The Kaas Plateau also known as the “Kaas Pathar” which is situated in the Western Ghat Sahyadri range, 22 kilometers from Satara city in Maharashtra state of India. The name Kaas originates from Kaasa tree (Elaeocarpus glandulosus). Leaves of this tree turn green to red as they mature.
The plateau is full of wild flowers during the month September. Recently it has been declared as Biodiversity World Heritage Site by The United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (Unesco).
Kaas lake is surrounded by dense forests and lies between Sajjangad fort and the Kanher Dam.
