Amboli Hill Station

Amboli is a hill station engulfed in peace and tranquility. Situated at an altitude of 690 m, Amboli lies in the Sindhudurg district of Maharashtra. This is the last mountain resort before the coastal plain of the southern ranges of the Sahyadri Hills. On one side of Amboli lies the Konkan coast, the other three flanked by handsome looking valleys.

Amboli receives an annual rainfall of nearly 750 centimeters making it the wettest place in Maharashtra. Due to such a heavy rainfall, the steep hills of Amboli are enveloped with very dense forest. The unforgettable bird eye view of the Konkan beach atop Amboli hills attracts thousands of tourists here.

Best time to visit Amboli is during winter when the hills are swapped with panoramic beauty of gushing waterfalls down the hills. Amboli is a perfect destination for relaxing and getting lost among the misty mountains.

The other attractions of Amboli are Hiranya Keshi, Nagatta Falls, Mahadev and Narayan Gad, Shirgaonkar, Sea view Point and the Bauxite Mines. Hiranya Keshi is a famous fishing ground where hours could be spent in solitude and quietness. Nagatta Falls offer a perfect picnic place. With a breathtaking view of Nagatta Falls, this is a perfect place to escape with your family.

Sea View Point offers the most wonderful view one has ever seen. The long stretch of the mountains and lands extending to the Konkan coast is an experience to be cherished life long.

Nearest railway station is at Sawantwadi which is at a distance of 28km and airport at Belgaum which is 64 km from Amboli. By road Amboli is 549 km from Mumbai.
