Where to Stay: As it was a one day trip so did not stay. But if any our member want to spent a day then there are various option available in Satara. Also there are some resorts which is on the way to Kas.
Ideal period to visit: Best period to visit Kas pathar is second half of September to first week of Octomber (As learnt from forest guards at kas.). It is heaven for nature lovers.

Also you have to left your vehicle at parking area just before 3 kms from kas and from there you have to board on ST bus with Rs.5 ticket per head. Parking Charges are extra.(which i didnt pay)
Disclaimer: I am not a professional photographer so bear me if the photo quality is not good. I will post photos sequentially from leaving my home to Kas pathar. So real kas pathar photos will come at later stages.
