Honestly, I was wondering what the fuss was all about. Getting here on a busy weekend can take quite the effort since the road is narrow and can get chaotic with the slightest amount of traffic. Once you are there, it is quite the anti-climax. Elephant's head is a lot prettier with lesser crowds. Lots of tourists, hawkers and horses... More

After about 1 km from the market you have to take a left turn when you see the sign board of ‘Hotel Gautam’. The road leading up to the point is very... More

Good enough for a small hill station. Might have been better in monsoons. Mahabaleshwar ain't vast, right?

We went there early in the morning and enjoyed the sunrise with a packed breakfast of paranthas. While on the way you are sure to meet lot of joggers and yoga enthusiasts. It was very close to our hotel so we went on foot enjoying the fresh morning air. It's not a great attraction it was just the company that... More

This place happens to be a sunrise point, but trust me, is glorious at any point of day. We happened to get here in the evening and the view was just awesome. Nothing much to do here but just sit and enjoy the beauty of mother nature. The point is situated on a huge flat top mountain that in itself... More
