Amboli waterfall is just fabulous.Visited there just last week and even the weather was awesome with light showers.The stairs of the waterfall are a little slippery so you need to be careful.You will get lots of snacks to eat near the fall.You must taste the corn there.

Visiting Amboli just when the rains are receding seemed a very good idea. You have these intermittent light showers, mist and then pristine clear weather! the holiday enjoyment starts right from Sawantwadi station to Amboli. Most of the way the road is very good, and the open auto lets you enjoy the fresh air.
All the sights which include Mahadevgad, Amboli Dhabdhaba walls, Hiranyakeshi Temple, Nangartas waterfall and Kawalesat are just enchanting. One can just enjoy the flora and fauna at its best.
It is very sad to say Nature offers us so much in this country but we have absolutely no civic sense or any sense of appreciation to accept it gratefully. It is not the locals who are responsible for the litter around all these places, but we tourists. Let us preserve and appreciate what nature has offered us in this country.

The place is beautiful and lush green. I went to Amboli for a macro photography tour in August. You get to meet and photograph so many types of frogs, snakes, moths, butterflies, and so many creatures. It is a heaven if you love photographing. The place is infested with leeches so beware of them! The way they have preserved their biodiversity is splendid. It rains a lot here. But it feels so soothing in the zero pollution environment.

Photography trip to Amboli Forest..

Peak Moonsoon and a location which receives maximum rainfalls in Maharashtra, Amboli Hills - Not a good option to spent weekends. But our purpose was different, get into the habitat and shoot some good pics of pit vipers, vine snakes, frogs and other amphibians/reptiles. These creatures are mostly active in this season and throws ample opportunity for shutterbugs. Interesting & Adventurous!!

A fulfilling drive of around 750 kms. to & fro with some satisfying photo clicks has made the RoI of this trip look very impressive :)

Amboli forest, in western ghats of India (around 375 kms from Pune) is known for scenic landscapes, waterfalls and exotic flora & fauna. As an amateur, got some good opportunities to click Malabar Gliding Frogs, Pit Vipers, Green vine Snakes, Rinkled Frog, Amboli Frog & some other creatures in dark rainy nights as well as day light.

Must visit place for shutterbugs, specially after 1-2 rains. There are reasonably good options to stay in Amboli. You may need to pre-book in monsoon,

We stayed in MTDC which was ok, other decent option include Whistling woods resort.
