About Amboli

Amboli is a hill station in south Maharashtra, India. At an altitude of 690 meters, it is the last hill station before the coastal highlands of Goa. Amboli lies in the Sahayadri Hills of Western India, one of the world's "Eco Hot-Spots" and it abounds in unusual flora and fauna. However, as in the other parts of the Sahyadri Hills, denudation of the forest cover and unregulated government-assisted development are gradually ruining a once-pristine environment. Historically, Amboli village came into being as one of the staging posts along the road from Vengurla port to the city of Belgaum, which was extensively used by the British to supply their garrisons in the south and central India. The source of the Hiranyakeshiriver lies in the hills around Amboli village, and an ancient Shiva temple sits at the cave where the water emerges. The main attraction for tourists is the incredibly-high rainfall and the numerous waterfalls and mist during the monsoons. Legend has it that there are 108 Shiva temples in and around Amboli, of which only a dozen have been uncovered, one as recently as 2005.
