Amba village is a beautiful and relatively undiscovered hill station, situated on top of the Ghats between Kolhapur and Ratnagiri in Maharashtra on national highway NH 204.
It is situated almost at the center of the Chandoli National Reserved forests of about 317 sq. kilometers hence, surrounded by evergreen tropical forests.
The climate here is cool and dry throughout the year Except, for last ten days prior to rains, evening temperatures are below 18 degrees centigrade. So forget AC, even fans are not needed throughout the year, save for 2 hours in the summer afternoons.
The water comes from a bore well and quality of water is light and excellent. During monsoons, up to September 15th, rains normally range from very heavy to heavy. Jungles are full of waterfalls and clouds-mist during monsoons.
Here is a lovely place where one can escape the city life and relax in a pollution – free, calm environment amidst nature.
