The point provides an excellent view of the koyna valley. The place needs a bit of walking to reach the construction, where you can stand & enjoy the scene.

If you are travelling on weekends then better to visit this point early in the morning to click some memorable shots . There is huge traffic... More

The walk to this place and back does take its toll but the view is worth it. There are other spots around this one.

I would want to call this as Grand Canyon of India. The view from this place is surely breathtaking and a must place for landscape photographers. If you wish to see valleys beneath you over several miles then this is the place to be. This is a must visit and I have fallen in love with the view. As we... More

Ensure to walk down a narrow lane running at the edge of mountain but its safe as long as you are not standing at the railings. Lots of monkeys so avoid carrying bags... More
