An excellent place to view the Sunrise especially if you are interested in photographing the event. Care must be taken to reach early enough but not too early because the place is out in the open and can get very very cold. I was able to take some good photos of the sunrise from this place and carry wonderful memories... More

Dont know why this point is even counted as a place to visit, after negotiating the bad roads, we reached a place which was not even marked clearly, a local confirmed us we were in the right place, but there was literally nothing to see !

Nice cool breeze and warmth from the sun, amazing combination. Excellent cellular data service available on one of the highest point in Mahabaleshwar. I could video chat with my family at Wilson point. Strange but great.

Make it a point to research what time the sunrise hits and make sure you head out at least 45 minutes earlier. Once you reach the place, note that gates open only close to sunrise so if you want to pick a nice spot, be prepared to park your vehicle at the foothill itself, and hike up to Wilson Point....

Wilson Point is a nice point to visit to witness both the Sunrise and Sunset. It's situated on top of a plateau with a good view overlooking Mahabaleshwar and the Venna Lake. It's a great place to come for long walks and treks as the road is rather steep at places. There's also expensive refreshments available around the View Points.

Travelling to this point requires a vehicle. Must visit early morning or evening. Will remind you of walk in the clouds during a cold winter morning.

Visit this place to see the sunrise. The view is excellent. It is quiet in the mornings and not very crowded. Plenty of parking is available at the point, in case you dont wish to walk.

Walked from the market right up to Wilson Point. Great walk - about 45 mins. Excellent view from the top. It was misty, but beautiful. In the summer, it is a better spot to see sunrise and sunset from and also less crowded.
