Sunggling coyly, in the southern reanges of the Sahyadri hills. Amboli at an altitude of 690 m. is the last mountain resort before the coastal highlands settle, with a sigh, to form flat beaches.
Further down the coast, Amboli, on the southern ranges of the Western Ghats, is a quiet but pleasant hill resort. The Sea View point offers you a panoramic view of a good part of the Konkan coast. Facilities are scarce here, but you can enjoy a restful holiday away from the crowds that you find at other resorts.
The Bauxite Mines, 10 kms. away, is a pleasant and very different excursion.
If you'r looking to spend a few days in splendid isolation with your family, Amboli is an ideal resort.
Taxis and rickshaws are available, though horseback and bicycles could add to the feeling of getting away from it all.
Amboli has a cool and invigorating climate - a welcome respite in summer.
