Chalkewadi Windmills Farms is quite a popular destination near Pune in the Satara district of Maharashtra. People tend to flock here during the monsoon to experience the lush nature and during the winters and also at the weekends for a day trip or a picnic. This was what I had done before. (Read about my previous visit to Chalkewadi Windmill Farms.) This time it was so different. We drove through the windmills for miles and miles. Every turn on the significantly straight road gave us some incredible views. I am here with this post to share with you my visual experience.
“I felt you push, I heard you call,
I could not see yourself at all”.
The Wind is what I am writing about.
“Who has seen the wind?
Neither I nor you:
But when the leaves hang trembling,
The wind is passing through.”
What better place than Chalkewadi Windmill Farm to feel the wind?
The long stretches of undulating meadows, ablaze and dappled in delicate blooms. A dreamland – colourful and astonishing Kaas Plateau. Spread over an area of around 1000 hectare, this highland provides a breathtaking expanse amidst the sprawling lawn, though not green but, mottled. Kaas Pathar, as know locally is a plateau in the Sahyadri range in Satara district of Maharashtra. It gets draped with a variety of wildflowers every year, resembling a canvas with myriad hues.
