Kaas Pathar or Kaas Plateau, also known as the ‘Valley of Flowers’ in the state of Maharashtra is now an immensely popular tourist destination. Thanks to social media, and numerous travel blogs, like mine featuring this destination with fascinating photographs attracting people from every corner. These days almost every state has its own Valley of Flowers, in previous days the one that was known to all was that of the Uttrakhand. I stick to my state and share my 2019 experience of visiting Kass Pathar – The Valley of Flowers.
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.
