I found this as the most beautiful attraction in Mahabaleshwar. More enthralling when crowd is less, peaceful and amazing atmosphere especially in Rainy and winter seasons.

Good views over the valley , there are few other points enroute too. As someone has written you will definitely find some monkeys who are pretty calm compare to monkeys in other tourist locations

the view from here is just awesome. It is called Arthur's seat because a British officer named Sir Arthur used to sit here and gaze at the River Savitri in which his wife and child had drowned.

Breath taking views of Valley. You would enjoy great winds. Spend your time feeding the monkeys. Very friendly with visitors.

Definitely a point which should not be missed, if you are visiting Mahabaleshwar. At the summit of a small hillock, has excellent views of the surrounding hills. Offers a different view than other places of the hill station. Has a few other points on the way, which may be missed if you plan to go right up to the summit,

The seat is atop a valley which is scenic. Near this place u must have Ice Gola. The place is very crowded during the day. You need to climb down about 50/60 steps from the place u park your car. Tiger spring spot comes on the way which gives sweet water.
