It is said by locals that one can see the lights of Mumbai from the sunset point in Mahabaleshwar. But for that to be possible the sky has to be clear and with very good visibility. Go a little early to get good place to stand / sit and to avoid the huge rush at the exact sunset time.

while inquiring about the various points of interest in Mahabaleshwar we were advised to visit the mumbai point at sunset and were told to reach there on time as this point is diametrically opposite to all other scenic points of Mahabaleshwar. This is very near to MTDC resort at Mahabaleshwar and we reached there around 20 minutes prior to the... More

It is good point. You can click photos with your family. Better to go for sunrise point, you will get the better experience as sunset point was just ok

This place is near MTDC holiday resort. Many tourist come during the sunset time . The place gets very crowded during that time . I didn't find the place to be that great, if you compare with ludwick or Arthur point and may be little hyped

This is a famous point of Mahabaleshwar, we have reached there by 5 pm to watch the sunset, but this place was full of people, so you can see only heads. In my opinion, this is a average view point, nothing special. After sunset, when most of the people went out, then we enjoyed the place with tea and other... More

get their early to get a good spot for a view of the sunset & if you don't want a 100+ heads blocking your sunset shots. Far from the market with poor access roads. Giving a miss wouldn't really hurt.

Visited hoping to get a glimpse of the sunset. Unfortunately most of the tourists hope for this too, and the crowd is HUGE. Too many cars and busses and the amount of people is unbelievable. Not a good view of sunset and also too many monkeys at this point. Better view of sunset at Wilson point.

We went to this point an hour early and so started playing games offered by stalls around. And, we enjoyed the games so much that we didn't even notice it was time for sunset. Unfortunately, there were to many clouds and we could not see the whole sunset. You can enjoy some hot tea and corn after the sunset in... More

The road to sunrise point is 500 meters, narrow but in good shape. There is small tower, has around 6-7 steps where you can see sunrise point from. Be early, so you get the whole experience. Beside tourist. there was only 1 tea-seller. Tea-seller clicked some really awesome photos for me.
