“Scenic Valley”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

good scenery but u should be fit enough to travel through all the stairs & be careful of monkeys as they will snatch whatever eatables you are having & parking your vehicle will be a challenge! but still worth visiting

“Grand Canyon of India”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

Arthur's seat is famous tourist location in various parts of the world like Scotland(Edinburg), Kandy (Sri Lanka) & Victoria (Australia) & Mahabaleshwar (India), The Indian Arthur's Seat, the highest point (1470m) of Mahabaleshwar. The point was named after Sir Arthur Mallet, who sat here and gazed at the Savitri River, where he lost his wife and children in a tragic ferry mishap . It is 12 kms. away from main market . This place gives breathtaking views. Raigarh, Tornagarh and Kangari forts are also viewed from here.This point is one of the better ones. Tourist on 2-3 day tours may skip this point. For others its a must do and is on same route as Elphinstone point and Elephants head.The stratification of rocks on southern side is often compared to the famous Grand Canyon of Colorado, U.S.A.

This point gives a gigantic view of all the mountains surrounding mahabaleshwar with some of them looking like big walls providing the privacy to the nature.

Look infront and enjoy the deepness :)
