Chiplun is surrounded by Ghats from all sides. It is a must visit for bird lovers as Chiplun taluka is the `Paradise of Birds’. Big crocodiles live in the Vashishti and Jagbudi rivers here. The river creeks are rich with the mangrove forests. The Veer Devpat and Savatsada waterfalls near Chiplun are very beautiful…something that you truly cannot miss! The ‘Dervan Shivasrushti’ is just 2kms from Savarde village. Shree Parshuram and Vindhyavasini are the prominent deities of Konkan. Your Ratnagiri trip is incomplete without visiting these two great holy places. The nearby Govalkot Fort and the surrounding view of the creek are simply unimaginable.
