One of the favourite hangout place of Kolhapur & Belgaum people. It is the maximum raining place in Maharashtra. Has many places to visit. It will take an entire day to cover all the spots. Be aware of Drinkers, also roads in Maharashtra are tragedy.

This is the only hill station of Konkan having rich heritage of mountains, greenery, waterfalls and colder atmosphere. The hotels offers good stay options at economical rates. Must visit during rainy season.
