Hill Stations » Amboli Hill Station
If you are in pursuit of peace and solitude, visit Amboli hills, a tranquil hill station on the Western Ghats, surrounded by thick forests and tree canopied hills.
Amboli lies in the Sahayadri Hills of Western India, one of the world’s “Eco Hot-Spots” and it therefore abounds in a variety of fairly unique flora and fauna.
Situated 690 meters above the sea level, it is the last hill station before the coastal highlands of Goa. On the coastal side, Amboli peers over the tree lined sandy ribbon of the Konkan coast on the other three sides; you are rewarded by a magnificent panorama of the sweeping valley.
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 south and central India.
