More than the views, the main attraction here seems to be the monkeys which abound. Nothing great in terms of views - but is less crowded.

This is one of the lesser known view points in the Mahabaleshwar hills. Plus - Less frequented by tourists, so comparatively lesser crowds. Decent views Negative - Upkeep and maintenance leaves a lot to be desired.

Not as good as sons of the other famous view points in Mahabaleshwar. Decent views available but the multiple bushes are a spoiler. Can visit once if have seen all other points

Babington point is located in Panchgani and this spot is less visited by tourists. Best time to visit is during sunset.

This is a nice place to get a good view. Like so many other "points" here or else where in other hill station, this offers a good and scenic view. Worth a visit once. Keep yourself safe from monkeys here.

This view point gives a good view of the valley. I am not sure how to grade or rate the different view points, but there is very little to do in Mahabaleshwar other than visit view points and I suggest that you at least visit some of them depending on your interest. Watch out for monkeys, they snatch cameras and... More

What was this. High shrubs covered any view. A small garden, which was downright amateur to say the least. A few seats. Only possible use would be to have lunch stop over.

I really liked this point as lot of monkeys come at this point. It is prohibited to feed them as they may get some disease with the human food. Nice place for adventure people.
