Amboli - The Green Valley

Amboli is a beautiful hill station, which is around 90 kilometers from the Panjim city. Even though this hill station is located in Maharashtra, one can cover Amboli in a one day trip from Goa. The Drive through the twisted Ghats road would greatly thrill any passionate driver. On reaching the top and looking down on the valley, you feel like you are standing in the heaven on earth.

There are multiple viewpoints to experience the sight of the charming valley. Mahadevgad Point offers a view  and Kawalesat point is another one.
