The Amba Ghat hugs the Sahyadri mountain ranges at a height of 2000 ft above sea level. It is a mountain pass on Ratnagiri-Kolhapur Highway. This mountain pass acted as a connecting link from Kolhapur to the Konkan during Shivaji Maharaj’s time. It is in close proximity to the historical Pawankhind and the Vishalgad Fort as also Rehan Baba Dargah. Amba Ghat is well known for its beautiful verdant surroundings and cool weather and is a convenient tourist destination for short weekend holidays.
