BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PROGRAM:    AMBOLI is a hill station at an altitude of about 700 m.Situated on the top of ghats on the road between Sawantwadi & Belgaum, it receives around 750 cm of rainfall.It is a hot spot for the herpetofauna. The best time to visit this place is during the monsoon season. You can witness the real beauty of this place during this season. The mountains will be covered by foggy clouds, mist around, high wind, waterfalls, and heavy rains.
