Quote of the Post: "Should I call this a spiritual or a lover's place." - Quote about Mahabaleshwar - Sachin Kumar Gupta

Hello and welcome to the Green Grand Canyon of India, Mahabaleshwar. It is already listed to the evergreen forests of the world. It is the hill station in Satara district (Maharashtra) about 120 KM away from Pune and 280 KM away from Mumbai. Mahabaleshwar is a vast plateau measuring 150 KM2 bound by valleys on all sides.
It is a perfect spot to relax and enjoy honey and strawberries especially during the summer. Besides the plenty of restraint paths, boating, horse riding, and golf facilities, fishing spots, trekking trails and pretty waterfalls, the town is full of lookout points. Although there are close to 25 'Points' in Mahabaleshwar, Some points to worth visiting in Mahabaleshwar are Bombay Point, Elphinstone Point, Mahabaleshwar Club, Kate's Point, Wilson's Point, Sunset Point, Arthur's Seat etc. We covered some of the must see points during our 1 day trip to Mahabaleshwar. Not to mention, but don't forget to bring your camera while travelling Mahabaleshwar.

Parsi Point: Parsi Point is a renowned picnic spot. This scenic point is situated on the way to Mahabaleshwar, and overlooks the lush green Krishna valley and the blue shiny waters of the Dhom Dam.
There is a parking area from where you have to trek a little to get Lodwick and Elephant Head Points.
Lodwick Point: This place has a great views and You can enjoy plenty of waterfalls flowing. There is a monument in memory of the general, erected by his son.


Elephant Head Point: The walk from Lodwick point to Elephant head is tranquil and serene, and the nature makes it overwhelming. The cliffs which overhang resemble an elephant’s head and trunk. It is another observation point to deep valley view. There were also plenty of pancies of different colors at the edges of the deep valleys.


Arthur's Seat: It is the most famous point and full of walkers and trekkers. You don't wanna leave this place. To really enjoy this place, You should enjoy the sun-light over the mountains coming out of clouds. You can enjoy the sweet corn here. Nearby points are Window Point (Just below Arthur's point), Tiger's Spring, echo point.


Kate's Point: This point gives you the freshness and warmth of nature having Krishna valley in back with lush green mountains at both sides. It is a good place to relax and rejuvenate as well.

Needle Hole Point: The view from here is simply mesmerizing. This is opposite of Kate's Point and can be reached through the trail at the other side of the road. A beautiful waterfall can be enjoyed at this place. The place is actually of the lookout point of Kate's Point. The place is also known as Elphinstone Point.

While returning back to Pune, We have a quick look to Mazaana Chocolate factory and had the tea break as well. Thanks to Shaju, Anjali, Atul, Karishma, and Suhas to make this trip more enjoyable.
