It is a good 2K walk, from the main road and you can loop down to the other hand.You should plan to start at least 15 minutes before sunrise, so that you can catch the sun rising from between the mountain peaks. It is a lovely sight. The cold breeze and the quiet make it worth a visit. Solitude is... More

Driving up to Wilson point needs having sharp driving skills. At the end awaits a beautiful view. But, do be VERY CAREFUL. Roads are narrow.

I came to this point at around 5 Am in a January morning and awaited the sunrise, which was majestically in time. Carried snacks and hot coffee in a thermos and enjoyed the coffee smell in the fresh air of the morning. A great view over the valley in the first rays of sunshine and unforgettable moments to carry away.... More

If u r a morning lover then do go there. We had an advantage as our hotel was just around 5 min from the point. Hence we took a walk. and you will find many walking to sunrise point

Must see -go early morning before sunrise so you see all the colors changing and avoid the large crowds at most points in Mahableshwar during the day time !

Sunrise Point is from where you can get good views of the hills. Most of the people tend to visit this point during the day and thus miss the sun rise. You can visit it during your Mahabaleshwar tour.

You cannot miss the sunrise at Mahabaleshwar. Witnessed the outstanding view from the highest point of Maharashtra, Wilson point. Try to reach a little early to enjoy the cool breeze, valleys on both sides and the twilight before the sunrise. The actual sunrise takes just a couple of minutes. There are tea vendors selling tea to give that much needed... More

Great place to see sunset & Sunrise. Excellent photo spot and good place to go for walks. Gives you sweeping views of the valleys on both sides of Mahableshwar. I am sure this place is a must for nature lovers.
