Large expanse of land with beautiful views. If visiting in cooler months in mornings and evenings, and healthy, please consider taking an hour or 90 minutes walk. We went around 10 am in May and though the sun was onto us the breeze was cool almost towards the end till 11:30 am. We took the horse ride. We had a local guide for the day long trip but he got us on the horses and the horse guide took over. They don't tell you the charges at the start.. Neither did I insist to know there, I went with the flow. When we reached from the parking area to the start of table land we were given an idea of what would he shown, a long trip entailing almost all stops costing approx 3k and a shorter one around 30 minutes costing 1.6k. I later checked tripnadvisor and found warnings all over about these fake charges. I hope others check before going and avoid getting duped. Bargain hard to something around 1000 rs for the complete ride. Ask if they will stop and accompany as per your wish and where you would be dropped back. Get ther terms absolutely cleared
We were told that The horse guide would be there with us throughout and get us down and show both caves on the way. The horse guides are probably needed to point out the Sydney point, harrisons folly etc that can be seen from the table. Rest talk is all dedicated to which movie was shot where which we were least bothered about. They dropped us off at the shiva cave and asked us to go ourselves and to walk back to the parking area.
The horses are well trained and the ride is long and good. The place is beautiful on May. I can only imagine how heavenly it would be post monsoons. The tiger cave and shiva temple cave are okay. If you chose to walk you can take a break and eat at the dine ins there..

Table Land is a flat piece of land i.e plateau .The time you enter the parking ,there will be few people after you trying to fleece you for horse rides.They will ask for the Panchgani Municipality Tax Receipt and will tell there is a demo horse ride included in the ticket .Also they will tell it is not possible to cover the land on foot.

Once you are in ,they will take you on a horse for some 200 mts and then ask for the package .One package with 4 points and another with 9 points .They will show some official rate card also and say it is approved by Government.

4 points package was for Rs 1200 and 9 points for Rs 2400 per person :D .Now you start bargaining .

And now coming to the points to view -
Five different plateaus which give it the name Panchgani
One tree at the end of the plateau where one song in Raja Hindustani film was filmed - One tree Point
One lake made from Rain water
View of Krishna and Savitri river merging.
Tiger Caves - A restaurant in a cave .
Another restaurant in cave.
A green area where some more films were shot .

Thats it !

This place is a must visit but be careful of the people waiting to fleece you .They will just exaggerate what is there .

The ride will take around an hour on horse back .Please think over the price for an hour of horse ride for the above places.

Also known as Asia Plateau, the Table Top is the second largest plateau in Asia after the Tibetan plateau. Over the years nothing has changed around the area. The old shops line the pathway that leads to the table top. One can choose to walk or choose your option between a horse ride or a horse buggy ride. The horse buggy costs Rs. 600 for 4 people and will take you to 3-4 points around the table top. There's a cave at one end of the plateau but the buggies are not allowed there. Only if you choose to ride a horse. Many Bollywood movies have been picturised here and the horse buggy rider will tell you the name of the movies. There are the Pandavas footsteps embossed in the plateau. And a cave that's called the Devil's Kitchen. If you fancy to get your face or hand read and know your future then there are face/hand readers who will approach you. Or have an icecream cone while the sun beats down with cool wind blowing... There's ample of free parking space so no worries about that. Overall, a great place to spend some time. The best time ofcourse, will be the Sunrise and Sunset!

A place where wind flows without any boundaries. Great quality of oxygen. Ideal to visit in the evening with sun set beauty.
The cave below is okay place to visit once if you visit there. Nothing great. The stairs taking you to the cave are quite old and dangerous.
A flock of many monkeys will entertain you with their hunting for food.

Beyond the eye can see and the senses can fathom..... vast undulating flatland with a lake in the middle. The water is cool and clean.. Horses with tourists plod alongside, taking them on a paid roundabout. We walked for a bit. Till date, I haven't been able to complete even 50% of the Tableland area. I guess one can spend an entire day there. There is always a cool breeze blowing in summer; in winters its a chilly but pleasant and welcoming wind blowing. Adults will enjoy taking a pleasant walk, no traffic sounds or pollution to disturb... Kids will enjoy running up and down, especially where is no fear of traffic....

Table Land:
One of Asia's greatest mountain-top flatlands is Table Land, a 98-acre flat plateau that forms Panchgani's highest point. Mahabaleshwar, which is only a few kilometers distant, also boasts two flat areas, but neither is as large or as open as Panchgani's Table Land. Table Land offers unhindered sunrise and sunset views, sweeping valley views, and endless views of the beautiful fir trees.

Table Land is a popular Bollywood shooting spot. Many movies like Raja Hindustani, Mela, Taare Zameen Par, and Hum Tumhare Hain Sanam are shot at this place. It is just walkable from the main Panchgani Market, but even though there is a proper motorable road, it is a steep climb.

Table land area has 5 points in total viz Table land, Shooting Point, Pandava's Footprints, Devil's Kitchen and One Tree Point.

To be honest it is just a flat land and dirt! Nothing else!

Cars can be parked only at the entrance of the Table land. From there you have to either walk or ride a horse to see the points. Even horse carts travel only for a short distance. Riding a horse is not comfortable for all. Secondly, the horse ride has 2 types of packages. (Below are off season rates)
1) Rs 1280 for 4 points
2) Rs 2500 for 9 points.
We opted for the package with 4 points which included points like one tree (Raja Hindustani fame) and one talav (Bajirao Mastani fame). Now both these points were shown to us from far away.
This type of cheating will definitely affect tourism.

A motley of horse hirers descending on you. A plethora of face readers that irritate you. A poor collection of stalls that sell food and souvenirs. That's what you'll encounter here. However, on the plus side you do have some scenic views. If you walk a bit further you come to a small lake (?) although this is mostly used to bathe the horses. There is also a horse cart ride that takes you to the Pandava caves, although I preferred to trek it there. All in all poorly maintained and a bit disappointing.

When have travelled the place in the months of august in wich it was a heavy rainfall season. So, frankly speaking we were not able to enjoy all the place especially my mom(she just got obbsed with lot of rain water) but with thetable land it was worth it little different experience really harsh winds, seeing the anti gravity water at the edges and the scary tunnel. It ia a must visit place to at every season and the thing i regret was that I wish i would have played foot ball there. Yes, football with has rain they have big goals you just need to carry footall and some player( who are daring enough).

Unique place to go in Panchgani.

There is tiger cave and lion cave. Either you can go to tiger cave from top of the tableland or from the lion cave to tiger cave amidst the scenery. Its a short walk.

There is small eatery at both the caves. Inside the tiger cave there is a small temple underground again less than 1 minutes.

It was a nice experience. Its cool inside the caves. Can order and sit inside the caves. Interesting experience.

On the tableland you can hire a horse cart for very short sightseeing points. They are regulated and better than hiring single horses for the family.

If you dont mind walking no need to hire anything. Just walk it out. It may take 1-2hrs walking and sightseeing.

Adequate toilet facilities are not there. Paid toilets near restaurants and not too good.

Wear a cap as its open area.
