Snuggling coyly, in the southern ranges of the Sahyadri
Amboli at an altitude of 690 m is the last mountain resort before the
coastal highlands settle, with a sigh, to form flat beaches. Visit
numerous view points for a pleasant view of the lush hills and fertile
plain. Seaview Point offers a rare view of the land all the way to the
golden Konkan coast. You can spend hours angling for a fish at Hiranya
Keshi or picnic at Nagatta Falls, Mahadev Gad and Narayan Gad. Another
pleasant and different expedition is a visit to the Bauxite Mines, 10
kms away. For a few days of isolation, Amboli is an ideal resort.
Taxis and richskaws are available, though horseback and bicycles could
add to the feeling of getting away from it all.
Amboli has a cool and invigorating climate -- a welcome respite in
