Most think of Uttarakhand when they think of a valley full of flowers, but when you’re in Mumbai or Pune, there’s closer home. The Kaas Plateau is Maharashtra’s own flower-filled valley, which comes alive with the monsoons between August and October each year. Over 850 species of flowers thrive and bloom here each monsoon, many of which are rare and endangered. This year the site has been open to visitors since early August, but September is a great time to enjoy the flowers in full bloom. You’re likely to see orchids, wildflowers, carnivorous plants, and a variety of fascinating creatures that you may not have seen before. Online booking and registration is mandatory to visit Kaas and once there, beware of the fragile environment.
