Great Sunrise Spot

A huge open space on top of the hilly area. Two raised circular structures provide excellent position for great photographic shots.

Wilson point, popularly known as the Sun rise point, is a nice place giving you a great view of the horizon . Can be reached after walking through lush green surroundings. The view of the sun rise was enjoyable and worth the trouble coming here early. All in all a perfect start to the day in this hill station

The Wilson point of popularly known as sunrise point provides an amazing view of the sunrise. The point is accessible via a small walk through a route surrounded by trees. A good way to start your morning with a healthy walk.

This is a good point to visit during sunrise. The view is really nice, however the place is over rated. There are better points to view sunrise in Mahabaleshwar itself.

The winding roads with tree cover is quite a nice walk to the point. The point gives a good vantage view.

Wilson point is said to be good to visit sunrise but I found this point an awesome point I visited during mid day in rainy season. The place was covered with dense fog with fast blowing winds making the place very charming and attractive. I recommend to visit during monsoon to enjoy this point.

This is one the best points to visit at Mahabaleshwar. At a high altitude, gives a great view of the Sahyadris and valley below.
