A destination with pure and cold water

Walking 40 min from Kaas Plateau you can reach to this place. Its very good place to spend the quality time with our dear ones. Every age of people can visit this place. During monsoon season it looks more beautiful than our imagination. All lush green trees and tiny grass with colourful wild flowers a deadly combination one can see.The water was very cold and pure. When I visited that place, on lake there was only fog. I didn't get where the Kaas Lake ends because the lake water is so pure white colour and fog with white clouds gets all mixed. No one guess where the lake ends. Attached one pic too where you will get the situation. On left side of lake one can see the rare flowers which blooms on water, 1. 5 km from Kaas Lake you can also visit to Bhambavali Falls. But it's risky in monsoon. Only villagers know the way to reach that place if you asked them they will guide you. Marathi and Hindi you must need to know, to talk with local peoples.Best time to visit Monsoon (especially at sunrise and sunset time). Take raincoats while coming to this place during monsoons. And please don't throw any garbage near lake or plateau. There is only one place after Valley of Flowers, Uttarakhand in India.

Serene lake - beautiful and less crowd

For people who like to just sit down by the lake and enjoy their time in solitude, enjoy the nature, the sound of the wind and the water and the insects - this is the perfect place for them. This lake hasn't been commercialized - that means you won't find any facilities here - which also means that it's very clean and beautiful. Normally few people visit here. There are rarely shops here so you need to carry whatever food and beverages you want to, but make sure not to litter on the lake area.

Messy place because of irresponsible tourist

Tourists have messed up everything. People cleaning crockeries,throwing chicken bones in lake, lot's of bottle scrap around lake make it highly unsafe for kids as glass piece can hurt anybody's legs. On the top of it pople having costly suv's were cleaning the car in lake water- not sure wheather they got any eligibility to own 20 lacs car if they can't afford INR 100-200 for car wash.

Valley of Flowers

Mesmerizing Kaas worth paying a visit if on a visit to Mahabaleshwar or nearby sightseeing places. Valley of wild colorful flowers a photographers paradise. Best time to visit: Mid-September to October (immediately post monsoon) though occasional rains can play a spoil sport. Must visit for the scenic view and a breath of fresh air :)
