Bed of Pink Flowers

My cousins and I decided to pay a visit to this beautiful place. Recently, Kaas Plateau has been added to UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is also called Kaas Pathar and falls under Sahyadri region. Once in a year, an entire land of Kaas is blossoming with colourful flowers making it look like a colorful bed of pink, yellow, red, blue, purple flowers.
