The mountain is cut naturally to resemble the head of an elephant and offers more views of the Sahayadri range. Close to Lodwick Point.

Have been there many a times. This place offers great view and you can relax well. reaching here is easy and there is no charge for entry. Beware of the monkeys who will happily take away anything to eat from you or your bag also sometimes. Rest its a must and good place to visit.

I was not at all able to rectify that elephant. There was a picture which was similar to elephant but when i tried to see the mountain it was not at all elephant by any kind.

This elephant point has 2 or 3 points in the vicinity, the Kate's point, needle point. It's a must see when you visit Mahableshwar, carry a pair of binoculars & a good camera if you can. Try and reach this point before 9.30 am then you will miss the rush and enjoy the place also getting in and out can... More

try exploring these areas and different points, a hopping visit will only make you tired. so one must relax there and enjoy . The sunset view is also great and the fresh carrot and guava was awesome.be aware of monkeys , they will snatch any eatables from you !! and can even scare you .
