Mahabaleshwar has so many points and places around it. Some of them right within the area like Wilson Point. I didn't reach there for sunrise but the location is still so beautiful. It gives you a wide view of the surrounding region. Nice place to sit around and get some peace, if you could find a corner where there are... More

I'd been to Wilson Point on my previous visit to Mahabaleshwar - a perfectly lovely road for a walk, overlooking a breathtaking view of Sahyadris. Thought to capture the famous sunrise on this visit. So we reached the point at sharp 6:30 am. It was dark and cold but we waited for Sun to appear and dispel both. It turned... More

There is a proper road to reach this point, which makes it very easy to access. Whole valley looks golden under the morning rays from sun. Loved it absolutely.

Kudoos for having made a road that cant be narrower and with ridges. Wake up and set this right. And being one way, no boards announcing that and imagine vehicles coming face-to-face ! My experience.

I have been to Mahableshwar twice. First time, I could not make it to visit wilson point for sunrise. I went there in mid of the day, at that time the place was calm and empty. But you get some beautiful views. It is like a plateau on top. ON my second visit, I planned to catch up for sunrise.... More

The place offers 2 viewing points where we saw people ( way too many) taking selfies. Too many cars there which didn't let me take a good panorama picture. You need to leave immediately after as it gets "Real sunny real fast" after the sunrise. If you're staying nearby, it us highly recommended to walk or jog to this place.

This is surely not the best of the points in Mahabaleshwar, but one thing good about this is that it provides a 360 degrees view of Mahabaleshwar. If you are staying in some of the nearby resorts then you could walk down here. Otherwise there is a proper road that one can drive till here. Come here early morning just... More
