  • I went early morning and there was mist and perfect view. Also the route to reach this point is perfect. Old Mahabaleshwar road through dense forest. I even saw deer on the way to this point.  more »

  • Awesome view of the mountains and the valley! Loved the sunset. Serene n peaceful. Soon after there won't be a soul left in the area. So one needs to be careful.
  • Awesome view of the mountains and the valley. Such a beautiful place on earth ❤. Looked like European pyramid.
