Close to Arthur's point, and likewise a top to-do item in Mahabaleshwar. Reach early, before the sun heats the place up or tourists crowd up the place and enjoy the view of lush forests and river.

Prefer to go in morning time. Nature don't need word's to discribe the Beauty of its own.. Very nice place must visit

One place to get a glimpse of valleys of both River Savitri and River Koyna. Extremely beautiful and green because of recent monsoon rains. Best visited right after monsoons. Gets quite crowded on holidays though.

When we reached there , it was so much covered in dense fog, we could barely see. But moving in this pleasant and cold fog enhance your relaxing mood.

You get 3 sides clear panoramic view from this point. Difficult to get parking space. Avoid carrying umbrellas or hand bags to this point.
