Kaas - The Flowering plateau, Satara, Maharashtra.

Kaas is a plateau in western ghats situated near Satara city. This is just 120km from Pune by road.
The plateau is famous for the flowering season that starts at the end of the monsoon showers.
The plateau gives a feeling as such someone has spread the different colored carpets on the green floor.
The flowering season lasts just over a month and one can witness very unique flowers here and some of them are endemic.
I had got very limited time of few hours and was little late to reach. I wish to come back here, soon !!!

Equipment: Canon 5D Mark II, Canon 400D, Canon 24-105mm, Sigma 150mm F2.8 Macro.
