In the quiet, far away from the city port district of Ratnagiri in Maharashtra, lies Chiplun, the city that offers you time among mango groves next to the beautiful lake, Vashishti. This town is most known for its white sand beaches and beautiful mango and cashew groves by the Vashishti river.
Chiplun, meaning 'The abode of Lord Parashurama' got its name because of the famous temple it houses. Chiplun also happens to be an industrial town and most people coming to this side tend to go to the River view resort, a popular getaway on weekends. The sunsets that can be seen from both the Vashishti river and Koyna Dam are so attractive that people book rooms to wake up to the sight of the brilliant scenery. Chiplun falls as an important station on the Konkan railway route for trains heading to Mumbai from Goa and South India. This gives you all the more reason to stop by at this little heavenly place for a breath of fresh air before you greet the city of dreams, Mumbai and all the chaos that comes with it. Travellers describe their experience here as the perfect picnic spot, with the scent of mangoes wafting through the air.
