At a distance of 6 km from Kas Pathar, 28 km from Satara, 41 km from Mahabaleshwar, 53 km from Panchgani, 144 km from Pune & 299 km from Mumbai, Vajrai Falls is a picturesque waterfall located near Kas Flower Valley in Satara district of Maharashtra. This is one of the most spectacular waterfalls in Maharashtra, and also one of the top monsoon tourist places near Pune.
Vajrai Falls is a three-tier waterfall cascading down from a height of around 853 feet (260 m). This is a perennial waterfall but is very spectacular during monsoons. People from different parts of Maharashtra flock to this fall during the monsoons as part of Satara tour packages to watch the beautiful flow of the stream. Urmodi River is believed to start from the Vajrai Waterfalls. There are many small caves near Vajrai Falls which can be visited along with the falls.
The waterfall is situated near Bhambavali village in Satara district. One can reach the falls by using the personal vehicle or Alawadi Bus from Satara Bus Stand. The 500 m long trek path leading to the base of the waterfall is quite adventurous but risky in monsoon. This area is inhabited by a large number of leeches. Swimming at the waterfall is prohibited because of deep ponds.
