A sleepy locale, surrounded by wooded hills, Nagothana is situated on the banks of Amba or Nagothana rivulet .The main object of interest in Nagothana is the opportunity to see ‘pathemaries’, a type of country boats and other small country boats navigating through the creek. Musalman Bridge, a fabulous historic monument constructed in the year 1580, is an eye-catching sight. Situated in the backdrop of the majestic Sahyadris, the beautiful Sutarwadi Lake in Kolad is a bird watchers delight. In the pristine and calm ambiance of this lovely lake, one can feel the call of the Mother Nature. Views of the sunrise and sunset are magnificent from the shore of the lake. Sutarwadi Lake is a nice destination for those who wish to be in the luxury of solitude.
Tamhini ghat waterfalls, also known as Valse, are a pretty attractive tourist destination near to Kolad in Maharashtra. Tamhini ghat bears many waterfalls through its hilly rocky terrains. Apart from the majestic waterfalls, the place offers breathtaking views and a peace, calm environment.

The surroundings are imposing with lush green dense forests and grassy valleys.

Monsoon is a good season to visit her, during which the waterfalls take a mighty look and the mesmerizing beauty of the nature will bring any tourist back here for another visit.
