This is the most famous view point and the highest point in Mahabaleshwar. One must visit to see the sun rise as it is stunning. It’s a great point for photography enthusiasts.

Headed there on a 4.5km hike from my hotel through the forest - left on time (an early 5am start) to see the sunrise in full. Very nice! Don't miss this when around.

Nice 360 degree view of Mahabaleshwar from a plateau and some observation places. If you go early at the time of sunrise, you get a beautiful view.

Best point to view the sun rise from between the mountains. The access road is narrow and needs careful driving. Else its about a km of walking which can a good option. The show lasts for about 7 mins so please be on time and take your perch. Good that the place is bereft of any vendors and horses.

It is a beautiful hill place where we can see a Sunrise in the Morning. I just enjoyed the place with lots of joy and fun. That is an empty place from where you can view a sunrise, but you will not have any food and other facilities.

Actually a very good viewpoint with a great drive until it as well! Impressive views and the best part is that it had ample area to park cars. Also, visit during sunrise to enjoy the best views !

This place is a complete yes. Plan an early start. See the sunrise time in mahableshwar and reach there before sunrise. The flowing breeze will make u fall in love with the place. Nothing too great but the beautiful weather would make it good. Winters winds blow like crazy as it's at a height. The road is a one way... More
