History of Amboli

The British, declared Amboli a hill station by the 1880s. Even before them, Amboli's potential had already been discovered by the Sawants of neighbouring Wadi. But the sky above this village in the Sahyadris continuously dripped for a good four months, if not the entire year, making it the wettest place in Maharashtra. The surrounding forests were so thick with trees and tigers at the time of the Raj, and because Matheran was so much closer, Amboli remained unchecked on maps for a very long time after.
