What Is It?

The most beautiful waterfall you will see in Maharashtra is a tiny road trip away from you, in a village called Thaseghar near Satara.

How Do I Get There?

To make this trip, you have a few choices. First, you may take a direct, non-stop bus from Mumbai to Satara which will drop you there in about 4.5-5.5 hours. Then you can make your way to the waterfall which is about 20km from Satara via rickshaw or bus.

Secondly, you may opt to rent a car and drive off directly to the destination on a road trip via the Pune-Bangalore national highway. That will take you about 4-5.5 hours too.

You could take the train from Mumbai to Satara too, but it is usually a very long, very slow journey and is the least recommended option of these three.

What’s To See?

This is a 1,000 foot-high waterfall which gushes and heaving flows down a rocky cliff. The best time to visit is in the midst of the monsoon between the months of July and November. There is a vantage point from above {after you climb quite a few steps} where you can click pictures with the waterfall in the background, after which the fresh green path leads to you to falls.

#LBBTip: Keep your best anti-skid shoes tightened up tight as the areas around the falls are {obviously} quite tricky. And don’t forget to eat the local food around.

So, We’re Saying…

Pack up your day’s food in a basket, and take off on a trip here either alone or after coercing a couple of friends into giving you company. They will thank you later.
