Standing here and looking in the valley is an awesome feeling. The Krishna river below is mesmerising.

It is a majestic view. And it's even more amazing as it is all natural. During rainy season it would be all green, other wise it would be yellow and black (bit dried). It's wonderful in any season.

Kate's Point is named after the then British governor Sir John Malcolm's daughter. The view offers panoramic scenic beauty

Good place for visit. There are some shooting points visible from there. Nice views of Lake and dam. May be good views after monsoon.

So named because the Rock on the mountain-top is naturally cut to resemble the head of an elephant - it offers good and sweeping views of the mountain range.

Must visit place if you are in Mahabaleshwar. Provides breath taking views of the place with pleasant climate. If you are here early morning and are lucky you might even have your date with Fog.

Last DEC visited this place. As usual beautiful scenic valley view and chilled air blow our mind. you may find this point (specially elephants head) little bit boring as a stone with shape of elephants head is naturally created. Apart from this stone beautiful scenery really refreshes our mind
