“Arthur's seat in monsoon deserves at least 6 stars”
Reviewed July 18, 2014

Amazing mist making everything hazy around you and the vie of trees on the either side in this mist makes you feel that you are on some different planet. Imagine this beauty of the path leading to the Arthur's seat and just think how beautiful the point will be. I'll explain for you: A platform feels like hanging high in the air and on the background just hazy cold clouds and mist. You'll feel like you are in heaven. You'll see nothing beyond but imagine that the same place which has been filled by these cold and white chaps is a huge stretch of some 100kms. Exciting??
Forget the view from the point in the monsoon but the view of point itself and the way which you trek to reach there is something u'll never forget in you life.

“Great lookout”
Reviewed July 14, 2014

there are many lookouts in Mahabalashvar and this is one of the best giving you an amazing view of the hills. I loved sitting there for a long time enjoying the peace and beautiful view.

“highest peak, series of 6 points, visibility 50:50”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

This is the highest peak in M'swar and a series of 6 points. Visibility was poor when we visited due to the foggy condition but it is still worth for the experience. Not to miss. Echo point does not return any echo. Sprint water point is just good water, nothing so great. Beware of monkeys who will attack you for food if you see it in your hands.

“Queen of points.”
Reviewed June 18, 2014 via mobile

This is one of the prominent points in Mahabaleshwar, no wonder it is designated as queen of points. It is so breezy here that you feel like sky diving. Also, the sight of valley is breathtaking.
