Is a beautiful place to visit. Only drawback is that it's over crowded during summer vacation, Diwali festivals and Christmas holidays. While the remaining period is such that it cannot be accessed easily due to heavy rain or cold temperatures. Yet a lovely place to visit for nature lovers.

Mahabaleshwar is a quaint little hill-station in the Western Ghats. The place is known by the chirping of the birds and the surrounding lush green hills. Mahabaleshwar is easily approached from Pune after a couple of hours of travel. From strawberries to chocolates, there's lots of things to do in Mahabaleshwar.

Mahabaleshwar is a hill-station in India's forested Western Ghats also known as the Sahyadri Range. There are several elevated viewing points like the Arthur Seat Point, Kate's Point, Needle Hole Point, Elephinstone Point etc. which give a good view of the surrounding ranges. The easiest way to approach Mahabaleshwar is by flying-in to Pune and then taking the road route. Ample travel options are available from Pune for reaching Mahabaleshwar and the journey usually takes between 2-3 hours.

We went to Mahabaleshwar market where car parking used to be an issue always. but to our surprise we found govt parking area where the cards could be parked safely. But to our biggest surprise the staff charges randomly without giving any receipt in return of the payment. On asking for the receipt, they have no answer. Also there are no fixed charges for any vehicles mentioned there. No cleanliness at all.
steps should be taken by the govt there. This way they loot the tourist n take comfortable advantage of them.

Known for its captivating beauty and the beautiful strawberry farms, the city comprises of ancient temples, boarding schools, manicured and lush green dense forest, waterfalls, hills, valleys. It is great place to go.

All the spots are before Mahabaleshwar main city. If you have own vehicle recommend to stay in Panchgani as better view and cheaper. Also Mahabaleshwar is expensive, does not have local cusine. All good restaurants on road between Panchgani and Mahabaleshwar. At the lake the staff was not friendly and lack ride was very expensive and over hyped. Recommend using black taxi as prices are standard. Other private operators have own version of sight seeing options which are expensive. I did not have a good experience on this. In private cab, he offered to show 3 points. But was surprised when all 3 points are at same location just that you walk 2 mins to get a different angle to view. They are Kate point, Elephintstone (needle) point and waterfall. But they project it as 3 different points.
