabar Crested Larks, Oriental White-eyes, Bonelli’s Eagle and commonly sighted at Kaas.

Instead of visiting the crowded places with loads of picnickers like Thoseghar waterfall, sajjangad ect we would rather prefer to visit pateshwar, an offbeat location, scenic and isolated from crowd.
