  13. About Thoseghar
  14. During the Monsoon season, as soon as the rain starts pouring in, the mind starts wandering about the places where nature is at its best. If your mind is wandering into Clean Lake, dark woods, mountains and waterfall then Thoseghar near Satara town is the place to be! This place is just one of the best creations of mother nature as it has not one or two but number of waterfalls, dense forest, mountains and clean lake all at one place!<br>


    From Pune you need to get going on the Pune-Satara National highway from Satara take a route towards Chalkewadi. Around 24 KM from Chalkewadi you will be at this heaven-like place! The drive from Satara to Chalkewadi to Thoseghar itself is so beautiful that i guarantee you will at least halt once to admire the beauty of the nature.


    When you reach at Chalkewadi you will find Thoseghar as sign posted. Around 1 km from Chalkewadi is the most exciting tourist spot of waterfall. To get down to the water falls and to be able to get the best view, you will need to get down around 15-20 steps and then you see 2 water falls, one around 15 meters high and the other around 500 meters! This view will surely  stunned you.


    But what's the fun if you come only to see it... folks, you need to get wet and for that you have to take a quick trek towards the small waterfall and enjoy the tremendous force of falling water. If you are real adventure loving person then you won't stop here, your mind will force you to go to the next big fall (500 meter). But for that, you will have to go through Chalkewadi and take a trip around the Thoseghar Lake of 1km (of course on your legs :) ) and reach to that giant waterfall.


    Cold weather, Quiet woods, few birds singing and the sound of waterfall, just make it a perfect place to visit during monsoon!


    One more attraction nearly 8KM from this spot is the wind-mill farm, where there are more than 100 wind-mills. Nature lovers would enjoy this place as just beyond this place there is an astonishing view of Koyana Valley! While enjoying the rains, forest, winds, waterfalls you can have hot local "Maharashtrian" food. This is just a perfect 1 day trip during monsoon, which we strongly recommend!
