As like other places, its good for clicking pics. If you are lucky and its not a foggy or rainy day you will be able to see sunset from here.

This is a decent place to watch the sun go down though there are other convenient points providing a good view as well. Located on the other side of Mahabaleshwar, one needs to have transport to reach/ return from the point to your hotel. Can be bit tricky walking back after sunset.

The place gets only good eating because there are lots of shrubs hiding the view.. So to get the best view of the sun one needs to stand up. I have seen better places with nicer view in Mahabaleshwar eg. Elphinston point.

I have seen much better sunset points around pune and this is not even in top 20 list. It is a bit over hyped i guess. It is better to utilise this time in a hike or some other activity.

Sunset Point or Mumbai/Bombay Point is one of the most popular places in Mahabaleshwar. It got its name as it is located on the old road to Mumbai. It has a large open space with a bandstand and is ideal place for a late afternoon picnic. The view from this place is stupendous especially during sunset. The valleys look as... More

As the name suggests, this is the place to see the sun set and what an amazing view It was. No wonder it is considered amongst the best places to watch sunsets in the star, after all Mahabaleshwar is the highest point in the state of Maharashtra. Since it's a popular place with tourists and can get crowded, better plan... More

- Great place to view the sunset from one of the highest places in Maharashtra - Best time to visit: April or May - It can get crowded at times, so better to reach well before sunset
