Best Things To Do in Satara

Satara is the old capital of the Maratha Empire of the 17th century, which gives it a weighty significance of being a rich historical site in Maharashtra. The name of the city is taken from the seven hills surrounding the city (Satara) providing with numerous tourist destinations and trekking sites. The seven hills bordering this magnificent city in Maharashtra are Ajinkyatara, Sajjangad, Yawateshwar, Jarandeshwar, NakdichaDongar, KitlichaDongar, and PedhyachaBhairoba.

 River Krishna and River Venna's meeting point is close to this city giving it a picturesque backdrop. Because of the best things to do in Satara and around it, tourists from both Pune and Mumbai flock here on weekends to replenish their system with a wholesome short trip. Due to its location, Satara’s climate is a major crowd puller, and when combined with the lush landscape around, the city produces some of the amazing tourist destinations hard to miss.

 The infamous indentation of Satara known as the ‘Valley of Flowers’ in the Kaas Plateau and is just 25km from Satara.It is looked upon as one of the major attractions. The valley got its name from the numerous wildflowers. Apart from these natural charmers, there are forts and palaces that bring the city’s architectural creativity in the limelight.

Mumbai mainly accesses Satara such that you could easily avail the train or the bus route. Since Satara and Mumbai are well connected, the availability of renting cars and trains are in abundance and people do not face any issues visiting here. Maybe this is the reason why people so frequently flock here whenever they manage the tiniest time span for an escape.

 The best things to do in Satara are countless, yet one must never miss the chance to trek and camp in at least any one of the hills here.

There were a lot of interesting activities and as all the group members took active part, the fun for the day just got doubled. Nature walk and river crossing on the first day was an eye-opener to the immaculate beauty of the nature. Trekking on the second day also gave such an experience.

The Wai camping was a brilliant experience that I encountered in my life. The camping experience was exquisite and brilliant to say the least. My most favourite aspect was that the camping had a swim which was inexplicable experience. It was really a soul thirst quenching swim that we had there. This camping is enjoyed if you go with a gang of friends. Especially, if you are still in college, then this camp is a must vacation. We were three grown-up adults who had this much fun, if you are a bunch of youngsters, you get to enjoy even more as with this camp, it is more the merrier.

Smitten by nature. Yes that's excatly what I can say about this awesome place. Little did we know that our overnight campaing at Kaas Plateau would leave an indelible impact on our minds. This spectacular floral paradise situated in the Western Ghat Sahyadri range, 22 kilometers from Satara city in Maharashtra riddled with an occasional welcome gust of wind refreshed our minds like anything. With a campfire going on in one of the comfy places two of my friends and I perched ourselves in the cradle of nature and indulged in music and an ethereal natural beauty like never before.

Among everything we got to do and enjoy in this amazing camping adventure, I liked the raft building activity the most. I mean, there was everyone so much involved into it and were supporting their teams in the best ways they could. We were given only some barrels, log pieces, tubes, ropes and strings to make the rafts. Everyone's creativity was at the peak during the activity. Even the evening barbeque and the musical sojourn was also very heart warming. Both the days were equally exciting.

Kaas Plateau Sightseeing, Satara has been an amazing getaway for us. Being in Mumbai, we have a lot of getaway options, but with a couple of friends coming from Pune, we wanted something midway to both the places. So, Satara was pretty much a favourable option. Overall, the experience of sightseeing was awesome. The planning was professional and we loved being part of this wonderful trip. Even cost wise it was indeed very cost effective.
