One of the most popular hill stations on Western Ghats Mahabaleshwar offers great scenic beauty and quietness along with great many hotels with modern facilities. Only one visit is not sufficient at all.

Mahabaleshwar is surely a great hill station close to Mumbai and Pune. It has some really great places to stay for all possible budgets, right from economy to luxury. Compare to other hill stations in Maharashtra, I would say that this is the most expensive one. Good place to take long walks in serene environments. If you are here for... More

Do visit Tapola which is around 27 kms from Mahabaleshwar for water rides which are very enjoyable, the road was little damaged when we visited in Nov 2016 but road repair work with patches was going on. I would suggest that your visit to Mahabaleshwar would be incomplete without visiting Tapola. The speed boat ride was really very enjoyable.

Mahabaleshwar is indeed one the best hill stations to visit. If you are looking for a calm, quite and serene location away from the hustle and bustle of a busy city life- I believe this is the place.

Mahabaleshwar is a nice place to visit near Pune. I would suggest going on weekdays when crowd is less to enjoy the beauty of tourist points and Mapro Garden. Arthur's seat is the most amazing point in Mahabaleshwar.

I think this November/start of December is the right time to visit Mahabaleshwar as the winter is just started but not the cold out there so one can enjoy sight seeing in the day time and enjoy a bit cold weather at night.
