Where to stay at Kaas?
We would recommend Kaas as a day trip because there are not many stay options available here. Apart from a few homestays and camping option, there are only villages surrounding the kaas plateau so if you do choose to spend the entire weekend away from the city – Mahabaleshwar is your best bet (It is around an hour away).
