The Kaas Plateau also known as the "Kaas Pathar" is situated in the Western Ghat Sahyadri range, 22 kilometers from Satara city. The name Kaas originates from Kaasa tree (Elaeocarpus glandulosus). Leaves of this tree turn green to red as they mature. It gets white flowers only for 15 days in the month of March. The area of the plateau is approximately 1,000 hectares. The plateau is full of wild flowers during the months of August and September. These flowers bloom on their own and stay for about 2–3 weeks (depending on the monsoon and other weather factors). Recently it has been declared as Biodiversity World heritage site by The United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) . The place has more than 850 different species of flowers and other plants including Orchids, Karvy and carnivorous plants such as Drosera Indica. It falls under the Sahyadri Sub Cluster of Western Ghats which is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
