Awesome place to visit. The attractions like dabhosa waterfall & kal mandavi waterfall are amazing. Must visit during rainy season
Perfect location if you are finding peace from disturbance in regular life. Spare some time and enjoy the quiteness.
It's a beautiful place to hang out during Monsoon. I will prefer a group outing but couples can also visit here for quality time.
