Amboli Ghat

Amboli is located in Sindhudurg district of Maharashtra. This hill station is at an altitude of 690m above the sea level. Having dense forests and steep mountains, Amboli is the last hill resort before the coastal plains begin in the southern ranges of the Sahyadri Hills. The hilltop Amboli gives a fine bird's-eye view of the Konkan coast. Colonel Westrop, who was a British political agent, developed Amboli as a hill station after the opening of the Ghat Road from the coastal town of Vengurla, now in southern Maharashtra, to Belgaum. 

Receiving nearly 750 centimeters (269 inches) of rainfall per year, this hill station is the wettest place in Maharashtra. Amboli is one of the few hill stations of Maharashtra from where one can see the sea. This hill station is totally swathed with cloud during rainy season. 
The biggest attractions of Amboli are perhaps the different viewpoints like the Mahadevgad Point, the Sea View Point and the Purvicha Vas, which offer panoramic views of the area. All these places provide views of the merging point of the Arabian Sea with the Konkan Coast. 

The Madhavgad Fort is another popular tourist destination located near Amboli. There are quite a few places in and around Amboli that can be explored by tourists in a day. Towards the direction of Belgaum, there are also some attractions like the Hiranyakeshi Temple from where the Hiranyakeshi River originates. Beside the temple, there is a cave that can be explored.

Other famous places that can be visited include the Maruti Mandir, Nagarta Falls and Kavlesad Point. Towards Sawantwadi, there are Shirgaonkar Point, Sunset Point and the Amboli Water falls that are quite popular tourist destinations.  Nearest airport is Belgaum, (64 km), while nearest railway station is Sawantwadi at 28 km on the Konkan Railway. One can stay at government resorts.
