Kaas Plateau is also is known as the "Kaas Pathar" is situated in the Western Ghats Sahyadri range, 22 km from Satara city in the state of Maharashtra, India. The name Kaas originates from Kaasa tree. As the leaves of this tree mature, they turn from green to red. Recently this site was declared as WORLD HERITAGE SITE due to excellent biodiversity present over here. Apart from numerous varieties of wildflowers (some of which are endemic to Kaas only) this biodiversity site also shelters many insects, beautiful birds, amphibians, reptiles, and some major mammalian species. Visiting this heaven on earth is always an outstanding experience.
