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.
