Crowded place, high parking charges and average view. This place is good during monsoon and sunset only.

maybe the crowds were there because of the ample parking space which was full of litter & they were shamelessly collecting rs 50/- for parking in that place . the views are ok but if you can drive a bit further to another point its the best of the lot on this route. definitely not for tourists who like queiter...

This place has a nice view of the valley. Keep this place to visit for sunset. Food is available in small stalls but price is higher than normal. We had one Maggi at 50 Rs. A good idea will be to place your order in one of the stalls as soon as you reach there. By the time you finish... More

Each monsoon I make sure to go there on bike...what an awesome experience it always has been!! Take the straight road known as jalvayumarg which passes by Lonavala lake on its left. Continue till you see entry gate of INS Shivaji and then a left divergence from there takes you uphill to this place (4.5km from here). The interesting point... More

In the Clouds and on the clouds. This is what the place is. It’s said to be the highest point in Lonavala. You feel nothing less than the lap of nature..clouds around..winds blowing..green serene valley..beautiful white waterfall.. It’s a place which you can visit anytime of the year and with anyone: family, friends or spouse. But being here in monsoon,... More

Suddenly a huge layer of cloud came towards us and it started raining heavily, winds started blowing at very high speeds and we could not see anything beyond 1 - 2 meters. We decided to venture out and stayed... More

Lion's point is just that...A point which offers a great view of the valley below. But reaching there is half the fun. For me, it's the drive from Mumbai through the ghats that is the other half. The view is there all year around. But during monsoon, the Lion's point is mostly covered with fog, hence obstructing the view. But... More
