Gaganbawda 1/undefined by Tripoto


Prasad Guram
Gaganbawada is situated on the sahyadri range in the western ghats, it also has a very famous fort Gagangad near it. Gaganbawada, though only 55 km from Kolhapur, is non developed and hilly area of the district. It is a place that gets the maximum rainfall during rainy season. This Ghat is on threshold of famous Karul Ghat & Bhuibawada Ghat.Perhaps, the only place having two ghats originating at a single place but going towards different directions, one towards Talere-Kankavali (Karul Ghat) and another towards Kharepatan-Rajapur (Bhuibawada Ghat). The Kolhapur district boundary ends immediately after Gaganbawada and Sindhudurg District starts just at the beginning of Karul Ghat and Bhuibawada Ghat. This Ghat connects transport between Konkan and Kolhapur and the quality of road is good. Entire ghat’s maintenance is taken care by the administration of Vaibhavwadi Tehsil of Sindhudurg.This ghat is extremely beautiful and scenic in monsoon season. Tourists come here to enjoy the weather. One cannot stop himself to stop the car and enjoy the view during rainy season. If you really want to enjoy the view you must visit this mystic place in monsoon. Once you reach the top you get the beautiful view of massive greenland of Konkan. This selfie was taken from the top of the Ghat.
