Terrific place. Can be pretty windy during winter. Be careful while negotiating the blind turn. The road is narrow and it's a real blind turn. Carry some snacks with you and enjoy the scenary around. But please don't spoil my Panchgani by throwing plastic, bottles etc...

Though not as exciting as Table Land in Panchgini this is also a good place to visit during evening . You will get a good view of all around. There is adequate parking place.

This place is situated very next to the hotel we stayed (Ravine hotel). This place is must visit for a couple during sunset..Ensure you go by car or your ow vehicle as there is no transportation available here.. Keep some snacks while going and spend quality time with your loved ones.

At Syndey point , one gets to see 180 degree views of Krishna river valley, but the point is very deserted and not well maintained. A visit to parsi point may be sufficient and You may avoid this if you have a tight schedule

Could not enjoy scenery due to fog Seems to be a good place. I asked a local contractor doing construction at the point as to how the name SYDNEY POINT named, but he was not aware.

I can spent hours at this point. Perfect place for writers to start their book! I visited in the month of August, it was bit slippery but worth a view. Suggest family with kids should carry their sports shoes to cover all points in panchgani
