"Pathfinders"Tour to 'KAAS Plateau' at Satara on 1st Sept 2013

Hello,

Pathfinders invites you to the tour to ‘KAAS Plateau’ at Satara on 1st Sept 2013.

Short Info:-

Kaas is a plateau of flowers located 26 km away from Satara. Recently this site is declared as a world heritage site due to excellent biodiversity present over here. Apart from numerous varieties of wild flowers (some of which are endemic to Kaas only) this biodiversity site also shelters many insects, beautiful birds, amphibians, reptiles and some major mammalian species.
Visiting this heaven on earth is always an outstanding experience.

In monsoon the whole area transforms into an unbelievable carpets of flowers like yellow carpets of Smithia and Sonki flowers, Pink carpets of Balsam, Purple carpets of Karvi etc….

It is a dream destination not only for avid botanists but also for those who appreciate nature. These carpets change colors almost every week depending on the dominant flowers during that time.
Kass plateau and the surrounding area has a very good birdlife with good sightings of Crested Buntings, Malabar Crested Larks, Oriental White-eyes, and Bonelli’s Eagle.
