One must go to see the place and see the mighty Sahyadri range and feel proud. Must visit. Few steps to walk. Beware of monkeys don't eat anything in front of them.

so this is one of the most popular places in Mahabaleshwar region and offers a stunning view of the valley. The elphinstone point is located at a bit distant from the main shop which offers tasty sandwich and strawberry cream.

Great views of the mountain ranges but very crowded in the evenings. Lot of traffic jams along the way.

Good views, worth the visit while doing your rounds of other places. The distant view visibility depends on the season you visit. Nothing very exciting though.

Nice locale and easy to reach. The good part is that one can see the beautiful valley and the fort from the view point. One needs to walk a bit from the parking to get there hence be selective.

Offers good view of the valley. But a bit tiresome to walk through especially for older folks. Should visit when in Mahabaleshwar.
