“Serene Point”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2013

Nearby but an important point visited by us was the Elphinstone point , discovered by Dr Murray in 1880 . From here we had the privilaged view of Pratapgarh where Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj killed Afzulkhan deadly Sardar of Adilshah . It was a truly fascinating view to see Koyana valley on the left hand side and Savitri valley on the right hand side .

“Close Knit with Arthur Seat Point”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

All the points in Mahabaleshware are almost the same. You get the same view of the marvellous plateaus which are known to be one of the worlds largest plateaus. I suggest you get you one point and if you like it the best, then settle there for some time, relax, take snaps, enjoy some corn, read some book, continue relaxing and then drive back to your resort/ acco.

“BEST of the BEST point”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2012

This is one of the famous and most beautiful point in Mahableshwar and is named after the then Governor of Bombay, Sir Mount Elphinstone. From this point we get a clear view of Pratapgarh fort. It over looks two valleys, the splendid Koyna on the left and the Savitri on the r ight. The craggy cliffs and the panoramic peaks on one hand and the ravines and valleys on the other hand add to the thrill & the chill of the place and gives a spectacular view . Recommend this attraction as one of the top 5 places to visit in Mahabaleshwar
