Amboli in the rains is ecstatic, but this year as on June 18, the flow of water at the famous Amobli Water falls is very less and now the Govt. is also charging an ENTRY FEE of Rs.10 per tourist who wished to go up to the main water falls.
The said fee is being collected by the Forest department for the various developmental works undertaken by it to ensure the tourists safety.
Located at an altitude of 690 mtrs, Amboli is one of the wettest places in Maharashtra and is covered in a blanket of fog for most of the day during the monsoon and is just 70 kms from Belgaum. Amboli is known for its exotic beauty in the monsoons with loads of waterfalls, mist, rain all over to make one wet and wild.
The tourists who are going are to Amboli are a bit disappointed with flow of water in the falls but the same is expected to pick up by June end once there are good rains.
The main waterfalls is now flowing but not as it did same time last year. But even then the atmosphere is mystic and people who go there are mesmerized with the nature.
Also the police are on high alert on weekends especially to control the crowds and the young ones in particular who get drunk and cause mischief.
