Last DEC visited this place. As usual beautiful scenic valley view and chilled air blow our mind. you may find this point (specially elephants head) little bit boring as a stone with shape of elephants head is naturally created. Apart from this stone beautiful scenery really refreshes our mind

The mountain is cut naturally to resemble the head of an elephant and offers more views of the Sahayadri range. Close to Lodwick Point.

Have been there many a times. This place offers great view and you can relax well. reaching here is easy and there is no charge for entry. Beware of the monkeys who will happily take away anything to eat from you or your bag also sometimes. Rest its a must and good place to visit.

This elephant point has 2 or 3 points in the vicinity, the Kate's point, needle point. It's a must see when you visit Mahableshwar, carry a pair of binoculars & a good camera if you can. Try and reach this point before 9.30 am then you will miss the rush and enjoy the place also getting in and out can... More
