experience amboli

amazing amboli …

Amboli is a small town and tourist destination located in the Sindhudurg district in the Indian state of Maharashtra with one of the few evergreen rainforest of Maharashtra. It served as the summer capital of Sawantwadi State in the pre-independence era.

Amboli attracts a large number of holidaymakers and honeymooners because of its greenery and large biodiversity. All is calm and quiet with only a bird heard singing somewhere in the distance. Mornings and evenings are punctuated by loud calls of junglefowl, while langoors and macaques chatter in the treetops.


feel the freshness

dip in …..

The cool crisp air is fresh with the fragrance of mountain flowers and herbs. Amboli is a charming hill station at an altitude of 710 m ASL in the picturesque southern range of Western Ghats. The way up is easily motor able. The road slowly winds its way though hairpin curves surrounded by greenery.  In summer, the mercury barely manages to reach 30 C. The climate is pleasant throughout the year. During monsoons, the Sun plays truant for days.
