The Kaas Plateau and Lake are located 22 km away from the Satara district and attract all kinds of tourists. A popular tourist destination, this site is also known as the ‘Plateau of Flowers’. Lying at a dizzying altitude of 3,500 ft, the Kaas Plateau has been conferred the title of World Heritage Site for Biodiversity by the UNESCO.
The Koyna Wildlife Sanctuary can be seen from here. More than 400 species and varieties of flora, like plants, herbs and orchids can be found here.
The Kaas Talav (Lake) is the main source of drinking water for the city of Satara. This spot makes for a nice visit especially in the post-monsoon period.
