I just thought to share - once a year nature gives us wonderful performance - Plateau of flowers - Kaas Plateau. Kaas is a beautiful valley 22 kms from Satara and Protected content from Vashi (Navi Mumbai). The pleatue gets full of wild flowers after the monsoon. There are some nearby lakes. Full information and photos: Protected content
If anyone up to and has car, you can go organize and go there tomorrow or next weekend (after that it will be over). It's better to go by company as the total fuel (Petrol) requirement for a single car would be around 43 liters, approx Rs 3,400/- and toll + parking charges (around Rs 600/-) . My friends organize road trip, but it's kind of private trip. However if any photo-hunters/ nature lovers could join their hands - you can do this trip by yourself!
