Great views

Offers excellent views of the Sahayadri range. Earlier, kids used to sell crowns of softdrinks claiming the wind will block them back if you toss them out.

This place offers spectacular view of hills & valley. The seat is hanging at the edge of the cliff. A wide panorama of entire range including gorge of rivers emanating from Mahabaleshwar hills can be seen from this point.

It is one of the best points in Mahabaleshwar. Involves a bit of walking and climbing stairs. Finding parking for 4 wheelers is painful on weekends here. Roads are also very narrow and not in very good shape. On the way you can cover Elphinestone, Savitri & Marjorie point.
