Kamshet is a peaceful scenic place. The undulating paddy and sunflower fields are fringed by hills and dotted by lakes. This hill station is located in the Western Ghats (hills) off National Highway NH 4 which traces the ancient trade route that linked the west coast to the hinterland. In the hills along this route are ancient cave temples, medieval hill fortresses and colonial hill stations. 110 kilometers away from Mumbai city (on the Mumbai-Pune Highway) and 45 kilometers from Pune, the university town famous for the Rajneesh Ashram, Kamshet is easily accessible by road and rail. The immense lakes in the area and the altitude keep the temperature cool and add to the unspoilt beauty of the place.
