Our journey started in scorching sun and heat of afternoon. The road to Kaas winds through hills and narrow roads going up. The road was guarded by sky touching hard basalt lava rock on one side and villages down the valleys on other side. Monsoon has relived the dry and thirsty terrain with lush green and wild flowers. You can enjoy a wide range to wild blooms indigenous to western ghats. As we ascended temperature dropped and clouds can be seen hugging the far away plateau tops. We stepped down from the bus in foggy and softly piercing mist plus rain droplets. White blanket above the ground was a retreat. Heavy cold breeze passing made us happy in ectasy.
Kaas, is spread over a wide area with flat ground and contrasting green and lava rocks. Flowers blooming here are indigenous to this area and are well protected by the forest department and adequate guards protecting them against any damage.
First in sight , flowers like of turmeric plant or lilies were tingling in wind over the grassland. Flower sticks spread over the entire area reminds you of white candles. While going inside the area keep your eyes to the ground to enjoy number of tiny flowers of unique shapes and colours. Blue, yellow, pink, purple, white, red, velvety blue so many flower varieties are there. The colours will make you happy and the force you to kneel down and search for tiny lives taking you back to toddler age. Vast green carpet dotted with embroided patterns and contrasting terrain hue feels you with the joy of nature. Here the nature seems untouched and the clouds playing hide and seek unveiling the green ground which was just hiding now. Strong wind made our hair wild matching the wilderness. Rain has made Kaas so beautiful and decorated with flower ornaments.
