Hi fellows,

How crowded will Mahabaleshwar be in the 2nd/3rd week of December? Some one told me it is so crowded that it will be difficult to get a clear view from the popular look out points. Is this true or is there some exaggeration in this statement?

Also, I understand that local taxis conduct sightseeing tours with a fixed itinerary and at a fixed price. Are these taxis and the drivers generally safe and do they arrange to pick up and drop off passengers at their hotels? I want assess how easy is it to stay in Mahabaleshwar without having a dedicated vehicle at your disposal.

Thanks in advance for your responses.

Better book taxi for sightseeing by your hotel..also in fixed price, convenient and safe..

Yes, it will be bit crowded in weekend..better avoid weekends or long chain of holidays to avoid rush..
