Amboli lies in the Sahyadri hills in the Sindhudurg district of Maharashtra. It is the last hill station of Maharashtra before the plains of Goa begin and is a relatively unexplored one.
Amboli receives the highest rainfalls in Maharashtra and thus remains pleasant all round the year. It attracts a lot of weekend visitors from Goa and Belgaum.
- Though hotels are available even during peak seasons, it is best to enquire beforehand especially if you plan to stay for a few days.- While taking nature walks around the place beware of leeches, the place is plenty with them. Make sure to carry ointments and a small first aid kit just in case.
It's a pretty good place for a weekend hangout. There are great views which can make up a great background for cover photos ;) The best part was the waterfall which flows on the steps made of stones just besides it especially in monsoon. It's slippery at places, but there's a railing to hold on to. A great long ride from Belgaum and bonus points of the fog if visited on bikes (Roads are risky, but worth it)

Natural paradise. Great site for trekking. Can be visited throughout the year.
The roads are not in a good condition, thus disrupting transportation at times. The trekking trails near Amboli is teeming with leeches, hence proper precaution needs to be taken.
This is a great getaway for those living in and around Maharashtra. Also perfect for people looking for trekking trails in Maharashtra.
Amboli is a bit difficult to reach as it can be directly reached via road only. (Read More)
