KAAS PLATEAU: A wonderful outing to explore the colourful world of flowers … valley of flowers in Maharashtra  where hundreds of varieties of wild flowers of all colours which blooms in Mid August – Sept end (Da Best Time) … 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. … These carpets change colors almost every week depending on the dominant flowers during that time.

SAJJANGAD: Samarth Ramdas lived for long time @ Sajjangad, a small hillock near Satara. He breathed his last here and devotees worship his mausoleum here. This is an important centre of worship for the Ramdasi sect. Ramdas swami remains an inspiration for the technique he developed in infusing Nationalism and Dharmic devotion among ordinary people across the country by his concept of Hanuman temple, akhaada and a Paathashaalain every village. His emphasis on Rashtra chintana along with spiritualsadhana is more relevant today than it was anytime before.

THOSEGAR Waterfall: Thoseghar is very famous for it’s high Waterfalls. one of which is around 500 meters tall. Thoseghar is a wonderful place for nature lovers. These Waterfalls are very attractive and creates a loud noise in the calm nature.

KALYANGAD: is also known as Nandgiri fort. This fort was built by king Bhoj-II of Shilahar dynasty as mentioned in the copper plate inscription found in Satara.This fort appears to be built in between 1178 to 1209. It appears from many copper plate inscriptions of Shilahar kings that they gave many donations to Jain people. It has been proved that this fort is built by Shilahar Kings, as many statues of Lord Parshvanath are found in the cave on Kalyangad. In 1673 Shivaji Maharaj conquered Satara and surrounding regions. Kalyangad became a part of his territory. After Shivaji, the administration of Kalyangad went into the hands of Pratinidhis (representatives). Later, conflicts arose between Peshvas and Pratinidhis. The fort was taken over by Peshwa. In 1818 general Prisler brought this fort under British control.
