Today I am going to share about my native place Sawantwadi. Sawantwadi is located in Sindhudurg district in Maharashtra, about 20 Kms from the border of Goa-Maharashtra. So whenever you are travelling to Goa by Bus you will see a lake called ‘Moti Talao’ when passing by.It is popular stop for people commuting to Mumbai or Goa for refreshment and rest. It is closely built town where everything is situated near each other making it an ideal pitstop for tourists.
About the Environment, temperature is normal about 25-27°C in Winter but may dip to as low as 20. In the morning you shouldn’t miss your walk at the Talao and you will be accompanied by many local peoples. Its very hot in summer specially from 11am – 4 am. Sawantwadi is a beautiful hill station with lush green forests and beautiful valleys. It is also famous for its wooden handicrafts and toys. Sawantwadi, an aesthetic land of artists, is an integral part of the Konkan region which is in the mid-western coast of India.
There’s a Milagris High School, Colleges and various Courses to do here. So once Students complete their graduation they move to main cities for further studies. You will find a Palace, Shilpagram and many other places to visit. Few Kilometres from this town there’s Amboli Water Falls which has became a tourist attraction during Monsoon.
